We are a multi-generational family homestead deep in the mountains of beautiful Western North Carolina. My family has occupied this 101 acre farm for the past 40 years. Our farm is located 45 minutes from Asheville, 25 minutes from Marshall and 45 minutes from Hot Springs.

We are looking for skilled and semi-skilled individuals who are willing to help us with the upkeep of our land. Jobs may include working in a small organic garden, clean-up, firewood, fencing, carpentry, landscaping, clearing trails and many other small jobs around the farm.

The weekly expectation is 10-15 hours of work in exchange for accommodations. The helper/s will supply and cook their own food and can share the harvest of whatever is currently in the garden. Community meals will be occasionally offered but not expected.

The extent of the stay is best for us with a longer commitment of one to three months. Accommodations suit a couple or two people traveling together.

We have a large rustic barn that has been transformed into living/ work space. You will have a kitchenette, refrigerator, bed, and bathroom for your convenience. We have many acres of dense mountain forest to explore as well as a fresh, spring fed pond to swim and sunbathe.

Our farm includes 5 people, 2 dogs, 4 cats, and 6 horses as well as lots of wildlife and birds. We are nature loving people who have a deep connection to the land. Our tribe includes an artist, coffee shop owner, yogi, acupuncturist, and young explorer.
