  • Description


    Our farm is located 35kms East of Phitsanulok towards the mountainous region of Phetchabun (Khao Kor). It's an area of natural beauty generally overlooked by visitors from overseas. It's remote and quiet so it's suitable for those seeking some time away to relax in the countryside.
    The farm includes a 60 acre Rubber Plantation and 10 acres of land which is mostly taken up with Fig, banana, papaya, mango & Mulberry trees.

    We are a Thai/Scottish family with 2 kids aged 12 & 14

    Requirements as of : 3rd December, 2020
    With the kids away at school in Scotland we require volunteers for farm work only. This is quite hard and dirty work in
    the heat, although we choose to work early in the morning to avoid the worst of the temperatures during the afternoon.
    The farm work can involve some heavy lifting, weeding, planting, picking of the produce.
    Food and accommodation will be provided, although you will have to cook the majority of your meals yourself, a sufficient amount of meat, vegetables, sauces etc. will be provided for you to do so.
    We are looking for volunteers that can stay a minimum of around 3 weeks and even longer term although we can accept lesser stays if we feel you have relevant skills that we require. eg. gardening, building, mechanical, electrical knowledge
