The Write Couple
*We prefer free house-sits with wonderful animals or in beautiful places, where it feels like both parties are getting something worthwhile.
Have taken care of hobby farms and homesteads (chickens, goats, pigs, cows, donkeys), and currently help out with the Yale Farm in CT.
We're Jordan & Lucy, a writerly couple who live & teach in New York City. We've been using HouseSitters for the last four years and have really enjoyed all the people & pets we've gotten to meet!
In the past, we've taken care of goats, chickens, cats, dogs, pigs, cows, donkeys, and fish. Currently, we're looking for longer housesits that offer a good bit of solitude, wilderness, and/or loveable animals. We're planning to spend most of Sept 2023-Aug 2024 traveling & writing - so if you're looking for a housesitter during that time, please reach out!
Jordan is originally from North Carolina, and Lucy is from New York City. Jordan grew up with dogs and pigs; he has volunteered on farms across Thailand and managed a small farm in New Zealand. And Lucy grew up with cats, raised chickens, and spent a few years milking goats.
We live a pretty simple life. We don't have pets, don't smoke, and don't eat meat. We're both COVID-vaccinated & boosted. If we seem like a good fit, chances are we'd love to get to know you and your pets/farm/home. So send us a message!
