Housing/Utilities included with Farm Worker Position
Marfa Maid Dairy is looking for an individual to live and work on our farm/ goat dairy. We are an artisan goat cheese facility located 2 miles from the center of Marfa, Texas
The person in this position will be part of the milking and animal care team of our dairy. Responsibilities include a schedule of milking the goats, feeding the animals, maintenance of their facility and any related work to support their care. This schedule will vary some from season to season.
The first 10 hours (@$12 an hour) of the weekly schedule goes in trade for housing and utilities. If additional hours are required the worker will be paid initially at that hourly rate. The housing is a small but nicely appointed 60’s metal railroad trailer with a bedroom area, kitchen and bath. Total square footage is approximately 300 square feet. The trailer has a great view of the Davis Mountains with a covered patio attached.
This position will be year round if we find the right person. You must have a sincere interest in the job and a love of animals. Dairy work is routine and we need someone who can commit to being reliable. There could be possible time for other part time work outside of our farm but we expect our work would come first. Expansion of hours and a pay raise is possible after some time on the job. The person needs to be healthy and comfortable working outside in different conditions. You must have your own transportation.
