  • Description

    Description

    Learn how to milk goats and help us with daily farm chores outside of Homer. Help needed mid May until October. We built our own farm and have goats, rabbits, chicken and a greenhouse. We also make cheese and grow oats. We do eat meat and live primarily from what we grow on our farm. Sundays are minimal chore days, only the milking and feeding of the animals. We attend church or relax and enjoy a day of rest.
