    Hi : )!

    Im searching a single woman sitter and great animal lover for my two cuddly goats when im working or when im out of the house. im looking for an alternative person who knows about ecoconcious living.

    Im 45 years old, no smoker, vegetarian - vegan, animal and naturelover, loving yoga, meditation & rawfood.
    Im an artist (painting flowers), studying work and organizational psychologie and moment project manager for special educational needs programs and childs psychology. I like alternativ, sustainable and eco-conscious living in house and garden.

    Responsibilities & Pets
    • You would like to stay one month or longer - three month is best to get into relation with the goats.
    • You are an alternativ person who has experience with (farm)animals and work in the stable or you are ready to learn it.
    • You love nature and animals and have a feeling for them.
    • Spending time with the goats and built up a relation with them makes you happy : ).
    • You are trustworthy, dependable , tidy and mindful.

    My traditinonal farmhouse from 1756 (!) is amazing located in the farmercenter of the mountaintown Interlaken / Matten with view to the mountains. All the farmhouse is renovated in organic style.
    You are very near from foodshops, restaurants (2 minutes walk) and you have a free bus access (with a tourist card which i can give you) so you can get to the city center, train station, ect. within 6 minutes.
    In the house you have a fast internet with cable but no wifi acess.

    You look mainly after the goats; that means in the morning give them hay, fresh water, clean the fence and the stable. Looking during the day after them when im not there and in the late afternoon bring them in the stable. Best is somebody who like to pet and play with the goats : )!

    The goats are very curios and sometimes cheeky (but never vicious). They are both very lovely, Florian, the black goat, likes to play all the time, like to sit next to you outside on the bench, while you are reading a book and follow you every step : ).

    To Interlaken you get with the train in two hours from Basel, Zürich oder Genf. The farmhouse you reach very easy from the train station Interlaken OST with the bus 104 Matten - the busstation next to my house is "Brunnen Haus".

    In Interlaken you reach within short time the lakes and the station where the trains bring you up to the mountains, ski- and hiking resorts.
