Rural rustic homestead in East Tennessee offering place to stay for honest, trustworthy drug free individual who is not stranger to hard work. Also neighbor is seeking goat and chicken ranch part time paid helper. The place is an old run down farm that has mostly mountainous mature forest with a few small pastures and about a couple acre tilled garden. There is an old house that all the locals thought would get torn down a 100+ yr old tobacco barn and several other out buildings including a root cellar and canning building. Building/woodworking skills a big plus. For the right person you could put up your own shack in the forest there are lots of mature trees live and dead for building supplies. There is power on the property and we are not vegitarians. there are springs and a well on the property and there is large river for fishing and such a short walk away. If this sounds like something that interests you lets talk further

Hi my name is Zachary Welch I'm 27 years old and currently doing work trade on a 200 acre farm in Virginia but the woman running the show is never happy no matter the amount of hard labor I put in so I'm looking for another opportunity and exploring options. I do tend to voice my opinion on how I think things should be done but here I have no freedom of expression. She has had multiple people try to help her and says they are all the problem...but she isn't open to change and what she says she wants will NEVER work doing it her way....I have many plans and ideas but no freedom to put into action. I also have a fiance that could work a job in town while I care for the farm...I have 2 hens and also 2 dogs.. I love to hunt morel mushrooms as well as hunt and fish...I know many wild edibles and pretty good with trees. I like to say I'm a man of the woods. If your still looking for a hard worker and willing to accept ideas then feel free to contact me through email...my email is welchz14@gmail.com or my cell phone number is 740-637-2517. I have a bunch of wood from pallets to 1bys also 2×6s I can build and construct. Before trying this joke of a place I was a concrete finisher so I know about that as well. I currently feed and water 3 horses which we make their food into mash as one of the horses has no back teeth, also 3 ponies and a donkey, and around 36 chickens and 6 cows.. I do this 2 times daily. I'm an early riser hard worker and early sleeper. This is the life I want as I see mainstream society digging a hole that one day will consume us all... I love being self sufficient and living off the land as much as possible. THIS IS THE LIFE I WANT TO LIVE AND WILLING TO DO EVERYTHING SHORT OF KILLING MYSELF TO ENSURE SUCCESS FOR NOT ONLY ME AND MY FIANCE BUT ALSO YOU AS THE LAND OWNER. I am also very good with gardens as I have said I love nature and everything to do with it. I am very grateful to be here where I am now but I can't handle nothing ever being right no matter how much effort I put into it. She is just very ungrateful. The farm is a failure and until she realizes her ways don't work it will continue to fail. I am being completely honest and open here so I hope you don't take it the wrong way. I look forward to hearing back from you and hopefully we can work something out. From the description I feel like I could work out for you and help you out while at the same time your helping me. Thanks for your time.

Hi, my name is Brian Galbraith. Is this position filled. I would be very interested in trying to work something out if not. I'm in my 40's but healthy as a horse and hard physical work is exactly what I desire to do. I am ready to leave the fast paced urban life (I grew up in the country of MS) and start a life by working land that is working towards being self sustainable. I have many building skills and have built everything from cabinets, to pole barns, to custom sportfishing boats. I also have a back ground in organic gardening. I grew up in the Navy as a rescue swimmer. This should tell you something about my personality as I chose a job to save people and not harm them. If you are interested in discussing, please email me at bgalbraith6@hotmail.com.
Regards,
Brian
