  • Help


    We are looking for bricklayer and "wood-worker" WITH EXPERIENCE . We are still in the building process and need to build 4 more houses and woodn tree cabins. Experience in building with natural stones would be good. We are looking for help with the food production, cheese making, harvesting and conserving of veggies, herbs and fruits, garden work, milking and slaughtering. Experience would be great but NOT necessary! We are always in need of a small and light person with experience in training horses for our Ponys and small horses. (Not over 60kg) we have 10 equines for pony rides and safari rides.
