The farmer leads farm tours & educational talks, helps process our fiber, teaches fiber workshops, feeds and cares for the animals, does daily barn cleaning chores, cares for the medical needs of the animals, and maintains the gardens, …all while being friendly and welcoming to our resort guests.Farmers need to be outgoing, and willing to engage with guests. The farmer meets a large percentage of our guests on a daily basis.
