Hey There, Farmhand
You don’t have to be an expert to do farm work!
Or at least we hope you don’t…
Come play farmer for a day!
We also pay farmsitters to stay on the property and take care of the animals while we’re away. Let us know if you’re interested using the same form!
Daily/Weekly Farm Chores
Feeding and watering
Brushing and playing
Shoveling manure (actually more fun than it sounds)
Electric fence setup/teardown
Starting and transplanting seedlings
Harvesting (large scale harvests below)
Mowing the lawn (riding mower)
Pressure washing stuff
Exciting projects that don’t happen all the time. For example:
New infrastructure like the chicken manor or the goat barn
Big harvests like the artichokes or the orchard
Big cooking projects like jams and ciders
