Our historic property ( 1912 ) operates a Bed and Breakfast cottage and a small blueberry farm. Our blueberries were one of the first planted commercially in 1982.We are a small boutique blueberry farm. We have really enjoyed all our Helpers over the years.

Most work will be outside, helping with our bluebeery harvest and stuff that just needs to be done like cleaning cars etc. Help indoors really helps us get on with our work maybe general household chores on cold or wet days.
If you like to cook, perhaps you might like to cook a meal or too.

In return for your help, we provide full board and lodging so all meals and accommodation. You will have most afternoons to explore the regions and we ensure you get days off too.

Must like being outdoors.You need to like being outside. Please see our references.

We are interested in your special skills, we would like to make the most of your visit and in turn we may learn some from you!
