  • Description


    We are a family of 3 humans. We have 8 goats, 3 dogs, a fancy black cat and 8 chickens. I have two boys,age 13 & 18. We have sold our urban homestead in Asheville and have moved to the surrounding area in Beautiful Burnsville NC.It is an easy 45 minute drive to downtown Asheville. It does have its own town with brewery/pizza and coffee shop.We are 10 minutes to the grocery store.We have an older house to rehab.We would love help with all of it especially fences,barn,animal care, and other homesteading projects.
    We share a big meal together on our workdays. We often have light snacks the rest of the day while working but are willing to accommodate different eating habits and diets.We are healthy eaters.We rise early and hope you do too. Work is dependent on projects, skill set and work ethic. Good communication is essential.Negotiations are always welcome before commiting to a stay.
    We have practiced social distancing and quarantined amongst our small family.we would appreciate that from you as well.
