Hi helpers,

We live on a 200+ acre farm in beautiful Aberdeenshire and looking for 1 or 2 helpers to help with work on and around the farm. The farm has pigs and cattle and we grow barley & wheat.
Our family at home consists of Philip & Gill in early 50s, and daughter, Laura 24, who's just returned from a year in Australia and recommended HelpX to us after her great experiences. We also have two sons, one (26) working in London, and the other (28) who lives nearby. There are lots of castles, hills, lochs around - great area for you to explore. We would be delighted to show you around the local area and meet our friends/family and experience the real Scotland!

Working hours and days will be flexible, roughly 4 hrs a day/ 5 days a week and may include:
Basic joinery/carpentry
Tractor work (if you have a licence)
Farm maintenance

Your own vehicle is required as it's a 10 minute drive to the nearest large town, Inverurie, and 40 minutes to the nearest city, Aberdeen. From Aberdeen the larger cities of Inverness, Edinburgh & Glasgow are a few hours drive.

Please get in touch by email if this sounds like an experience you'd enjoy, thanks!
