To look after a 20+ acre country property in Connecticut. This is very much a hands-on position for someone who loves the land and doesn’t mind, well, relishes in fact, getting those hands dirty…
There are animals e.g. horses, chickens, a few cows, that need looking after, some trees including fruit trees, and a garden. Think Gertrude Jekyll.
Trees and flowers don’t plant themselves. You could argue that they do, of course, but this property is better kept than nature left to itself and entropy.
Have proven experience of repair work and maintenance. Be able to use farm vehicles, and that will include winter snow plowing equipment.
Be able to supervise outside contractors e.g. landscapers, fence builders. Be good with budgets and project planning.
This is a position for someone who loves the outdoors, who has the experience of dealing with high-net-worth owners, who can listen to their needs, and communicate both issues and achievements to them.
They are a private family and value their privacy – confidentiality and discretion are a given.
