We are looking for a homestead sitter to tend to our animals & keep our home & property well maintained & tidy. We are on a few acres & the property is very serene & peaceful. We have a large outdoor space with an open air swimming pool.
We do not have a certified organic farm BUT we have a large garden area where we have grown various vegetables using organic practices as we know them to be. Some of these vegetables have included, but are not limited to, cabbage, squash, peppers, pumpkins, kale, spinach, lettuce, various herbs, carrots, onions, & tomatoes.
The animals consist of 5 mini goats (they are fed hay in the morning & grain in the late afternoon), 6 chickens (their feeder is refilled on average every 4 days), 2 rabbits (their water & grain is replenished approximately every 4 days), 2 guinea pigs (their food & water are replenished every 2 days), 2 cats (their food is replenished on average every 5 days), and 2 dogs (they are fed twice a day).
We are located approximately 15 minutes to town where there are many options for shopping such as Walmart, Target, Publix, Dollar General & Family Dollar. There is no public transportation system that accesses our property. We own only one vehicle & normally it's our mode of transportation when we leave home therefore we will not be leaving transportation behind for our sitter.
Some of the nearby entertainment includes Weeki Wachee Springs, Chassahowitzka River, Withlacoochee River, Withlacoochee Trail, Homosassa Springs, Three Sisters Springs, Rainbow River, Pine Island Beach, Busch Gardens (approximately 45 minute drive), Disney (approximately 90 minute drive), & the list goes on and on. We are happy to provide more details. Where we are located makes it abundantly clear that there's more to Florida than beaches & Disney. Those things are great, but when you see what else Florida has to offer you are going to be blown away!
