We have a small private family ranch that is in need of a capable, hard-working, hospitable and extremely trustworthy caretaker couple who are able to help take care of many aspects of life here in the mountains with little supervision. This a part-time residence for the owners, so you will be at the property alone many times.

Large and small animal care and attention to detail on their health and wellness.
- Grounds-keeping and general care-taking
- Repairs of equipment as needed.
- General handyman work as things need repaired.

Qualified applicants will have experience with animals (livestock and pets), grounds-keeping, care-taking, snowy winters, and familiar with mechanical issues. Additionally, we are looking for people who are polite, clean-cut, do not get drunk, smoke or do drugs of any sort. There is a great opportunity for a long term position if you thrive in this environment.
We would like three professional references (if available) during the interview process. The position includes a private bedroom/bathroom with internet. You are welcome to eat with the family when they are there, but otherwise you will provide your own groceries. Requires valid drivers licenses. Background check and drug testing possible.
