  • Description


    Our family consists of just the two of us, Mr. and Mrs., plus an adorable dog and one cat. We lead a simple life, but we enjoy the pleasures that life gives us: meals with family and friends, movies, gardening, etc ... During this time, we need help looking after our animals, namely the cattle, and we could use some help with the exterior maintenance of the property. Projects vary by season, but mostly light yard work.

    La famille se compose de monsieur et madame, nous menons une vie simple mais nous aimons qd même les plaisirs que la vie nous procure: petits repas en famille ou entre amis, cinéma, jardinage ,etc... A cette période, les bêtes sont dans les prés donc plus un travail de surveillance . et entretien extérieur de la propriété.

    We are looking for someone that can assist us in maintaining our household and farm. Work typically includes: basic household cleaning, feeding and helping take care of our cows, cleaning the barn when necessary, and other miscellaneous tasks.

    We are especially looking for someone who can operate a large farm tractor, but its not a deal breaker.
