    YES WE DO REQUIRE OUR OWN ONLINE APPLICATION BE SUBMITTED, FOR SAFETY CONCERNS FOR ALL INTERNS AND OUR FAMILY.

    THIS IS A NON-SMOKING FARM.
    We raise goats for meat, chickens for eggs, and a large vegetable garden.

    UPDATE: Deck is finally finished (except for railings) Hot Tub in , next build project is new pen for chickens. Goats need hooves trimmed. New Construction, Underground Canning House to be done, remodeling inside of house to do, Gardens, Raised Beds, Pallet Beds.

    We sell at our local farmers markets on Saturdays, May to October. Online Market is open Year Round. Friday’s is baking day here on the farm. I make sourdough bread, and gluten free crackers that I sell at the farmers market.

    Farm work always has something to be done and we love having interns who love to help and learn. Garden needs to be planted. Greenhouse needs to be maintained. More pallet gardens to get made, etc. These are just things we do everyday. If you are interested in learning, this is the place to do it.

    More Interns, More Fun. We like to sightsee on Sundays. Great Smokey Mountains, Cades Cove, Grandfather Mountain just to name a few. We enjoy our interns and love to show them around our area as well.

    We have room for 6 interns now.

    WE ARE A YEAR ROUND HOST.
