Description

We are a small family living on a twenty hectare ORGANIC FARM.
Our aim is to be as self-sufficient as possible and farm in a morally responsible manner while enjoying a peaceful lifestyle.
We have +/- twenty cows which we milk, eat and use as fertilizors; three breeding pigs; in-numeral chickens for eggs, meat and as de-tickers; a flock of geese. The herd of goats is for land-clearing and milk; the horse, mule and donkey for grazing rotation. Our four dogs besides being pets are for breeding. We also have a few hives of bees for honey.
We grow our own vegetables in our large vegetable garden.

Area

We are situated in Byrne Valley, Richmond, Kwazulu Natal. A very beautiful, serene and picturesque area with natural grasslands, indigenous forest and a small village of mainly RETIRED people. There are beautiful walks we would be happy to show you.

Small farm with garagist winery and two guest self catering homes in two other towns.
The cellar produces 2,000 bottles of handcrafted wines. We are not making wine in 2019 because of the drought and other logistic problems. It has a beautiful garden and 110 years old manor house. This all need to be kept neat.
Currently my main job is marketing of the wine.
Guest workers will help all over and could work when and for how long per day as we agree upon. The meals are included with the stay.
The farm is 20km away from the nearest town, Malmesbury and 80km away from Cape Town. Public transport is not really available but we go to town daily and very often to Cape Town if the guest worker wishes to travel with for sight seeing. Hours can be discussed and also the work to be done.
The work is not hard physical labour and if I, a 60+ person can do it so can any one.
If the guest wants to travel, they will be more than welcome.
No smoking in the house and only at certain areas on... more inside

We are a guest lodge and wildlife rehabilitation center based close to Kruger Park.

We run the guest lodge with overnight accommodation, a bar, restaurant and pool in order to fund the work we do with wildlife.

The wildlife center takes in injured and orphaned wildlife and rehabilitates it with the aim of release back into the wild. We mainly work with primates but also take in antelope, birds, and small predators.

We are mainly looking for help in the bar in the lodge in the evenings. This involves 2 - 3 hours (sometimes more if it’s a busy night) working in the bar - serving drinks and possibly meals to our guests and other volunteers.

During the day volunteers are welcome to get involved with the work at the wildlife center. This involves work such as feeding, cleaning, hand raising baby animals, medicating sick animals etc.

In return we will provide accommodation in shared rooms and 3 basic meals a day.
