  • Description


    This is a small hobby farm on a riverside location in the Comox Valley, Vancouver Island. Help is needed with yard and house maintenance, and with the flock of purebred poultry and 4 small fainting goats.. I'm a single person on the acreage, with a number of house pets..ie bulldog, furless cats, cockatoo. for you to be an animal lover (and an outdoorsy person) is paramount. I need general help with all sorts of different things!! Gardening, poultry, yard help, minor landscaping (however would love to get a stone patio installed) and some small house repair issues. Wi fi is available in the main house..however Ive been using a travel trailer for accommodation, unfortunately there is not wi fi reception in the trailer. If you are a smoker, I ask that you smoke outside.. In the spring it is interesting on this hobby farm...as I also have peacocks that are noisy for 8 weeks during their breeding season. But you do get to see spectacular displays from them that time of year. But spring is also when I am in need of the most help with the garden and yard.
