    Description

    We are João(Portugal) and Liesje (Belgium), we run a holiday farm with 3 apartments and a gipsy wagon in the center of Portugal. We have 10 horses, 5 dogs,3 cats and chickens, all running around :)...We have a big farm and look for a couple or two friends who like to volunteer outdoors.The whole year we look for people willing to do hard work in the forest and on the land to cut wood, bush-cut the forest and the fields, and many more outdoor jobs like maintenance of the farm...There is no horse riding or training involved as our horses are free!! In summer we need people for watering the gardens, cleaning pools, guiding the horses with guests, like cooking and do maintenance of gardens and surrounding of the farm(painting, weeding, cleaning horse stables or poop in the fields, feeding dogs, cats, chickens, horses....)
