Hello we are a Icelandic horse breeding farm located in Oregon state. We have a 51 acre farm and manage a herd of around 20 horses. These horses are mostly young horses and retired horses. We do have a couple of riding horses for an experienced rider but most of the horses are not rideable. My wife, Jen, is from England and has been living in the states since 1983. I am a California native. Your job on the farm would be tending to our animals; the 5 cows, 4 sheep, the chickens, ducks and horses. There are also maintenance type jobs such as checking the perimeter fence line, watering trees and watering and weeding the garden. Mostly the work is at the beginning and end of the day and it leaves the middle of the day for adventures or remote work or learning.
We are specifically looking for someone who can take care of our farm for us while we travel periodically. We need someone who feels they can hold the responsibility of the animals and can think through emergency situations (like the animals getting out of a field or a water pipe breaking).

I believe travelers will learn a lot about the life of a small farmer in the United States. We have access close-by to a lot of recreation such as skiing, kayaking, hiking, climbing and swimming.

What we would expect from a volunteer is mainly help with the feeding and cleaning the horses and the other animals. We would like help with the maintenance of the garden, maintaining fence lines and possibly the rehabilitation of older buildings on the property.

We can provide bicycles and kayaks with all of the appropriate gear during the summer time. We have lots of hiking with plenty of waterfalls to check out. We are close to Eugene, Portland and the Oregon Coast. There is so much recreation; fishing, hiking, waterfalls, kayaking, bike trails, and camping. During the winter we have a lot of cross country skiing opportunities along with snowshoeing and downhill skiing or snowboarding.
