Vacation Checklist for the Small Farm Owner

As professional pet sitters who often help clients who own farms, we have been there and done that!

However it's always appreciated when farm owners leave us a checklist or list of instructions to reference while they are away. Of course we go over all of the details before their departure, but having a checklist to reference can be mutually-beneficial. Plus, it can help give owners peace of mind so why not!

On this blog article from 'New to Farm Life' she talks about some things to consider getting ready before taking a lengthy vacation. For example, don't forget to pay you electrical bill if it will fall upon the time you are away. You don't want the lights getting shut off on your farm sitter!
