We are private quiet horse farm with 2 horses chickens, a couple of cats and a small kitchen garden. There is a fishing pond, lots of wooded trails and mountains for hiking. The farm is about a 15-minute drive from down town Asheville, NC. Asheville is a desirable town with excellent food, music, culture, and an active outdoor community. The area is well known for adventure sports like great mountain biking, hiking, climbing, paddling, etc.

We typically look for one or two folks to helpx , for 1-2 week stays. We are looking for independent workers that can help with summer garden chores, weeding, yard work, etc., plus daily routines like feeding chickens. We have a few things that are horse related, mainly morning and evening feeding along with basic barn chores, and occasional reloading the loft with hay. But the majority of projects are non-horse related. We have inside projects when weather dictates.

**we are currently looking for house-sitter for 2 weeks in June and 2 weeks in July**

Helpers are asked to work up to 15 hours a week in exchange for room. Meals are on your own typically. We do meals together when we can, we do keep our kitchen stocked.

We do have cats that are inside/outside cats, so we do not allow dogs (sorry).

Helper accommodations are a large room with a king bed, with a private bath and shower. As we are in the country, having your own car is extremely helpful if you want to see Asheville and the surrounding area. We always offer to take our helpers into town when we can but it is random and can't be guaranteed. A personal cell phone is highly recommended as we have no land line here. We do have Wi-Fi.

We are fun easy going people, and are looking for helpers that will join us for a great time working and playing in Asheville. Come spend a week in the mountains of western North Carolina!
