Looking for help with our family farm sheep, cattle, field work and yard maintenance. You can also see how meat is processed in our meat packing plant onsite as we butcher, cut and make all types of sausages in our plant on our farm. There are always animals to feed, winter or summer. We calve our cows in April and May and we lamb out our ewes in May and June. We have many farm cats and dogs as well that love any extra attention they can get.
You will sleep in our house with your own bedroom and bathroom. You will eat meals with us as well, and if you like to cook you can help with meal preparation, as well as house cleaning.
