I am seeking a local(ish) farm management position which would accommodate my residence, including my small herd of dairy goats. Ideally, I would be able to set up a small farm store. I have experience with horses, goats, poultry, and dogs, as well as tractors and other farm equipment. I am a mature, responsible, strong, trustworthy person; you can trust me with your farm.
