Hello. I am looking for a plot of land to lease near Bennington, Vermont (far southwest). I need a place to keep my three bred pygmy does, three angora rabbits, and a small flock of chickens; mostly Easter Egger hens, a Faverolle rooster and his two Faverolle ladies, three Maran hens. I am renting a Nigerian/pygmy buck for breeding, I would like to buy him if the owner is willing to sell but that is negotiable.
I am willing to work and/or pay a reasonable monthly rental fee.
I am a good cook, good organizer, a fast learner. I have spent almost seven years caring for my own livestock. If you are willing to accommodate my animals you will have access to free eggs and goats milk next spring, and eventually homemade goats cheese and soap. I am a novice spinner, and knit very basic items if you are interested in extra warm garments. I am an experienced professional dog trainer and groomer. I can be a big help with any dog related needs, I can also train non canine animals. I do not have much experience with large livestock however I am very good at dealing with animals of all kinds and happy to learn. I also have a few years experience in gardening and spent countless hours researching about gardening, I would be happy to help you maintain a vegetable garden.
I would prefer land with a water source, fenced or distant from the roads, 30 minutes from Bennington or with a place to sleep. I have a wonderful Bouvier dog, she will move to Vermont with me. She will only be on your land if you are offering a housing situation. Otherwise I will care for the animals commuting from my boyfriends home in Bennington, leaving her there during the day. I am not picky so if you think you have something for me please let me know! The most important thing is finding a home for my animals until I can afford land of my own. I will be ready to move in mid March, if you have a house/room for us my boyfriend will be ready to move by December 1st.
