.......We live in an old farmhouse, which is under continuing renovation, We have a small farm,with beef cows,pigs,chickens,ducks,2 dogs and 4 cats.We try to grow seasonal vegetables ,and meals are cooked from scratch wherever possible.We live 3 miles from the nearest village, and are 1 mile from the sea.
We are easy going and quite laid back (most of the time !!) but after a busy day,we prefer quiet evenings at home .
We are renovating our farmhouse very slowly and also hope to make a new garden in 2019 .....so maybe your skills can help us reach our goals? It is a simple life,with no TV but we do have Netflix and lots of DVD's!!
We have 2 comfortable beds in the spare room with DVD/VCR .this would be shared with another volunteer.We all share the bathroom.
Someone with good English and common sense would be preferred , and a genuine interest in farming,animals and gardening would also be useful.As would a good sense of humour!!
Volunteers help in all aspects of the day to day running of the farm, the daily chores i.e.. feeding animals, mucking out daily ,washing feed/water containers,maybe some light housework, and gardening...other farm related jobs could be.. helping with fencing, picking stones,moving cattle, planting trees, chopping logs, or painting, Days can sometimes be long, depending on the weather and the task , but you will be given time off for yourself and time to explore the area. We will also include you in visits to a local market,nearby towns, and friends farms as well as take you to see the sights when time, transport and weather allows. So... If you think you can help with this and contribute to the running of the farm ,and garden and be part of the 'family' for your stay, and you don't mind sharing the sofa with the dogs...then why not drop us a line and lets see where your journey will take you.
Thanks for reading this. we look forward to hearing from you, and welcoming you into our way of 'life'.
Boots,coats and gloves can be provided in most cases , as well as spare clothes....in case you are travelling light!!!
