We are a family situated on a farm in the eastern Cape about 100km from The coastal city of Port Elizabeth, South Africa. We farm with cattle and bees.

I am overseas most of the time, but you will work and assist Rene, my wife and Chris my 13 year old son. Port Elizabeth is about 100km away, and there are many tourist attractions, as well the Addo National game park nearby. You would live in your own cottage with all amenities. But we like to cook and eat together. There is a swimming pool at the house and a river and waterfall, not too far away.
Routine work:- You will be required to assist with working our herd of Nguni cattle, as well as with beekeeping, construction of beehive and frames as well as harvesting and bottling of honey.
Project work:- We are busy with a new solar pump and dam project. You would be required to assist with bush clearing of hiking paths, operate a mini excavator, laying of pipes, repair of roads etc.
You would live in your own cottage with all amenities.
Off time is on the weekends.
A vehicle is available for your use on the farm. You would need to have an international drivers license if you wish to drive to town. Driving is on the left hand side of the road.
