Set in the beautiful countryside just on the Welsh border. Close to areas of special scientific interest, meres, mosses and canals. Also commutable to the Welsh coast for days off if required.
We farm in a mostly organic way, sheep, poultry, rescued horses.also rescued dogs. We would like help from people with abilities in construction, fencing or logging or those who wish to care for the animals.Please note that we do expect a fair exchange of hours for board. we are not able to run a hotel service for unwilling helpers as this is a charitable organisation and food and facilities are not free. Please note this is a non-smoking site due to insurance and safety.
Our gardens and hedgerows are left for the benefit of the many rare birds and insects. We have a large sett of badgers who can be seen by camping nearby.
Due to failing health we need help to continue our work. This is rural but not remote.There is limited bus service within one mile and trains three miles away.( The nearest town) We do provide bicycles and help to travel where possible.
The work is outdoors and mainly physical, so willingness to muck in and muck out in ALL weathers is essential!.. Together with an empathy for what we do. We welcome help from anywhere but please only people who have read and understand the basic profile. This is a very busy place and we don't have time to spend days messaging back and to when the applicants have not read the profile. Some ability to care for ones-self is also required as all is supplied to prepare breakfast, and clean up the accommodation and oneself during the stay, this may seem obvious but some visitors of late have not had basic self care ability! A decent and hearty lunch and home cooked evening meal is provided with no washing up duties! If you are genuine you will know the reason for this! For those who read the profile fully this has been a mutually great experience.... with lots of extra treats and help to travel...Please phone if the profile is unclear. Thanks
