    Description

    my husband Ian and I are renovating a Spanish farmhouse.
    we are trying to become as self sustainable as possible.
    we live completely off grid (solar)
    we have a small farm consisting of pigs turkeys chickens ducks and goats.
    these are the things we need help with:
    2 vegetable gardens
    construction work on the house ie:plastering,tiling,concreting etc.
    fixing up a static caravan with a view to renting it out.this involves carpentry.
    processing some of the animals for the freezer and pen maintenance.
    certain times of the year harvesting the almonds and carobs.
    we only accept 2 or more people at a time so no individuals please.
    you now know what we need.why would you be good for us? :)

    There are 450 almond trees that we harvest and 150 carob trees.
    the almonds are usually weighed in and carobs used for animal feed.
    we have many ongoing projects all around our property.If you have any specific skill or interest please let us know .
    carpentry, animal welfare, gardening, building are going to be our priorities along with the harvesting
