  • Description

    Description

    We own two beautiful lots in North Spain (10.000 m2 Apple Orchard + 7.000 m2 upper field). We have started to creat a self-sustainable farm and are hoping for your help with carrying on this work. We hope to offer seminars in the future and live in a community (so far it is small).

    We need someone to take care of our beautiful farm while we are working on our other farms. We are searching for a person that could at least stay for a month and care for the horses too.
    We still welcome workers, but apart from that we search for somebody who takes care of our farm!

    We own 3 Arabian horses and 1 Welsh Pony. All of them, except one are ridden and also very young. We also own a few dogs.
    Our neighbors also have cows and sheep.

    We are a family which decided to live Off-grind but we still own two other houses with gardens in two different countries and we live in four places. So we travel a lot and love meeting new people. We are hard working people if there is work, but we also like to sit down and enjoy the beauty of the place we created. (-;

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    You can relax in one of our hammocks while enjoying the stunning view! You will live in beautiful Spain, experience Off-grind living (before you maybe take this step yourself), have the opportunity of meeting interesting people living abroad and to practice your Spanish with local people.
    We own several bikes which you can use. You can visit the beach, by bike (two hours) and drive to Nava (30 min.) to go grocery shopping.
    Also you can discover the secret paths of this amazing place!
    I give free riding lessons to anyone who carry a few buckets of water for the horses and helps me collect the horsepoo. (-:
    We know a method which can realease traumatic experiences and a message that helps release all the tension from your body!
