Hi everyone

Going on holidays from our farm has a while pile of problems for us....mostly who will look after our animals, but some are things like making sure the pipes don't burst in winter. However, here I am in Australia (8,000 miles from our farm)...so we managed to pull off a major holiday. So what are the options we have used to be able to do this:

Pet/farm sitters
Boarding animals with others
Using family and friends

Here are some notes on the options: http://www.almostafarmer.com/holidays-from-your-homestead/

All of these have pros and cons....but for us, its worth it so I can visit family and escape a little of the North American winter.

I hope these notes might help others.

Durras, Australia
