Compensation: Monthly Stipend and Housing
Location: Tennessee River outside Chattanooga, TN
Williams Island Farm is located on a 450-acre island in the Tennessee River just downstream from Chattanooga, TN. The farm provides food for several of the city’s restaurants and grocery stores and has a stand at the farmers’ market. We adhere to organic growing practices and try to be as sustainable and self-sufficient as possible. We need a farmer or farming couple who are willing to learn and work hard to help the farm grow. The vision is to be able to provide a place for young farmers to come and gain experience growing and also to practice a lifestyle that requires one to be self-sufficient.
We seek to fulfill our role in the Chattanooga local food community and be an educator for it's young people. Housing on the farm is off-the-grid and there are monthly stipends available. Tasks will include working with tractors and other farm equipment, building structures, cooking, growing crops and delivering food, taking care of animals, and working with interns.
