Enjoy the pleasure of organic farming

The "Jeftlek" farm is an organic olive farm located 45km from Amman, in Jerash mountains-Jordan. The farm also has citrus and fruit trees and grows seasonal vegetables. Sheep, Geese, Ducks, and Chicken are also bred on the farm and are allowed free grazing.

In the Jeftlek farm we host volunteers during two main seasons through the year.

“Enjoy the Farm Spring” season

which starts early March till mid June. Work in spring includes preparing the land for spring and summer planting, watering, weeding, field crops harvesting, shepherding and taking care of newly born sheep and chicken.

“The Joy of Olive Harvesting” season

which starts early September and lasts till mid December, work involves Olive picking, tree pruning, plant irrigation, animal care, cooking, and housekeeping.

In each season the farm hosts (6-8) farm lovers/ volunteers to participate in the farm activities. The farm will provide lodging and organic food is provided, work is around 6-8 hours/ day and volunteers will have free time to visit Dibeen's forest reserve, Jerash mountains, and Jerash archaeological sites. Minimum stay is for two weeks and volunteers who can stay for longer periods are preferred.

If you are interested please provide a brief of your farming experience (if you have) and specify the period and the length of your desired stay and send it to us.
