Hello all, we are a small farm in the making in central Portugal, Me Sandy 61 and my son Marley 28, we are from England, our aims are to be self sustaining in time and to live life simply, we hope to use permaculture and biodynamic principles and any help in these would be very appreciated especially more knowledge :) and we really need some help we will be very pleased to meet you. Things here at the moment are very basic and we need help with many things i.e. animal pens, fencing, building, land cleaning, tree pruning, stone wall repairing, just to name a few. Tasks can be varied so you won't get bored with one thing all the time, Your artistic flair is very welcome in all areas. The working hours are flexible but when it gets very hot it is best to start early before the day gets too hot. We have just finished a little nesting box and run for one of the chickens and she has just one baby chick solo hatched just a week ago. In exchange for 4 or 5 hours a day we will provide 3 meals a day, and you are welcome to share in the cooking or preparing if you would like. At the moment we only have camping and can supply a tent and bedding if you need. There is a great community of lovely people in the area of different nationalities and a wide mix of ages, The area has a lot to be explored, lovely Portuguese villages, there are lakes nearby for cooling down in summer and great for walking, cycling. Quiet with lovely birdsong and nature. Really looking forward to hearing from you thanks? Short term, long term and permanent stays very welcome, come and enjoy peace and quiet and get back to nature and living simply with joy.
