    We are looking for help with family meals, fruit picking, yard matinance.
    Our summers are busy times and preparing family dinners is a huge help. Vegetarian meals preferred.
    As the summer fruit ripens there will be many weeks of blueberry and blackberry harvesting as well as the occasional day of cherries, apples, plums and pears.
    Yard work can includes clearing, mowing and such.
    Also help could be required with processing food from harvests (canning, dehydrating, fermenting, wine making etc.)
    Ability to work with us as well as on your own is required.
