We are a self supporting organic farm and our main activity is goat cheese production. Our farm exists since 1984, when we built our farm starting just with a few goats. Nowadays, the farm accounts more than 100 goats, 10 black pigs and 20 chickens.
We are located in a small valley near a water reservoir, and the entire farm is surrounded by forest and different types of agrarian and wild landscape. Our land is built in small terraces, where we grow all the vegetables we eat, fruits, corn for bread baking, olives for oil and grapes for juice, additionally we also grow all the animal feed we need for our livestock.
Almost all of our food comes from our farm, which includes vegetables, olive oil, pig, chicken and goat meat. During all year we need help from volunteers in a variety of activities, which includes planting, weeding, watering, crop harvesting, cutting food for the animals, making hay, olive harvesting, cleaning manure out of the stables, grape juice making, amongst oth... more inside

IMMEDIATE..Almond picking by the sea .. URGENT help required-as expected helper suddenly cancelled. We need general friendly help from September 2018 and onwards,we really prefer a 14 day minimum stay-having people come and go is tiring and it takes a while to adjust to eco house lifestyle. Friendly experienced help required [animal friendly people 1 dog and a cat here]who respect creativity.We are only 13 minutes WALK through countryside from a very special unspoilt clean ocean sandy beach in a designated protected natural park area.Due to injury and other difficulties this year; we don`t feel we have the right level of enthusiastic energy to be the best introduction to helpxing for inexperienced helpers. We like 24 hours work each week each person + a bit of vegetable chopping/washing up this is for your accommodation and all your food (see our reviews)
We would value and appreciate an intelligent willing supportive person to help with almond picking and cracking, painting... more inside

Hi all,
We are looking for a volunteer at our beautiful guesthouse,
We are looking for someone who loves cleaning and tiding up and cannot sit still when there's a mess around :)
The guest house is small and wonderful, comprised of 4 private rooms, all together 10 guests max.
We are located at Portugal's Surf Capital, a rural area on the beach which is for me the greatest place to live in.
If you surf or want to learn how to surf, if you enjoy beach towns, cleaning and accommodating guests, this is the place for you.

Looking forward to hearing from you!

Cheers,

Yariv

We live in a beautiful small hamlet nestled in the hills of central Portugal. There are four houses which until recently lay abandoned for 60 years. The river Pera runs through the valley (we have a great swimming hole) and a spring delivers our drinking water. We, Miguel and Shobha, live here with our seven year old son, Saul, and four year old daughter, Anaya, and are restoring part of the hamlet and reclaiming the land. We are planting trees, setting up an organic permaculture garden and provide a retreat and workshop space.

Helpers are needed for a vast array of tasks! These include landscaping, clearing, cleaning, cooking, childcare, gardening, tree-felling, pointing, dry-wall restoration ... and more! Accomodation is either in tipis or a self-contained room. The set up is basic but comfortable. We have a solar set up for electricity & wifi. We will also provide 3 nourishing, vegetarian meals. We ask for 5 hours work per day, 5 days a week. We welcome nature-loving, commu... more inside
