    There is always work to be done: fencing, building, tending to plants and animals or just weed-whacking.

    If you have experience with a chainsaw that would be great as we have quite a few dead branches that need to be cut; however, there are other projects on the property that do not involve any particular skill other than being willing to get dirty and work outside.

    There is a grocery store within a few miles of our house. You will need to buy and cook your own food.
