It is a landscape-lovers paradise, and a zen-like agricultural wonderland. We have horses, donkeys, goats and birds – all with individual personalities who are definitely “part of the team” as well. We have fun at work, and we work hard so we can have fun. If the thought of seeing freshly mowed stripes on the lawn excites you, this is a role you should apply for! Regular performance reviews, a dedication to open communication and paid time off, even in your first year. This position is paid hourly, with a starting rate of $10/hour.
