Hey all.

We here in the beautiful northern Catskills of New York State are looking for a farm caretaker and farmhand to live and work at our farm and permaculture site.

Mossy Stone Farms is in it's 3rd season as a market garden and in need of an individual or couple to live in the farmhouse, help out with harvests and market days, and help us design and implement our future permacultural project, including a series of terraced paddocks, rice paddies, cold climate aquacultural projects and food forests.

As far as the farm goes you will share in the net revenues from our young but growing market garden operation.

Room and board is provided, as well as all the veggies and eggs you would ever want to eat.

This is a great opportunity for a young person / persons to get hands on experience in market gardening, as well as help design a permacultural site from the ground up.

For more information about the farm visit:

Or send us an email with questions:

I would be interested.

I am a single drama free 36 year old male that would like to learn more about farming and sustainable living. Looking to get off grid for a while (tired of the rat race) and connect with cool people.

I'm hard working, learn fast, and I've studied meditation and yoga a lot. I have a college degree along with experience in teaching, acting, and many other subjects.

I will try to contact you via email also.

I look forward to meeting you.

Best Regards,
