We live a few miles south of Taos, New Mexico on a beautiful, quiet dirt road. The house is a 2800 sq/ft 3BR/2BA adobe on 2 acres of land with a hot tub, lots of fruit trees (apricot, apple, cherry, plum and chokecherry) and a great view of Taos Mountain. We have one dog, a cat, 30 chickens and a large vegetable garden so we are looking for a sitter who loves animals and tending a garden (weeding a couple days a week, making sure that the watering system is functioning properly, and eating whatever is ready).
Taos is at its best in the summer with hiking in the mountains, rafting, biking trails all near by. The town is a thriving artists' colony with many galleries to check out and there will be great music in Kit Carson Park. Restaurants in the town offer a wide range of cuisine from northern New Mexican to Asian. We are just over an hour north of Santa Fe and the ruins at Bandalier, and two hours from the Great Sand Dunes Natl Park in Colorado.
We will be traveling a lot in 2020 to sail in Mexico where we have a sailboat as well as using our camper in the South West. Looking for farm sitters that enjoy the peace and quiet!
This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
We travel a lot around the world, speak different languages and love different cultures. We also love or small home and farm environment where we can be close to mother nature.
Do you enjoy working in a vege garden, walking the dogs, feeding the critters? We leave for a trip Late september to mid october so ideally want someone to farm sit for us.
