We are a farm animal sanctuary located on a 13 acre property on the beautiful Hamakua coast in Laupahoehoe, Big Island Hawaii.

We are offering full work trade accommodations (no rent/no pay) for the right property caretaker/sanctuary manager. After a two week trial we hope to secure a one year commitment, with the potential for this to be a long-term arrangement for the right person to join our team and home indefinitely. This is our private property so we work here every day too, and we have wonderful volunteers (usually travelers from around the world) who stay onsite for extended periods and help with the daily animal care and many chores. But we have grown to the point where we could really use the consistency and skilled support of a long-term property caretaker/manager.

We are currently building additional accommodations on the property, and would love help to finish these out to ensure everyone has comfortable living spaces. Immediately we could offer a space in the shared volunteer yurt (bunk-house), a private tent, or we could discuss possible alternatives and will do our best to offer a desirable living space for the right candidate. We are looking for someone who loves animals, is experienced managing landscaping and construction projects/fence maintenance, and is comfortable taking a lead role to ensure everything runs well day to day. There is plenty of space to create edible gardens and we have a fruit tree planting project in the works, and have land to work with for other creative ideas and additional living spaces (as well as storage and a special needs animal barn to be built). We do not allow any smoking, drugs, or excessive drinking, and no animal products onsite out of respect for our rescued dairy cows, pigs, chickens, goats, etc.

To apply, forward bio & resume to our email address.
