We're a young couple with baby (1+ year old)
Animals: Goats, Sheep, Chicken
We have a large vegetable plot which due to the climatic conditions in our area needs to be well watered daily.
We try to live as self-sufficient as possible, grow and produce most of our food on our own land.
We're looking for a young single person, m or f (even though f might suit better*) to help with the farm duties and the baby/ household (*).
Would be great if the helper already has some basic knowledge e.g. in milking goats by hand, making cheese, gardening etc. but it's not a must!
possibly the helper could run the farm on his/ her own for some days to allow us to take a break from our routine but this would have to be discussed individually and highly depends on the helper and if he/ she feels able to do this...
-low key conditions on the farm
-very simple accommodation in an open straw-bale hut (no rain to be expected here in summer...)
-compost toilet and shower tbd soon
-traditional Portuguese toilet: dig hole with hoe at some hidden place ;-)
-limited electricity via solar panel
-bad/ no mobile coverage
>We can/ want to only accommodate a single person, preferably female due to household and baby chores
>we prefer a helper that could stay long(er) term, no 1 or 2 week stays requests please...
>we're vegetarians and eat mainly raw-foods, but don't worry, you won't starve ;-)
Nearly forgot: we speak german, portuguese, english, spanish and chinese.
Please contact if interested or if any questions are on your mind!
Please note: due to time reasons I can only answer inquiries from persons that seem to fit the place and situation. thanks for your appreciation!
