  • New Farm Manager

    Looking for responsible Farm Manager to perform and oversee daily operations at large P.R.E. breeding and sales facility. Herd management and care. Facility maintenance and upkeep. Delegate and oversea chores.

We are looking for a responsible person to assist with caring for our 3 children (ages 7, 4 and 3) and maintaining our horses/farm. If the individual has adequate equine experience and interest, their time would be split between caring for the children, caring for the horses/riding, and farm maintenance/house work. We are relatively flexible and have historically tailored the position to the strengths of our au pair. Successful applicants would be able to work independently with the horses (exercising, grooming, feeding, cleaning) and within the home. The children attend school/preschool, sports and music and are not typically left in the care of the au pair on days that we are at work (we have other arrangements at this time). We have formed enduring friendships with our prior au pairs and so will only consider individuals who we feel share our values and interests. We strive to ensure that this position is mutually beneficial to the au pair and our family! Start and finish dates are flexible.
