  • Help


    We are a couple looking for help around our property. We have horses, goats, chickens, ducks, peacocks, dogs, cats, and tortoises. We rescue just about any animal needing help. We always have projects around the place like building pens, rain barrel project, basic yard work, painting, gardening, help with the animals, splitting firewood, garden bench restoration,etc. We like to do recycling/art projects in the garden. Spring is kidding season, so we will have lots of baby goats that need love, socializing, bottle feeding. We raise ducks for eggs, goats for milk and even raise our own fish. We grown our own herbs and veggies as the season allows. We try to be as organic, natural and eco-friendly as possible. You can use our newer 2018, 1 bed ,19' travel trailer, in exchange for help around the place. We are LGBT friendly here. We may also have space for your camper van or rv to park instead of using our trailer. Sorry we can not accommodate your personal pets or smokers. We also do not have internet access at the house. But Verizon cell phone data, hot spot, texting and calls work just fine. We are nestled in a valley so we don't have any options. It's a 3 mile drive to get internet service and town is full of free wi-fi options. We usually go to Starbucks for it, or the library has free computers to use if you need.
    We do not need help with housework or cooking, nor do we have children to look after. Our kids are grown and out of the house. After reading all this and you are still interested in, please send us an e-mail. We look forward to hearing from you!
