  • Help


    Help with general duties on the guest farm. Also someone who enjoys cooking or would like to give a hand in the kitchen. We can sometimes be busy in the evenings in the kitchen and a helping hand would be much appreciated.

    Please let us know exactly what you could see yourself working on when you are here. garden, entertaining tourists with games, painting and fixing etc :)

    If you are happy with a quiet country life during the day time working on the farm or planning events and sometimes working at night we would be interested in having you join us.

    There are also a few things that need painting and repairing or moving. We would like some help with this.

    In the pub we would like to have some event evenings... ie, Quiz night, braai night, pizza night, card and board games or whatever else we can use to attract and entertain our local customers. Would you be able to help with this?
