About Honey Hill Farm

Honey Hill Farm provides quality animal attractions for event in Kentucky and Ohio. Read more about our family and what we do on our About Us page.



Llamas and goats and ducks, oh my!

We all know that petting zoos are awesome. What you may not know is that they are a lot of work!

We are looking for reliable and enthusiastic animal lovers to take care of our pets while they are at events. This position includes petting, hugging, brushing and loving a variety of animals. But it also means scooping manure, interacting with the public, maintaining a safe and happy environment for the animals and event attendees.

Event Assistants meet our team at a variety of events all over our service area, including birthday parties, festivals and school “farm days.”

Previous experience working with livestock is preferred, but we will provide training to anyone willing to work hard and get their hands dirty.



Event Assistants work extremely flexible hours and never have to commit to a set schedule. When we have events that require an assistant, our event coordinator will reach out to you and offer you the job. You are free to accept or decline it at that time.

Some EA’s work 3-4 times per week, while others may only work a couple of times a month. Because our needs vary greatly from month to month, we do not recommend that you rely on this job as your only source of income. This is an excellent job for students, teachers and anyone seeking part-time, gig based employment.

Event Assistants are paid for their work every week.



We are looking for the best! Our image is extremely important to us. All Honey Hill Farm team-members must be clean-cut, enthusiastic, competent, extremely reliable, and able to pass a background check.

Other requirements include:

  • Must be at least 18 years old
  • A love of animals and people
  • The ability to communicate your availability clearly, keep us up to date as it changes, and a desire to work fairly regularly.
  • The ability to be on time and ready to give 100% everyday
  • Previous experience with livestock or equines, or a willingness to jump in and learn quickly
  • Willingness to follow instructions carefully and work in a team environment or alone
  • A friendly and outgoing disposition
  • Excellent judgement and the ability to adapt to different circumstances quickly
  • The ability to work in extreme temperatures (hot and cold)
  • The ability to lift at least 40 lbs.
  • A commitment to quality customer service and animal care
  • Willingness to adhere to Honey Hill Farm’s requirements for attire and conduct
