Small Farm Caretaker(s) 

Come live in a historic Lockhouse (build in 1828) along the Lackawaxen River, one of the premier fly-fishing rivers in the Northeastern United States.  We have 250 acres (mostly forested) in the Pocono Mountains and are looking for a caretaker (individual or couple) to live and work on our property in exchange for housing.  

This job is ideal for a person or couple that work from home, have another job in the area, or are retired/semi-retired. Hours vary according to the season. The spring, summer and autumn months are much busier with increased general maintenance of the property, while the winter months are much slower. 

Responsibilities include, but are not limited to:

  • Caring for animals (beef cows, donkey, chickens, cats)
  • Landscaping (weed whacking, weeding, pruning, mowing, leaf removal, etc)
  • Mowing pastures
  • Housekeeping
  • Gardening (vegetable)
  • Splitting and stacking wood
  • Snow removal (plowing)
  • Maintenance of private residence and guest houses

If you are not highly experienced in all of the job duties but are handy and are willing and open to learn, you will be considered for the position.

Caretakers must have own transportation, be non-smokers, be physically fit (occasionally lift and/or move up to 50 pounds without assistance), have a strong work ethic, and be willing to make a long-term commitment. 

Background and reference checks will be done on all candidate prior to hire.
