Not quite retired couple on a small homestead would welcome helpers for the 2016 growing season. General all around farm work includes soil prep, planting, weeding, pruning, harvesting a variety of crops in our ever expanding gardens. We also have a dairy goat herd, pastured pork, pastured poultry and pastured turkeys. In addition, you must love dogs. We raise and breed Great Pyrenees as Livestock Guard Dogs. We use no chemicals and are a non-GMO homestead.
We have plenty of projects to reach our goal of self-sustainability and would put to use any skill sets you may bring with you.
Learn how to can, dehydrate, ferment. We will be making goat milk soap, butchering livestock, season extension with our hoophouse, etc..
A private bedroom and bathroom are provided. You are welcomed to our family table for meals. We prepare real food from our homestead.
We request 25 hours a week of your labor. We are nine miles from a summer tourist town. There will be ample opportunity to explore, find a part time job, meet interesting people and acquire bartering skills.
No smoking in the house or in the barns.
No Drugs.
