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 9 horses, 6 dogs,2 cats and chickens,ducks all running around :)...We have a big farm and look for a couple or two friends who like to work outdoors. In summer we need people for watering the gardens, cleaning pools, guiding the horses with guests, 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....)The whole year we look for people willing to do hard work in the forest and on the land to cut wood, clean the forest and the fields, and many more outdoor jobs like maintenance of the farm...
