*️*️*️*️*️*️ I am seriously looking for a farm sitter March 30 through April 8, 2020.
I have two horses (easy care), 2 laying hens (easy) and three dogs pretty darned easy. One of them is deaf and MAY be a bit barky until he gets to know you. Otherwise, they are EASY). *️*️*️*️*️*️*️
Here is my general intro: I have a small farm with a small cottage. I am looking for short term work-awayers with their own transportation. I am 12 miles from town, 5 miles to closest grocery store, so your own wheels makes it better for YOU.
The help would not be rigorous - - - mowing the pastures, painting fence, doing some light trail maintenance, for a few hours a day. Farm-sitting is also a distinct possibility as I am often away and need someone to look after the 3 dogs, 2 horses and 2 chickens. It is EASY and takes very little time, but conscientiousness is VERY IMPORTANT.
My ideal person would be handy, mobile, and interested in no more than a one week's stay.
ALSO - I have two tiny houses in the mountains of NC, near Brevard, and often need simple jobs done. Current project: moving some fairly large rocks from one location on the property to another, to create a fire ring. A hand truck would be provided and is all that is needed.
Help in the house
If they have their own wheels, Aiken is an amazing historic horse town. It is small and quaint with a vibrant downtown. Augusta is also nearby and is larger with quite alot of good night time music and a street scene.
Beekeepers are especially welcome! And carpentry!
English some french.
Farmsitter will have the master bedroom in my cozy, remodeled cottage. There is no television and no dishwasher - otherwise, the cottage has all the comforts. The farm is 8 acres and private and quiet and 12 miles from town.
Aiken is a lovely, smallish equestrian town. There are fantastic polo matches on Sundays that are free, horse shows, fox hunting. Hitchcock Woods is a beautiful equestrian/walker friendly forest with 60 miles of trails. Augusta is larger and has a bit more to offer. 15 minutes away. Atlanta is 3 hours away. Beaches are 3 hours away. Mountains are 3 hours away. My place is in a rural, peaceful setting. A good place for quiet and reflection.
