  • Description


    We are a family of 6, 4 Children ages 7-15, we enjoy Soccer, camping, swimming, skiing, and many other activities. Mother works part time and Father Full time. Grandfather lives with us as well and we do have an exchange student at times during the school year. We are looking for someone to help out on our hobby farm during the week, learn English. Would suit an independent hard workawayer to help with the daily chores 4-5 days a week and other projects on the growing farm. We have a small flock of sheep, a stable with riding ponies and chickens for eggs.
