  • Description


    I’m now looking for two helpers….one to help me with a future house move (packing, sorting, filling boxes, generally a pair of hands which are happy to be wherever they’re needed) and the other to give a hand on the farm - and this will include helping with cows and calves, milking, feeding, generally getting involved with their day to day care and these tasks can be quite physical may involve some early starts, so you would need to be happy with that.
    Come with a sense of humour and a smile. You will have a nice room and be taken care of like one of the family. The only thing you will need is your Health Pass (we can only host double vaccinated travellers) and your own health insurance.
    Thanks in advance!
