Hi everybody,

We're looking for some help for the season and hopefully longer.  I work at Rushy Springs Farm in Talbott, TN, and we're way short on labor power to get this farm where it needs to be.  I'm working for Jim Smith, who has been farming for most of his 70 years on Earth.

You'll get to work with an expert in chiles and salt brine fermented hot sauces. There are over 30 varieties of chiles being grown.  There are also currently tomatoes, garlic, citrus, bamboo, and many other interesting things growing at the farm.  Even more would be possible with more help.  Jim has a compelling vision of what this farm could mean to the local community and larger society, and we really need more committed individuals to move forward.

There are potential options to live on the farm.  The living situation would depend on the duration of your intended stay, etc.  Jim is interested in WWOOF style arrangements, but he is also open to discussing long term employment opportunities.

Talbott, TN is about 40 minutes (approximately 35 miles) northeast of Knoxville and less than 10 miles from Morristown, TN ( a decent sized city in that it has 30,000 residents).  A nice opportunity to experience eastern TN and learn a lot in the process. 

Here's a link to the farm's website:


Send a message through Permies and tell us a little about yourself.  Let us know about your farming/gardening/homesteading experiences and what you're hoping to get out of working on the farm.  Thanks for your time, and we look forward to hearing from you.
