Hey, I hear you. I grew up on a farm. I’ve worked on other people’s farms. My mom has run a boarding kennel since I was 3 (that means nearly 4 decades, for the record). I’ve been a farm sitter, a pet sitter, and an emergency back-up when things went wrong. And while I don’t currently have a “big acre real farm”, we have enough animals that it’s definitely hard to just…. walk away, get a day or a weekend away – to attend a workshop, visit family, or heaven forbid, go on a vacation.
Over the years, I realized that one of the biggest things I struggled with both as a farm sitter and when having someone else look after things so I could leave was a set of clear, well-defined, comprehensive instructions. (The part about not being able to find someone reliable is too often a smokescreen: there are reliable people, and you find them by showing them you have clear, organized instructions to guide them).
I created the Fillable Farmsitter Manual with two types of people in mind:
This is not for you if:
What is it?
The Fillable Farm Sitter Manual is simply a well-formatted Google Doc. When you buy, you get the link, make yourself a copy, and dive in.
Ready to go… somewhere, away, for a weekend or a week or more?
Are you ready to leave, with your peace of mind intact knowing that things are clearly laid out, all the information is available to your “person in charge” (or to you, if you’re the one sitting), and they’ll be fully accountable because you took the time to make things crystal clear?
Then you’ll want this template in your toolkit.
An easy-to-use, fillable template to create a manual for any farmsitter (or petsitter) to refer to. Simply add images and details, including:
Go on holiday, take a family trip, leave for a weekend or a month, while resting assured that you've left a complete and detailed set of instructions for those in charge of your loved ones - whether they're four-legged, feathered, or green.
