Farm, nature, hiking, tent camping, farm animals, and more!


El intercambio

We are a meat goat, dairy goat, pastured pigs, and pastured poultry farm in a beautiful location about 40 minutes from Winston-Salem, 50 minutes to Boone, and 50 minutes to Charlotte. We have creeks for taking a dip. Lots of private places for camping. We are also glad to assist with language learning and improvement. A typical day on our farm includes: livestock feeding and care, setting up mobile fences, garden care and building projects :)

Bare with us as the following statements are based on our experience with folks in the past.

To do work at our farm you need to:
be able to lift 50 lbs--that is what a bag of feed can weigh
not be afraid of farm animals--ours are fairly tame
not be afraid to get dirty
be willing to wear farm appropriate clothing, which means: closed shoes, preferably some kind of boot, long pants, full covering shirt--short sleeves are fine.
Not be allergic to everything, not dogs, cats, the outdoors, hay, bees.
be okay being off the main road a bit overnight
a NON-smoker. We don't care if you chew, rub, or use nicotine mints, we just don't want to pick up any cigarette butts on our property,
Be able to take some heat. It is not terribly hot in the summer here, but it is not cool, and we do outdoor work.
Not be against some routine work.
Keep the weed and other drugs off the property.
