My husband and I have a small farm, that has a lot of growing to do. We raise sheep and have two donkeys, chickens , ducks, rabbits two Guineas named Gilbert and Gilligan and no children. Goats are next! We hope for cultural exchanges along with 4 to 5 hours of help, 5 days out of the week, not including meal prep and clean-up. Summer is here so fertilizing and trimming bushes, lots of weeding, around farm needs to be done. We recently purchased a pretty large Tractor that you will learn to use, it helps to mulch and lift heavy things.
We wrapped up an outside shower supplied by filtered rain water, or not, that will be amazing to use. Privacy fencing posts are in so that is almost complete. We have outside laundry facilities and WIFI. This exchange does not include any children just a lot of animals that we take care of and love.
Our recent somewhat lengthy trip to New Zealand is where we learned so much about sustainability. This trip opened up a world of ideas needed to live on our own with very little outside intervention.
We are finishing up a hoop house with long raised beds to maintain soil quality and provide crops in the colder months a seeding shelter for propagation is in the works.
We have recently upgraded our wood working tools to “top of the line”,if anyone has the passion and or skill to use them. If you have an interest we will teach. Painting and carpenters skills are always helpful. We are hoping for a website soon and could use help with our new Mac computer. if you have artistic talent, Mosaic is my new passion and we will support any of yours during your stay here.
We are 60 Miles north of Nashville for your love of All music, not just “Country”. We are happy to help with getting you into the cities when needed. We do have internet; so vital while traveling. We are located on quite a large lake that we never seem to have time to go to. Great helpers is the best excuse to make it a priority.
Mammoth Cave National Park is near by, which have biking and trails abound.
You will have your own sleeping space small but nice. Two weeks is the minimum stay on our farm. Smoking outside only. We eat all foods and I am talented at vegetarian cuisine.
We also ask for a copy of your passport, or valid US Identification, AND a Covid Vaccine card upon your arrival for everyone's safety.

Learning sustainability and the practice of it have numerous benefits for our health and planet. We try to run our farm and our personal lives with that in mind. Sometimes it's not always easy to be consistent but once you get better at it , It becomes easier. So that's what I hope to teach my helpers.
Having been a worker and also hosting myself, I realize We have so much to offer in the way of cultural exchange. But selfishly I want to also Learn from my workers. I Remain in touch with many of my volunteers and it is such a great joy.
Of course on the farm we need help in various areas, feeding watering maintaining pastures. All other projects we will work together. It is just as important to Us for the cultural experience as is the help you lend. My only requirement is that you think safety, can help unsupervised and is a self-starter. And buddy you better clean up daily after working on your project, :) cleaning and putting away your tools. :)
Single bedroom small but nice in the main cottage. In the summer months we have a loft in the barn that many helpers have absolutely loved giving them their own privacy. Shared bathroom,
For couples a snazzy retro motor home with all The amenities.
We are located on a large Beautiful lake. I Love to fish and we have a boat that never seems to get in the water. This is a beautiful area to hike and cycle, and the nightlife of Nashville can be obtained. We love our National Park nearby, Mammoth Cave.
Accès Internet limité
Nous avons des animaux
Nous sommes fumeurs
We have good WIFI. However we would all work starting in the morning, until the help perimeters have been met. I would need convincing about any other arrangement.
I have 30 amp hook up and water assessability. But care should be taking during the winter months.
We allow for pets, However You and They must understand that Fric and Frac our two donkeys, take care of our sheep so they can be harmful to dogs if that are not well trained.
