A CARAVAN AMONG STRAWBERRY FIELDS FOR A BIT OF HELP!

WHO ARE WE?
Our names are Andrew and Gill and we have been growers since the 70s. At the moment Andrew grows strawberries, runner beans, calabrese, cauliflowers and cabbage and we try to sell them locally as much as possible. I teach English on and off. Our daughter Natalie is working on the farm for the summer until she starts teaching again.

WHAT 'WORK' DO YOU DO?
We have staff to do most of the farm work but we would ask you to help for up to 10 hours a week

in the garden doing things like cutting the grass, strimming the hedge etc

and things in the house like window washing and vacuuming

WHEN DO YOU 'WORK'?
It could be morning or afternoon depending on which suits you best and we might even let you have a few strawberries!

WHERE IS IT?
The farm is in a small village called Lindsey right in the middle of the Suffolk countryside. It has a pub and the shops are a few minutes away by car. Hadleigh is the nearest small town and the old Roman town of Colchester takes 25 minutes to get to. Ipswich is the same.

YOUR ACCOMMODATION
Your caravan is in the fields near the strawberries and runner beans and has a double bed and singles too! It has running water, a stove to cook on and there is a toilet and shower block that is shared with others.

We are looking for anyone really- couples or singles- we'd be happy to meet you.

Just email Natalie without commitment if you want to know anything else.

We hope to see you soon!

Gill
