Área: ScotlandHi, we are a small family run farm in the beautiful Highlands of Scotland. We have a few animals, we produce hay and haylage in the summer months and grow around 100 varieties of salad on the farm which we supply to top chefs, celebrity chefs and high quality delicatessens. We manufacture our own range of dressings on the farm, which we sell to delis and restaurants. All our products are award winning, and our salad is Overall Product of the Year 2011 for the whole of Scotland. This is an opportunity for someone to learn about growing and producing food - from seed to plate! We have 50 acres, sea views, mountain views and are adjacent to woodland. We have a small caravan site for 5 touring caravans, wildlife ponds, ponies, ducks, sheep, dogs. Please note that it is a very busy place, as owners, we have very little time off for ourselves, especially during the spring and summer months.
Área: AndaluciaWe are a couple who are in our twilight years, although in our minds we are still in our thirties. Unfortunatley our bodies tell us otherwise and we find we can not do as much as we want to! I am English and my partner is Spanish from Catalonia. We have families in both England, Barcelona and Girona. My partner is karaoke mad, he was in a band (Los sirex) when he was much younger and has never lost the need to perform! We do go once a month to a karaoke bar on the coast and you would be welcome to join us either spend the evening with us or go off by yourself to find a bar that suits you. Daily trips to the local village and a coffee or beer in the local hotel, petanca and intercambio once a week pretty much explains our life.
