  • Description

    Description

    We are a family of three adults (mother, father, grandma) and three kids (boy and girl twin 14 years old this summer and an 11 year old girl.) We live in a rural setting at the meeting point of MA, VT and New Hampshire in the center of New England.

    I am the father, Phil , and I run an entertainment / talent agency getting work for musicians all over the US and sometimes abroad. At home we run a hobby farm with ducks, turkeys, chickens, dogs, and sometimes rabbits. We also run a fall harvest / music festival, and my wife and her mother run a clothing manufacturing business, very small.

    We are a slightly unusual family for those reasons, and we frequently try to have fun, both indoors and outdoors. We are often going to festivals, concerts, and enjoying what the area has to offer.

    We have more fun than some people, mostly due to how hard we work at other times. Be prepared to work hard and to play hard here.

    We'd be looking for help with house painting, festival preparation, wood splitter operation, wood stacking, maintenance of the grounds, sign painting, even internet marketing of the festival and clothing business, etc. This could be a real fun stop for the right folks.

    Accommodation

    Sometimes we'll have available bedrooms and beds. Other times this summer visitors would be able to stay in one of our camping trailers. There is always tent and couch space available as well. We always have at least the attic which has a futon and plenty of private space.

    while we are in a rural location, we are 90 minutes to Boston, 30-45 minutes to towns / cities like Northampton MA, Brattleboro VT, Keene NH, Greenfield and Amherst MA, and 1+ hour to Hartford CT and 4 hours to NYC.
