We're a family living on an old farm (35 acres mostly forest) we're trying to get going again.
Has various structures to clean out and reactivate.
Work to do: restore old apple orchard, prune, fertilize organically.
Some landscaping, planting. Fixing up barn to make more habitable. General help, maintenance work. Mow field with mower tractor.
Preferably someone with experience in farming/building/working on farm. a couple would be ideal.
You can stay in camper + 2 meals in exchange for 6 hours flexible work 5 days for remainder of warm season or beyond.

(I have been there before) anyways my email is if you could message me we can work out more details thank you.

Good morning Steve! My name is Erin and my partner AJ and I are very interested in this offer.  We are moving toward Asheville late March or early April of 2017.  We hope to have secured a camper by that time and are looking for a farm that needs help and may be willing to trade labor for use of a bit of land for our camper.  We are honest, hard working, and love to learn!  I believe we could be a great asset to each other. Please email me or call me at 336-420-1898.  Thank you in advance for your consideration and I look forward to speaking with you!


I have a knack for fixing things like this ... um ... sorry ... here is a concilitory tiny ad:
