We are seeking a housesitter to sit our farm for a period of time. We will provide all the training you will need before the owner leaves. Currently our needs are to feed and water our small (15) flock of sheep, our chickens, and our dog. The farm is a lovely place and a wonderful change of pace.
NOTE: When the owner is not away from the farm, we also have a helper program where volunteers help out with chores on the farm in exchange for room AND board. The time frames are open and we usually have at least one opening available. This is a nice opportunity for those trying to fill a gap in their housecarer assignments.
Our small farm of 230 acres is set in a beautiful section of western Pennsylvania with rolling hills, vast forests, and the large Mahoning Creek nearby. Over 40 years we have built the farm to provide a substainable lifestyle, but still have necessary modern convienences, like WiFi. We actively maintain a large vegetable garden and a small orchard, as well as raise organic, free-range lamb. Currently, a flock of sheep, free range chickens, and a dog share the farm with us. For many years, we have participated in a helper program where we have helpers from over the world come and help on the farm, in exchange for room and board. Consequently, we are very use to dealing with those new to farm life. The farm is a very peaceful, yet active place. Also, we are just a little over an hour from Pittsburgh.
