We run a small goat farm in the Negev Desert in Israel, and we prepare cheese from the goats milk, our farm is organic and the goats go out to graze in the valleys surrounding Ezuz, our village.
Work begins early morning, and your duties will include taking the goats out to graze in the valleys, helping with cheese making, gardening, and other "bits and bobs" about the farm.
You will do about 3-4 hours of work in the morning and then early evening 2 hours, 1 day off during the week and if you want more, we are very easy with that. Bus reaches our village once a day.
We provide all accommodation and food, which you cook yourselves.
We will be very happy to answer any questions you might have. Health insurance is a must, as medical treatment in Israel can be very expensive. We like helpers to stay a month or more. ( it takes about 2 weeks to learn the work)
Come and experience the stunning views of the desert- you will have plenty of time to explore!
