Hello, We are looking for someone to help on our farm in the mountains of western North Carolina. The farm is 300 acres with 12 miles of hiking and mountain biking trails. We grow Christmas trees and mushrooms on the farm. There is a tiny house for you to live in. It is suitable for one person only or a couple. We are looking for someone to live in the tiny house, clean the main house and provide child care for a grandkid who is 13 years old, harvest mushrooms on the mushroom farm (shiitake ,oyster, lion's main) plus grocery shop, clean the main house and run errands. There is work on the farm during tree planting and tree harvest that will be paying farm wages .Experience in a vineyard is a plus. There is also some other paying work but it is mostly seasonal except small jobs on the farm. The houses are in a beautiful setting in the woods on top of a mountain. Great secluded location that is peaceful and tranquil. It is good if you have your own transportation. A front wheel or 4 wheel vehicle is best. App State University is located here as well as many attractions. Grandfather mountain is a 30 minute drive from the farm. Please do not apply if you are traveling with a dog. Also no smoking. All your housing and utilities will be free. There is internet access.
We may be traveling so part of the time so the only job would be house sitting and child care. The situation would be perfect for someone who enjoys solitude and a peaceful place to live. Great for reading and writing if you are working on a book. Due to the pandemic there is not much social activity on the farm. There are hikers and mountain bikers on the trails. We do have a disc golf course. We are in need of help as soon as possible. You must have a valid drivers license. Having your own car is a plus but not a deal breaker.
Our tree harvest starts November1St so there is paying work for a month.
