Diversified organic production, with livestock. We raise chickens, goats, pigs and rabbits for meat. We have laying hens, ducks and geese. Year round production in hoop houses, that includes some seed starting, We use organic methods, and are also working on some different marketing techniques. We have a newer blog, newsletter, and website. We are actively marketing to local folks, small restaurants, and small grocery retailers. You will work with animals and plants. We do most of our vetting, all of our own pest control, harvesting, packing and more. We also butcher on the farm. We do ask that you plan to work six hours a day. We have time to train in animal care and in the care of plants. Your lodging is in our home, in a private room with an attached bath. It is supplied with linens, towels and a television. We share laundry facilities and cooking. Our farm is seven miles from town, so specially supplies and goodies must be purchased in advance. We do patronize our organic food co-op and the nearest Earthfare when we can as we do deliveries. Time off is negotiable, but must be agreed upon at the beginning of the work week. We do have a sort of high speed internet on the satellite, but we have no cell service in this holler. Regional centers include Asheville, NC, Knoxville, TN, Abingdon, VA. Very scenic mountains, rural and minimally developed. Dogs, cats, children and other animals live here! This is not a place for allergy sufferers. We also heat with wood- and that means dirt.
