    Hi, my name is Philip. I'm an Englishman living in Austria. I have a smallholding in the south east of Styria. I breed alpacas and do trekking with them. I also rent rooms in the house and have a small farm shop.

    In the winter months, until around April, I just need someone for a week each month to help me keep the house clean and with occasional work with the animals.
    In the summer, from around April I am looking for a couple to stay for a longer period, at least a month would be nice, to help clean the rooms when guests leave, keep the garden under control, help cleaning out the animals and with the trekking and generally just help me with jobs that are easier with more than one person. One person should enjoy more housework whilst the other should be handy with tools and making/repairing things. I also have 2 dogs who can be quite a handful as they are all rescues. Being confident around dogs is important, and this also means I cannot host people travelling with dogs of their own. Groceries are provided but you have to cook for yourselves.

    Looking forward to hearing from you!

    The house is just around the corner from the beautiful castle of Riegersburg and the area is famous for it's apple tree and elderflower orchards and rolling hills. Check the local website for other local attractions. There is also the famous Austrian chocolate factory Zotter close by and the city of Graz is a 50 min drive. My neighbours include a cheese maker, schnapps maker and sparkling wine makers. There's not much in the way of public transport, the closest train station is Feldbach/Raab.

    Hi, I'm looking for people to help around the farm. I need someone strong who isn't afraid to be hands on with the animals, sometimes I need to weigh the animals or do some alpaca toe nail cutting for example, you need to be strong and confident enough to hold the animal still while I cut the nails. Apart from that I need help cleaning the house and working outside keeping the grounds under control, trimming apple trees putting up fencing.
