Hello! We have a beautiful small ranch and home on 32 acres, 11 miles from Edna, TX on the Lavaca river, about 100 miles from Houston. Peaceful, quiet rural area. We are currently looking for help with chores around the ranch and house, and there’s plenty to do, so you may pick and choose things like gardening, weeding, watering, mowing, trimming, sweeping, power washing, painting, clearing brush/fence lines, splitting firewood using gas-powered log splitter, stacking split wood, general ranch, garden and home maintenance work, chainsawing, etc. You can build up your muscles with heavy ranch work or stick to the lighter duty chores. 30 hours per week for room and board with minimum 1 week commitment. We will cook meals and treat you like family. We would love to visit with you and get to know you, or leave you alone if privacy is what you desire. Your accommodation is a nice, clean bedroom with air conditioner and heater, attached to our garage which offers privacy, sleeps up to 4 people . Your private bathroom is inside the main house, just through the covered garage. We have a dog that does come into the house, outdoor cats, chickens and cattle. Our spacious back porch and yard are a great place to sit in the rocking chairs, enjoy a glass of wine or cup of coffee and watch the birds and wildlife. We speak English and a tiny bit of Spanish. Would be ideal if you had your own transportation. There is no public transportation, but we will consider picking you up in Houston or Austin if necessary, depending on the circumstances. We are friendly and open minded, socially liberal and educated. We welcome all ethnicities and orientations but no smoking, no drugs and no heavy drinking. Please consider coming to help us!
