About Us

Hello!

 

Welcome to High Country Farm Sitting Services. My name is Zoe, and I am a graduate of Appalachian State University, holding a Bachelor of Science in Sustainable Development with a concentration in Agroecology and Sustainable Agriculture. I am very happy to call the High Country of North Carolina my home. I have 10+ years of horse experience, and have worked at a variety of farms, stables and greenhouses throughout the years. I have also worked with, cared for, and owned a variety of animals, and have farming, gardening, farm-sitting and care-taking experience. My farm sitting service is fully insured and bonded through Pet Sitters International's recommended insurance company, Business Insurer of the Carolinas. I worked as a licensed  horseback riding instructor through Blessings Farm Inc., for several years, and have also worked as an insured horseback riding instructor through NC Horse Council for the last 2 years. I have experience owning and caring for dogs and puppies of various breeds and sizes, cats and kittens, guinea pigs, hamsters, rabbits, snakes and frogs, and working on farms caring for horses (standards, drafts and minis), ponies, donkeys, cows, pigs, sheep, goats, alpacas, chickens, ducks, doves, fish, and dogs of all breeds and sizes, including livestock guardian dogs.

 

As a sustainable agriculture graduate, farm employee, and hopeful future farmer,  I realize that farming is hard work and that it is tough for farmers to ever get away, especially if they have livestock. Having cared for and owned a variety of animals, I also realize how nerve-racking it can be to leave them, or your farm,  in someone else’s care. High Country Farm Sitting Services wants to make it easier for you to get away for a much needed rest or vacation while feeling at peace leaving your farm in our care. It is my promise that each farm receives the very best of my attention, commitment, hard work, responsibility and dedication to doing things right. I look forward to meeting you in the future and enjoying the opportunity to care for your farm!
