    *️*️*️*️*️*️ 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.

    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.

    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.
