It takes a Village to Farm.
What’s so hard about Farming? Everything comes before You, Animals, seedlings, impending weather prep. Everything the industrial machine protects you from.
Gardening is a Fun, rewarding Group Sport. Every day is different. Can you hang in from seed to fruit, nurturing daily, bringing into the Kitchen, sorting, serving, selling, seed saving? When your self employed, you quit when it’s done, not at the whistle. When the weather changes, we change.
Kitchen is a Crucible
Large, Established Organic farm invites members to join in year round gardening for market and farm guests. Diverse farmscape, many established plantings of fruits, nuts and medicinal plant production. Lots of tools, tractors, buildings. Private, not too remote, one hr to town w shops/ culture.
Plan on staying on farm. Outside paying work is not a plan. Many streams of income here. Va zone 7 has warm days, cool nights. Winter Sun has your hat and gloves off by 10am. Cold days are great in any of many hoop houses. Lots of on farm water, river, water body, irrigation systems, Yes ! Rain.! Owners/operators are grunt workers without gov subsidy or trust fund. We have everything but more hours in the day.

Want to start a conversation ?
Tell us about yourself. Why Farm? Who have you fed & cared for? cook from scratch? Are you a do it your selfer? repourposer ?
This is a place to join others helping others, feeding each other for Exponential results. Gardeners produce something, the rest of the world sells time, buys low. sells high. Food makes a rickety Table a Feast.
