We have a small hobby farm that we’d like to turn into a working farm. We have space to park a tiny house, RV, trailer, tent, etc for someone interested in working in exchange for rent. We’d like approximately 30 hours of work a month in exchange for the space. We’d really prefer to find someone who has dairy experience. We currently have a small herd of dairy goats and are working on creating a small raw milk business, looking to move into cheesemaking down the road. There are also a couple of horses and a chicken flock on the property. Daily chores include feeding, watering, cleaning pens and stalls and milking the goats. These chores would be shared. On a weekly basis we’d be asking for morning or evening feedings a couple times a week, with a couple morning milkings. We’d also ask for the availability to care for the farm full time a few days a month. Pluses include: experience with horses, other gardening/farming experience, handyman/carpentry skills. Right now we only sell milk and eggs but are looking to revitalize an old orchard on the property, add berries, bees, tea bushes, herbs, lavender, garlic, potatoes…
