We own & manage two farms totalling 590 ha either side of the picturesque lower Rangitikei river in the North Island of New Zealand. My wife & I run a lamb & cattle finishing business with a small arable cropping enterprise. We are incorporating organic principles and environmenally friendly practices into our management as we progress forward.
I live with my partner in beautiful rural Andalucia in the province of Granada. We have been in Spain since 2002 and now live a simple relaxed life and look forward to meeting new people. We own a holiday cave house and let it throughout the year to all nationalities. We live in a cortijo (farm house) which has been renovated and we have acquired the adjoining cortijo and are in the process of sympathetically restoring it with the aim of using it as another holiday property. We have 2 cats in the house and often there are others around the house and land. We look forward to welcoming people to our home and having lively, good humoured conversations.
We are a couple - Alan (Irish) & Lara (South African) who moved to Portugal in 2011 to enjoy the "good life". Our smallholding (Quinta) has a vineyard, olive trees and rocky hillside. We have a beautiful view of the Serra d'Estrela national park where it is possible to ski when snow permits. We are currently renovating and renewing a somewhat neglected vineyard and we are planting trees and a vegetable garden in order to enjoy our own organic vegetables. Our new barn has just been completed and we keep chickens, geese and sheep.
**SORRY, I'M UNABLE TO TAKE NEW WORKAWAYERS AT THE MOMENT**
Thank you for your offers of help and sorry if I didn't manage to reply.
We live on a small-holding of 38 acres in Scotland just on the edge of a small town in Perthshire. We have two dogs, three cats and three rescue ponies. We're looking for help to tidy up the garden, do general maintenance, painting and decorating, field work and occasional help with the animals. We have two self-catering holiday cottages so some help with cottage change-over days (Saturday) which can be hectic if guests leave late/arrive early! I prefer Workawayers over the age of 21 and who are well used to fending for themselves, I'm too busy to be someone's mum! A good command of the English language is also necessary.
