If you are planning staying long term and have learned how to handle everything here, then i might ask you to take care of the household by yourself and leave for few days if that is suitable.
This is not a proper business yet, just starting with this idea of countryside free-range organic bird farm and cannot yet provide monetary compensation for work 5h per day currently, but if there are good skills and will to do more work, then i'm sure that we can make mutual agreements on that subject too...

Estonia is famous for its bogs and there are tons of those... in 20km radius we have 4 of them to visit.
Near here are The Ruins of Helme castle that are more than 500 years old. Next to it are sand caves that people used to live in hundreds years ago.
Airports Tallinn(Estonian) and Riga(Latvia) are the same distance from farm so there is not much difference which one you want to land on if coming with plane.
Also can pick you up from Tartu, Valga/Valka(Est/Lat) or Valmiera(Latvia). Rare cases from Tallinn.
Little town Tõrva with bus traffic is pretty close(7km) from here.
