Farm and Pet Sitting Services
Looking for a break from farm life and or need help with the pets daily, while on vacation or in times of need? We are here for you. Hello, my name is Jessica Johnston. I am the owner of this business and I am a Farmer and Pet Owner (30+ years) that understands the need to get away but not sure who to trust with my property or animals. I spent 25 years in the Health and Wellness industry and decided to pursue my passion for the land and the wellness of animals. I've spent over two years learning about and handling livestock and horses. I've given time to helping others with their farms including but not limited to horses, pigs, goats, chickens, cows, cats and dogs. I am a graduate of the South Carolina New and Beginner Farmer Program (@SCNBFP) through Clemson University and have attended trainings and certifications through Clemson University or their extension services for a Master in Equine Management, Small Ruminant Care including certification in FAMACHA and more. I rescued my pets and have experience with senior dogs and dogs with chronic illness.
