Duck Dance Farm
This is the Deal
We live on a spectacular 4 acres at the base of Mt. Mitchell on an old trout farm with seven ponds and a hard running creek on the property.
We raise a variety of heritage breed dual purpose poultry with our primary focus being the preservation of endangered domestic duck breeds. We raise 8 breeds of ducks, 3 breeds of geese, french guinea fowl and a couple of chickens. We use non GMO feed
Our ponds are stocked and we regularly harvest fish for our own consumption.
We ask 25 hours a week labor. Building skills much appreciated.
You will have the opportunity to learn all aspects of the small farm poultry business from incubation to harvest. We do it all tours, workshops, eggs, meat, and live birds. We incubate and have mother raised birds.
We offer good omnivore chow and are happy to accommodate vegetarians.
We are artists and entrepreneurs looking to create a sustainable permaculture farm in a peaceful mountain setting.
We are not open to children at the moment. No pets please. We speak mostly English but are very open to non English speakers. Pat spent many years working with a Spanish speaking population. We very much enjoy hosting people from other countries.
We work hard and eat well, no gmos or heavily processed food. Our volunteer helpers have been amazing and we have accomplished much more than we could have imagined at this time thanks to our volunteers. It is a pleasure to see people come to this beautiful and healing land to become strong and healthy with good food and hard work.
We are a family of 4. 2 oldsters and 2 in their 20's all working together to get it done.
We look forward to helping people enjoy the spectacular Black mountains of western North Carolina.
We have an amazing creekside campsite or indoor very rustic accomadations.
