    We have many tasks (painting) and chores on our farm and everyday brings something new. Between taking care of our barnyard animals, we tend to have a large garden every year as well. Intermediate to experienced horse back riding skills are required (English or western discipline). We are always updating and upgrading the farm that has been in our family for over 100 years.
