We are a working alpaca farm near Paarl in the Western Cape. But there also are some sheep, dromedaries, horses and the usual farmyard crowd. There are also our son Daniel, 4 years, and Amelia, 2 years.
Additionally we do have a coffee shop and weaving studio on the farm.
Volunteer help is needed for a never-ending list of small and big projects:
The coffee shop always benefits from help, and the kids love to be looked after, too. To get a better English-language base for the two kids, we would currently love to have native English speakers who would be interested in spending time with them.
Hands are also welcome for any of the planned extensions - agility course for alpacas, kids party area,... Landscaping will need doing around the coffee shop now towards the end of winter.
Our five dromedaries also always do benefit of more training, be it ground work or riding (horse experience a must for this).
And there's always things like gardening, clearing of alien vegetation, and all the day-to-day chores of animal husbandry like feeding.
Prefered length of stay: Minimum 2 weeks
Accommodation for helpers is in a small cottage a short walk from our house. Meals to be shared with us.
Ideal age would be 21+ with a love for animals and farm life and the ability to work as a team as well as independently.
