The Experience

We have a rather large garden space available but no help getting it ready. If you would like to plant and tend the garden for us, we can give u a space to grow and sell at the local farmers market. If weather is bad and we cant' work outside in the garden, you will either have free time or we will do inside work. All positions on this farm are room and board only.

I had a most excellent and fun week at the old farmhouse ! Judy and I talked and laughed a lot and I cannot believe how many things I learned in the short time that I was there from making pickles and baking bread to work in the farmers market planting vegetables and working to tend the garden. Walter and Judy drove an hour each way to make sure that I saw the Biltmore house in North Carolina and I felt totally at home when I was there
Thanks again Judy and Walter tell dolly I say hi LOL

I had my expectations before I came. Now, for sure, I can say that my experience on the farm was much better than anything I'd planned.
The hosts are sensational people in all aspects. Courteous, funny and always respected my way of being and my culture. They also took special care in my adaptation, since I'm not fluent in English and had no experience with farm activities.
I really hope to return on the farm to meet them again.

Marcelo was a pleasure to have on our farm. Very helpful, and eager to learn. Added Bonus: He is a great cook. Our hope is that he will return soon., and we are looking forward to meeting his family some day soon. Thank you again Marcelo for all your help here on the farm and for taking such good care of us.
