We have space for one person/ couple/ two friends between now and 6th August if anyone would like to spend time with us and our animals.

We breed alpacas, chickens and ducks. We also design and build poultry houses here in the Blackdown Hills of Devon.

We are looking for an average of 28 hours help a week to be arranged to in a mutually convenient way. For example, four hours a day or eight hours for a few days followed by a few days off. As well as regular animal care and husbandry and cleaning out of chicken houses (which will include moving heavy wheelbarrows)some help will also be required with day-to-day upkeep of the farm. Please understand heavy manual labour is involved. Experience of animal handling would be preferable but not essential. What is important is someone who is prepared to "get stuck in"

You will have free use of the house for kitchen, bathroom etc. and staying in a large six man tent with plenty of storage and table and chairs. The tent has two separate bedrooms so suitable for two friends to share. We will provide a hot meal each day but you will have to fend for yourself for additional meals, fridge and cupboard space is available. You can access our wifi with your own laptop, tablet or phone.

We are located about halfway between Honiton and Axminster both about 5 miles away. The local village shop is about 1.5 miles away along with the village pub. The Jurassic Coast is just a few more miles away and the area as a whole is excellent for walking or cycling (men's mountain bike available for use)

This is our first time with HelpX after a friend recommended the site
