  • Description


    I own a mobile wood fired pizza catering company. Every Wednesday night from June through September, I pull the oven into my front yard and open it up to the public. I serve pizzas on a donation basis, and share the profits with worthy causes in the community. I live on wooded 20 acres in Northwest Wisconsin, near the St. Croix River. It is a beautiful, quiet location with ample wildlife. I have a home on the property, as well as a cabin, a commercial kitchen and a storage building.

    I have a large & lovable dog, who loves attention, so being comfortable with dogs is a must!

  • Help


    I am looking for help managing woodlands, landscaping, small building projects, food prep, maintenance, maybe even walking the dog!

    I can work tasks around available skills, but some projected tasks could include:
    Cutting / splitting firewood
    Clearing brush and making trails in the woods
    General landscaping, maintaining gardens, mowing
    Food prep and set up / serving for pizza nights
    Building a firewood shelter
    Building a deck
    Cleaning / organizing storage building (separating recycling, putting up shelving, etc.)
    Cleaning / organizing cabin
    Social media help

    One special note: if you are interested in food trucks, or would like to start your own, this would be a great opportunity for you! I can always use help, and any event you work, you will be paid $10 per hour plus tips! And you would have the opportunity to learn all the different aspects of running a food truck or catering business.

    The cabin is where helpers would stay - it has heat & electric, a nice sitting area, a small refrigerator, microwave and toaster oven, and an indoor portable toilet.
