I'm looking for a place to live and work. I am currently assisting a farmer but the farm sold and they are getting rid of all employees. I'm a fast learner and love working outside. I've worked with horses, on tractors, and have experience gardening.

Experience description:

I have worked on a farm since I was 14 years old. I'm currently working on a farm but they sold it and getting rid of all employees. I am good with horses and gardening. Can learn any other skills required. I know how to drive a tractor, weed wack, mow lawns, power wash  and anything else I can learn quickly. I don't mind getting my hands dirty or doing necessary research to make things happen.
