On the farm side we have about a dozen cows, a dozen sheep, a small chicken flock, three pigs, one dairy goat (currently dry), two milk cows and a livestock guardian dog with the sheep. The farm sitter would need to be experienced in hand milking cows and goats and capably managing sheep, cows, pigs and chickens. Ideally this person would have two or more years of experience in these areas. Tractor experience is necessary but no other equipment is used.
In the house we have two dogs and two cats. They need only love and affection with a bowl of food.
We are hoping to go to a wedding the weekend of October 11 and November 8th and are planning a larger trip from December 20th to January 3rd.
Pay commensurate with experience. References required. Couples and well-behaved dogs welcome. We have a warm and comfortable house, can pay you in eggs, milk, beef and/or regular greenbacks. Incidentally and separately we have a rental house available November 1st on the property if you're into that sort of thing.
