Hello! We are looking for a fun, hardworking, nature loving person or family to join our farm team!
My partner and I are 23 and recent college grads. I work part time at a forest preschool and at our local co-op. Stewart works at a sustainable construction company. Our “farm” is located in Mitchell, Indiana. Which is basically nowhere but close to a really cool open minded town called Bloomington.
We have just over forty acres with pigs, goats, rabbits, chickens, dogs, cats, snakes, and one guinea pig. We love love love animals and you are welcome to bring yours. We also have several rotating garden beds and we vend at our local farmers market.
Year round we are growing food, foraging, caring for the animals, tapping trees, and taking on millions of other projects that interest us.
Neither of our parents grew up farming so we are making it up as we go with the support of kind neighbors who have done it all.
As far as living situation all we have to offer is a room (a second room if you have kiddos) in our house with a private bathroom. Furnished or unfurnished. We’d like five hours of farm work each week and help with the utilities and I would help you find a job in the area if you wanted one. Also if you were interested in hanging for the long haul we could build a cabin on the property.
We are really just looking for another fun, positive young person who loves the earth, working with their hands, and being outside.
Our property has two large creeks that you are free to fish in, camp on, kayak down when the water is high, etc. I built a bouldering wall in the garage if you like to climb. We are planning on starting bees this spring and hope to build a greenhouse this summer.
Kids are welcome we have had roommates with kids in the past. We do not have internet, tv, or cell service at our house so do consider that. Please pm me with any questions!

Hi Kelsey! Welcome to permies! Thank you so much for coming out here to permies.com and letting us know about your place and desire to have someone join you!
I am a soon to be graduating college student, and I am goofy about permaculture. I have spent most of my free time the last four or more years of lfie learning as much as I can about permaculture. And After finally getting some hands-on experience volunteering at a better than organic farm in Missoula, MT for a few months, I'm very sure this is what I want to do with my life! So, I am all for putting my physical and mental labor to this.
My current skills that I can bring into your place, at the moment, include being good at cooking, crochet, and knitting. I'm experimenting with fermentation right now in the dorms doing vegetable ferments. I'm reading Nourishign Traditions by Sally Fallon, and it makes me so excited about all the possibilities of good healthy traditional and ancient foods that I could prepare for people once I'm on my out of college!
I would love to join you and your partner by devoting my energies to making your site a more permaculture and abundant place! And I would love to gain hands-on permaculture experience on your site by just having at it and learning as I go, like you two are!
Would a passionate person, like me, possibly be a good fit for your place?
Maybe my skills with cooking could be used to make a new source of income at your place?
