Working at Goat House Farm

Goat House Farm has one 50/30amp or 110 site exchange position open for a couple or singles. Situated in a rural area of Tallahassee on Lake Talquin, we are surrounded by the beautiful Lake Talquin State Forest. Great fishing and hiking trails and beautiful sunsets. We have over 30 goats, one hog, ducks, and chickens.

Work is twenty hours a week. You will be responsible for tracking your time (we lose track of it a lot around here). Work includes feeding goats, assisting with milking, cleaning out stable, fence building and repair, weeding and harvesting, general repair work, and basic farm chores. We also have occasional tent campers and one small cabin, so help cleaning when campers leave is also needed.

No experience needed, but a good attitude and a love of animals and the farm life is absolutely required. Must have an open mind and work well with others. We work hard to build a sense of community around here.

We provide water, wifi, laundry, kayaks, fresh eggs, and a share of the harvest (we don’t eat our animals though!).  We do not have sewer available – perfect opportunity for composting toilets, otherwise you will need to tote to our onsite septic. Gray water dumping is fine, but you must use environmentally friendly products.

No children, please, and dogs allowed only at the 110 right now. Vandwellers and tenters welcome. We have a bath house with a compost toilet and hot shower.
