Small Hobby Farm in beautiful town near Atlanta needs a pet lover to come stay
We are looking for a conscientious, responsible, animal-loving person (or family) to care for our family home and hobby farm. Set on 7 acres with a garden, pond, and pasture we home 3 horses (one is a miniature), 1 miniature sheep, 3 dogs (all labs, all over the age of 2), 1 barn bunny, 1 egg-laying hen, two indoor birds, and an outdoor farm cat. Cat allergies are NOT a problem! Our home is a four bedroom, 2 1/2 bath, recently renovated home. Sleeps 7. Summer fun includes a large in-ground salt pool, fully stocked pond for fishing, and a golf cart to get around town in.
Our Home & Location
Peachtree City is located only 40 mins from the heart of Atlanta, GA. It is a beautiful town with 90+ miles of golf cart trails for running, biking and cruising town eco-friendly in our golf cart. We will provide our golf carts and bikes for use. The seven acres our farm sits on is located on the edge of town, with direct golf cart trail access, downtown being within cart distance to shop, eat, etc. We have 3 acres of pasture, an acre size pond stocked with bluegill and large mouth bass, and an in-ground salt water swimming pool. In spring, fall and winter, we enjoy our backyard fire pit and wood burning fireplace. There is a large garden that (seasonally) will need some regular watering, along with providing you fresh harvest while you stay. The most important thing to us is to find trustworthy, animal loving, conscientious people to care for our farm while we are away. A clean, safe, and inviting stay is a promise!
Responsibilities & Pets
Every animal on our property is a pet to us, so we are looking for someone who loves animals! Our dogs will need a walk or ball tossed each day. Barn animals need morning and evening chores done. Feeding, mucking and safely locking up at night is a must.. We ask for a careful eye with equine experience to keep an eye on the horses. Spring grass means a chance for colic.
