Hola,

We moved to Spain in 2008, with our 2 young children.

We bought an abandoned organic fruit farm, which are we slowly recovering back to its former glory.

We have olives, almonds, citruses, avocados, mangoes, apples, pears, apricots, cherries......and vegetables.

We also have chickens, horses, dogs and cats.

We are interested in people coming to stay on our farm at all times of the year! Depending on the seasons, you could help us with a variety of jobs on our farm, from pruning, mulching, planting new trees, harvesting fruit etc.

You may also be able to help out around our house.

WE ARE CURRENTLY LOOKING FOR 2 PEOPLE TO STAY DURING THE EARLY PART OF AUGUST 2017 IN OUR LOVELY COTTAGES AND HELP WITH CUTTING THE SUCKERS FROM THE OLIVE TREES AND GENERAL TIDYING OF THE TERRACES.

WE ARE ALSO LOOKING FOR 4 PEOPLE TO HELP WITH THE OLIVE HARVEST FOR ABOUT 2 OR 3 WEEKS FROM MID NOVEMBER 2017. THE OLIVE HARVEST IS HARDWORK, BUT IT IS ALOT OF FUN. IT IS SO IMPORTANT TO PICK THE OLIVES QUICKLY, WHETHER RAIN OR SHINE, AND TRANSPORT THEM TO THE MILL FOR PRESSING AS SOON AS POSSIBLE, AS THIS IMPROVES THE QUALITY AND FLAVOUR OF THE OIL.

THE COTTAGES HAVE FULL SELF CATERING FACILITIES AND WE ARE HAPPY TO PROVIDE HELPERS WITH FOOD AND DRINK SO THAT THEY CAN LOOK AFTER THEMSELVES AT WEEKENDS. WE WILL ALL EAT TOGETHER DURING THE WEEK.

IF YOU ARE INTERESTED, PLEASE LET US KNOW.......

We have 2 lovely properties on our farm where you can stay - the Cottage or the Stable. These have been renovated to a high standard, with large walk in rain showers, kitchens and a private swimming pool. All situated on a quite a secluded part of the farm.

We are 30 minutes from Malaga and our local village (Almogia) is 2 minutes away. Our area is beautiful and a wonderful taste of rural Andalusia. El Torcal is a stunning area of outstanding natural beauty and is only a short drive away.......

If you are interested, do look at our website and send us an email.....

Charles and Suzie
