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.”




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.”

Shannon W.
Neighborhood: Platte Park/DU area
“Own four chickens and would love to help out others!”
