Caretaker Seeks Assistance/Help With Farm/Animals, Clatskanie area, Columbia County, Oregon

Description

I am the caretaker for this recently purchased property and am looking for assistance, particularly with caring for animals and plants on a daily basis.  I am also seeking help with ongoing projects around the farm to create the self-sufficient lifestyle vision of the owner.

The owner is a semi-retired holistic physician. The goal of the owner is to be on the property 20-25 days per month until they can holistically farm full-time with-in the next 5-7 years.

There are plenty of possibilities and space for someone to fulfill their own vision while helping with the animals, plants and projects around the farm. There are a small assortment of farm animals and livestock to make this a perfect place to embrace back to basics living.

Living arrangements can be worked out if we can work out the rest. Ideal person would have own RV or Tiny House for living on the farm.  Fresh eggs from free range pastured hens and delicious goat milk comes with the job!

A semi-retired or retired person would fit in well as there is fun and adventure to be had every day.  Working remotely from home might consider this a great environment too. It would not be crucial to live on the farm as long as you are here for morning and evening chores.  Part time could be considered if you are currently employed.
