    Hi! :)
    We are looking for happy, enthusiastic people to come and help us out with projects on the farm and house!
    Due to our circumstances, in the coming months of Sept, Oct, Nov, Dec 2018, we are ideally looking for a couple (2 friends or 1 person would be OK too) who have skills and experience in something we need help with at the moment (see section below ;-) and a good standard of English.

    THE THINGS WE NEED HELP WITH AT THE MOMENT
    Landscaping around a stream, clearing brambles, filling a small trench, gardening.
    Painting both inside and outside of the house, general home chores and cleaning.

    OTHER JOBS
    There are always loads of different projects that need getting on with on the farm, Other possible jobs might include gardening, weeding, feeding and looking after animals, clearing brush, tidying, cleaning, painting, building things from wood...!

    ALSO ANY TYPE OF DANCING TUITION HIGHLY SORT AFTER!
    Partner dances, West Coast Swing, Ballroom, Latin, Salsa, Contemporary, Jazz, 5 Rhythms, etc.

    HOURS
    We ask that you work around 20-25 hours per week, generally 4-5 hours a day, for 5 days, but this is flexible depending on yourselves and the job. We are happy for you to work fewer hours in exchange for your skill level or for a physically demanding task.

    Our Place
    The farm is in a beautiful spot with rolling countryside, you can see Dartmoor on a clear day, we have woods and meadows and the fields go down to the river Torridge
    We moved here 4 ½ years ago and are slowly turning the place into a smallholding and wild garden.
    This involves; restoring the fields to native meadow, planting trees, flowers & creating artwork around the place.
    We have a big veg garden & polytunnel, 9 chickens, 16 ducks and 2 dogs, we have pigs in the summer, and oh yes... 20,000 bees!

    Us
    We are a family group of Grandma (Diana), Mum (Abi), Dad (Rich), Ash 2yrs and baby Tia.
    We are all pretty relaxed and easy going, love the outdoors, creating things and meeting new people.
    Diana is a passionate gardener & Bookbinding Teacher, Rich's green fingers grow all our fruit and veg. Abi designs all the things we build onsite.

    Eating
    We will provide you with whatever food you would like for breakfast - Tea, Coffee, bread, cereal, eggs etc. to eat when ever suits you. Lunch, similar, sometimes we will prepare and all have lunch together.. Evening meal – work days, we will prepare something nice for all of us, (Abi & Diana are both very good cooks). Rest days we normally ask that you do your own thing, any food you would like provided (sausages, veg, pasta etc)
    We offen have BBQs by the river if the weather is nice.

    Accommodation
    We can sort a room in the house if the weather is cold and wet.
    Our normal summer 'residence de helper' is a trailer caravan in the barn with 2 fitted double beds. There is Wifi and power, cooking facilitates & a toilet in the caravan, your own fridge/freezer & compost toilet in the barn. Helpers have access to the shower/Toilet in the Studio, cooking in Abi’s house

    Getting about
    There is Pub & Bus Stop within walking distance, with 5 buses a day to the local towns of Holsworthy & Torrington and beyond if you wish to travel further, we often drive into town to get supplies, or to take the kids to the beach, so you would be welcome to come along.
