We are looking for a caretakers from May through July and/or August through October on our 34 acre farmstead.  We have a very  small garden & half dozen fruit trees & grapes  planted. The lawn around the bunkhouse will need mowing. We hope to have guinea fowl, possibly a few chickens & a few grazers before we leave for the summer.

Our peaceful "farm" has a  comfortable, restored 1980's mobile home for your use. Lake Ouachita, with 1000 miles of shoreline and extensive trails are  within a 20 minute drive. The Caddo River is just two miles away. Montgomery County is 85% national forest, with miles of back roads for biking & wandering.

We have two vintage campers that will be air bnb "glampers" when we get a bath house built. We'll see how much we can accomplish this spring... A caretaker who arrived by April could work on the bath house & chicken coop for pay. It is also possible to work for pay to manage the two glampers.  Applicants  need to be self-sustaining, as it's an hour's drive to Hot Springs & not a feasible commute for work. Experience as handy man or woman,  gardening and animal care are high priorities. Our property is strictly non-smoking.

John & I are (over the years) turning our Honey Bee Haven into a regenerative, sustainable farmstead to share with other nomads.
