Due to change of plan from our currewnt helper who has been with us for nearly 2 months we have an immediate vacancy.
A smallholding with rare breed pigs, chickens,ducks, geese and approx .75 hectares land for vegetables mainly needing clearing still. We also have pedigree welsh mountain badger faced sheep.
Varying seasonal opportunities. Mainly in vegetable production and animal feeding and care.Just starting retail side so help will be needed at farmers markets and on direct deliveries Several construction type jobs also need to be undertaken, currently labouring work to be done assisting construction of concrete pads in pig pens and buildings. Lots of basic ground preparation Accommodation will normally be in a caravan with access to all house facilities I work the holding full time while Cary my wife gives help where she can, work commitments allowing, our grand daughter Amber now lives with us. We temporarily have three families living together under the same roof so are a little disorganised in the house. We are situated on the Surrey Cycleway and Sussex border path, on the edge of the Surrey Hills area of outstanding natural beauty. Public transport buses about 1.25 miles, trains 3.5 miles You will be offered the opportunity to join us on social trips and outings,when we have spare seats available.The 3 dogs are walked away from the holding in the surrounding countryside for an hour or more each day and you would be welcome to join us. As 3 miles from a village and 8 miles from a town 3 bicycles are provided. On a Monday morning I teach gardening at the Mary Frances Trust and in the afternoon run the Leatherhead group of Conquest Art (see websites) so far volunteers have joined me. Looking for volunteers now, for June and September onwards, minimum 2 week stay e mail contact preferred for new enquiries. Please advise in advance if vegetarian or need any other special diet and be aware that one of your duties may involve loading pigs to go on last journey. Note we do not offer 5 star, but basic accommodation, you will be sleeping in a caravan, there is one bathroom in the house shared by all.With 9 permanent residents the house can be messy at times
