We are small family sheep farm on a steep hill in Central Vermont. We have pasture raised Icelandic Sheep as well as horses, ducks, chickens and a busy household with a teenager, 4 housemates, my grown daughter, and my granddaughter! (and dogs and cats!).
Most of the care of our house and animals is done by me - Jill - so I am often in need of extra hands.
We have one room available in our house with use of shared bathrooms. We generally eat breakfast and dinner together, and we will provide you with food to make the rest of your meals.
We can accommodate a couple or a small family if you are willing to share a room (it is a small room and only has one bed, but we can also set up a "cot" if necessary). We cannot, unfortunately, accommodate dogs since one of my dogs is very bossy :)
No smoking or drug use is allowed in our house. Drinking must be on your own time. We may have an occasional glass of wine with dinner, however.
We raise our own meat (and much of our own milk, eggs, and veggies), so we are not a vegetarian household. However, we can easily accommodate you if you are.
Central Vermont is very beautiful, but mostly rural. The only public transportation is a commuter bus service which stops about 2 miles from our house. It will not take you into Richmond village - you will need to walk, bike or drive for that - but it will take you to Burlington or Montpelier (Vermont's capital) on weekdays. It does not run on weekends. There is usually someone going to and from our house with whom you can get a ride, however.
There is a large array of tasks around the house and farm that we could use some help with and guests are free to choose which of those tasks they would like to help with or learn how to do.

We have been hosting Workawayers since 2016, and we also have online rental guests - we love sharing our life with visitors! You will learn all about living on a sustainable, humane, sheep farm and get to visit beautiful Vermont!
The help would be for about 4 hours a day.
Would welcome extra hands to help with a few tasks around our house and farm. Tasks vary with the season, but may include stacking wood, fixing fences, cooking, cleaning, or other help around the house and property.
Private room and meals provided. Shared bathroom.
We are in the mountains of central Vermont, but only a short (15 minute) drive to Burlington - Vermont's largest city - where there are lots of fun tourist attractions right on Lake Champlain. We are very close to the Long Trail, and some great hiking and biking in summer, and skiing in winter.
