This is the blog post that announced the Livestock Sitter Resource List on 9/10/13. For the current, updated list, click here.

Note: The following list is a compilation of people who responded to a request for a livestock sitter. Inclusion on this list does not constitute an endorsement by Heirloom Gardens. Those wishing to hire a livestock sitter will need to vet candidates themselves and negotiate terms/payments for services. 

Denver and the Surrounding Communities

Experience as a livestock sitter for chickens and dwarf dairy goats (including milking)

Brooke L.
Neighborhood: Wheat Ridge
Owns chickens; experience milking goats; experience as a livestock sitter

Aiden W.
Neighborhood: Wheat Ridge
“I am responsible for feeding and watering our chickens and collecting eggs daily. I haven’t milked a goat but would be happy to learn and we would love the goat milk to make goat cheese. I have my own vehicle to get to any NW Denver family home.”

Jill P.
Neighborhood: Lower Highlands
“I don’t have any experience with livestock, but I’m considering looking into chickens someday. I also have a dog sitting business. I have family in the area that could cover for me if my vacations coincide with sitting dates.”

Grace J.
Neighborhood: Wheat Ridge
“Grew up on a farm in Northern Idaho. We had nanny goats, chickens, horses, dogs and cats. I am familiar with milking goats and collecting eggs. I would be very interested in doing this again for additional employment.”


Jill S.
Neighborhood: Golden (could do west Denver, Lakewood, Arvada, etc)
“I have had my goat dairy since 2008 so have extensive experience with dairy goats and have experience chicken-sitting as well.”


Camille B.
Neighborhood: Cherry Creek/Glendale
“I’m from the Caribbean Islands. Being around livestock is kind of natural to me. My grandfather was a farmer, though I grew up in the city. I’m into anything that’s natural and reconnecting with where food comes from.”
