We're looking for a helper (or could suit a couple) on our farm and B&B in Normandy for maintenance, gardening, painting, DIY projects. Ideally someone physically fit with basic DIY skills, as there will be things to fix and install (stuff like putting up shelves, changing stable door fixings, repairing fencing etc). We have all tools here in our workshop!
We also have a large garden (fruit/veg), compete ponies in showjumping and have a small livery yard so there are always outdoor jobs to do.
Busy, friendly, hard-working farming family with 3 kids, a dog and 3 cats - come with a smile, sense of humour and a willing attitude! It's a bit mad (and noisy at times) here but we like it that way!! We produce our own meat and dairy (milk, cream, yoghurt) so would prefer helpers who can fit in with this diet.
Simple accommodation, good food and a warm welcome assured!
