Hello,

We have a 6 acre farm we do not currently live on. We currently drive to the farm each afternoon to do chores etc. which taker us about an hour each day on average. We are looking for an ongoing caretaker that would live on the property rent free in exchange for farm help/chores/building up of farm etc.

We currently have a few buildings up, a 20x10chicken house (20-25 chickens), 8x8 rabbit house (1 male, 6 females), 2 sheep, 3 geese. There is a 24x24 pole barn which is up and just needs the metal roofing put on. A partially built 20x10 greenhouse and a tool shed. The farm does have well water and electricity.

e have a small orchard with several fruit trees growing, pecan chestnut, pear, apple, mulberry, citrus, fig, blueberry, blackberry, plum and a few theories. The whole orchard is set with drip irrigation. we have also built several swale berms which we have planted with corn squash and beans.

We have a small mahindra tractor which helps tremendously with some of the heavier lifting. Farm is within short distance of several shops in Milton as well as Pace FL and a short car ride from Pensacola FL. There would be no pay associated with this so you might have to get some sort of part time work to supplement your income etc. You could either camp on the property, build a small shelter or a camper under the barn, again rent/cost free. The local famers market could be a source of income for what the farm produces, maybe a small CSA.

The ideal person would be honest, dependable, responsible and hard working as I am. You would be caretaker and we can build the farm up together to be a proper demonstration of permaculture principle and responsible land stewardship.

If you are interested please reach me here.

I hope to hear from you and good luck to all!

Omar

What is the name of the farm? Duties of this farm would entail? We understand to take care of animals, farming, repairing, building, creating, ways to enhance the land and ability to sustain life without much.

We have experience with the preservation of food for long term (canning,fermenting,dehydrating) and abilities to do so without much help from the outside world.

Our email is friendlyecoist@gmail.com.

Hello my name is Mercy Zelazo and I am extremely interested in working for your farm.

I have owned and ran my own farm for over 6 years. I had goats, chickens, ducks, turkeys, pigs, rabbits and even pigeons. I milked my goats twice daily and enjoyed caring for them.

I am very passionate about animals and have been my whole life. I have had the amazing opportunity of working in several different animal fields. From a veterinarian hospital to being enrolled in a zoological park program.
It is my dream, my life goal, to work with animals. They are the highlight of my life and I would be incomplete without them.
I know I would be a great asset to your farm. I am dedicated, hard working, and a fast learner. I am very caring, passionate, and trustworthy. I have learned an abundance from and about animals in my life and cannot wait to learn more.
I currently live in Delavan, WI but am looking to relocate. I know you won't be disappointed if you give me the opportunity to be part of your wonderful establishment.
I can send you a copy of my resume if you like. I appreciate your time and consideration. I hope to hear from you soon.
Thank you,
Mercy Zelazo
