This opportunity is ideal for an individual who would like to travel and live in the Caribbean at a beautiful, mountain top horse ranch. We train horses in Liberty, so anyone who loves horses is encouraged to apply. Our property consists of many organic gardens and tropical fruit trees, medicinals and ornamentals.
Beaches are just 20 minutes away and many local attractions are nearby.
This is not a paid position but an exchange. Hours will be part-time, 5 hours per day M-F only. Weekends always off.
Bee keeper must be willing to do other small tasks in between working with the bee's. This includes keeping the bee yard and surrounding gardens clean, fence mending in the pastures, painting and general farm help when needed.
