**** LOOKING FOR HELP WITH OLIVE HARVEST. BEGINNING OF NOVEMBER ****
Olá! We are Lois, Max and little Fauna (born Jan 2020) and we are seeking a person, or a couple, to come and help us out with our daily tasks!
Me (Lois) spent 2 years travelling Europe in my campervan, volunteering on farms before settling here on my own farm in Portugal.
We are nestled in the beautiful rolling countryside just between the city of Castelo Branco & Fundao.
We are completely off grid and keep a number of different animals, goats, chickens, ducks and 4 cats.
Our routine is dictated by the season and the animals, but generally we are looking for 5 hours of help a day, for 5 days a week.
We will provide food items for breakfast for you to enjoy in the van, and we will have lunch and evening meal together, with at least one hot cooked meal a day.
We are looking for people with enthusiasm towards living simply, a good sense of humor and a love of nature and animals!
An understanding of spoken English is required. We would love to improve our Portuguese if you're a native speaker.
For further details and questions, you are more then welcome to contact us.
DIY and building projects
Creating/ Cooking family meals
Help around the house
Here you can learn about gardening, goats & milking, pruning trees, picking olives, picking grapes, making wine, making different cheeses - all depending on the time of the year!
This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
We are looking for help with tasks like sheperding the goats, planting & gardening, small building tasks, collecting fruit, watering, helping with day to day tasks like bread making, cooking (if you'd like!) also special tasks like painting murals on outside buildings, if you're artistic!
The accommodation would be a campervan with own cooker, grill, sink and solar panel to charge your phone. There is wifi in our house.
Or if you have your own campervan you are more than welcome to come park up!
The beautiful village of Monsanto is about 40 minutes away, which was voted the "most Portuguese village in Portugal". The city of Castelo Branco is half an hour journey away, and so is the lovely town of Fundao.
