URGENT vacancy for clearance work. Some logging,general tidying up of land and pond clearance.

Turned lots of people way due to being full then just been let down.

Beautiful surroundings in the foothills of Snowdonia in an area called Hiraethog (The hills of great longing). We're remote though and the work can be hard at times.
We offer guest accommodation at our farm. The land is used to grow food for the house and volunteers eat the same food as the guests, which is of exceptional quality. We keep horses, a few Welsh black cattle, Black Welsh mountain sheep,Saddleback pigs, geese, chickens,an owl, a buzzard, tortoises, several dogs and cats plus whatever else I've forgotten. Accommodation out of peak season is sometimes very high standard rooms in the house as used for guests unless taken then as per peak season. In the peak season (May-September) volunteers have more basic facilities of a bedroom in a coverted stone outbuilding with shower and toilet facilities in the main house.
The work varies according to season and is sometimes quite hard such as pulling ragwort or clearing brash. Other times it is general farm work. We like volunteers with initiative who can muck in and help with whatever needs doing. The more cheerful the better!
Hours are usually 5-6 per day with a weekly day off but that is not set. Some days are easy and shorter others might be longer if needs must. We try to be flexible.
Volunteers with special requirements or dietary needs should explain those clearly when contacting us please.
We are happy to take couples out of peak season only but can take small groups of friends subject to vacancies, usually only in winter. We do not accept children under 16.
