I have a small farm (25 acres) near the TN/KY line in Rockfield, KY. Right now we have dairy and beef cows, sheep, broilers, layers, goats, and bees. We have a shop on the farm and also sell our products at two farmers markets. We have the makings of a great farm but we need help to bring all the pieces together. If things continue in the way they have gone over the past few years we hope to expand to the 100 acres behind the farm but we want to see this piece of land closer to where it should be before we embark on expansion. If this sounds interesting to you, let me know and we can see if something can work out for the upcoming season. We have plenty of room to expand our meats, dairy products, wool products lines and would love to see if someone could make money by utilizing untapped resources.

I have two wonderful kids (15 and 21) who work on the farm and we are very intent on maintaining our peaceful home - lots of love and fun and no TV.

Let me know if this sounds interesting.

Hi Gary,
thanks so much for your post. You are just a hop, skip and a jump from the farm. We are right off the William Natcher parkway. If you go down 31 towards Bowling Green you will get on the parkway going west and get off at exit 7. Take a left and then turn right at the light. That's Blue Level Rd. You have to watch for the road to jog right (not far after you see the end state maint. sign).

Our address is 5635 Blue Level Rd and our website is www.rivercottagefarm.net. We have a blog at www.hearthtoharvest.com.

Are you farming now?

Looking forward to meeting you.

Hi Debbie,

My 2 children and I are looking to learn more about homesteading and sustainability. We are in the process of trying to find a farm that we can offer our talents and help with in exchange for room & board. My children are very laid back and love to help with anything outdoors. Let me know if you are still needing help and any questions that you may have that I can answer. Thank you so much for the consideration! Many blessings to you and your family.
