About Fishing Creek Farms
Fishing Creek Farms is a quality property with a one of a kind owner. Both are unique to the sporting industry. The attention to detail and amenities are in place for the guests, but also the staff. Staff housing is second to none, when compared to the industry standard of "staff housing." Private rooms with shared common areas are standard here. Fishing Creek Farms is a high end operation with family values and a commitment to excellence. Fishing Creek Farms should appeal to any mature professional looking for an above average work environment. Fishing Creek Farms does conduct employee drug testing.
The Employee Experience
Our employee experience at Fishing Creek Farms allows for both private space and interaction with co-workers outside of working hours. Each staff member has their own private bedroom (fully furnished with towels, linens, and bedding). Both staff houses have a shared kitchen and common area in addition to furnished patios for relaxing and enjoying the evenings. All staff has access to over 700 acres of managed lands for hiking, fishing (3 trophy bass ponds) and relaxing. There are gravel roads throughout the property that are perfect for the casual stroll or the more serious runner. The staff has access to the 5-Stand shooting on the property as well (when hunters are not out). Our clientele is top shelf and treats staff with great respect and courtesy.
The ideal candidate for Fishing Creek Farms is someone with previous experience in the hospitality and/or lodge industry (or a desire to learn) and who has a mature and professional attitude. We want everyone to enjoy their time and experience at Fishing Creek Farms; however, we have high expectations for each person's dedication and commitment to their role as part of the team. We value employees who are on time for work and are present each day when they arrive. If a candidate is looking for a party environment for the time after work, then we are not the right location.
Room and Board
Fishing Creek Farms provides each employee with room and board. Each staff member is typically provided their own private bedroom with access to a common bathroom. All towels, linens, and bedding are provided. Each house is comprised of three bedrooms and two baths with a common kitchen and living space. Each house has a furnished patio/deck area for relaxing in the evening or on days off. The houses are fully furnished with cooking equipment if you want to prepare food, although meals are provided when guests are in-house. Our chef prepares lunch and dinner for all staff, and does a great job! House staff eats breakfast at the lodge each morning. Outside staff is in charge of their own breakfast, but ingredients are provided. Typically, Sunday night meals are not provided, as it is everyone's time off. Most staff choose to eat from the food provided in the main kitchen or go to town for dinner.

Getting Here and Getting Around
We are located 30 minutes from town and services so having your own transportation is essential. Personal vehicles are allowed and there is room for parking at the staff housing. The main lodge is located within a short walking distance from the house staff accommodations. Outside and guide staff housing is located across the road from the main lodge. There is no public transportation serving the lodge location.
Fishing Creek Farms allows for a number of outdoor activities on-site for staff if they choose. We have three trophy bass ponds (bass, crappie, catfish). We offer access to our 5-Stand shooting facilities. Staff is allowed access to over 700 acres for hiking, running, walking, wildlife photography, etc. We are located 35 minutes from Athens, GA (home of UGA) so there is a great music and downtown scene with great restaurants and events. The farm is located a few hours drive from both Charleston and Ashville, SC. Both areas are known for food, music, art, and events.
