The going rate for a Ranch Hand is 100 Simoleons plus $12 per hour, similar to standard Repair Services. You can expect the employee to take care of chores from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., but you can send them home early.

Aside from the phone method, players can hire a helper from the Community Board found in each neighborhood at Chestnut Ridge. You can also place the board at your home to access it quickly, along with other communal activities.
