We are a family that runs a small farm as a hobby near to the edge of the Peak District national park in the centre of the UK.
Our farm has a few animals (pigs, goats, chickens, geese) and pets (dogs, cats and rabbits) and we are always looking for people to learn more about animals and the countryside while helping out.
The farm has great views over the Peak District and it is fantastic just to be outside working in nature. The area itself is very rural and offers great opportunities for outdoor activities as well as to explore small market towns.
For those wanting to use the farm as a base to explore, we are about 30 mins by train to Manchester and and hour and a half to London.
We can help you improve your English as well as understand a little more about living in the UK.
Additionally, we will help you learn more about caring for animals and for nature.
We always have jobs to do around the farm.
Helping out feeding and looking after the animals.
Working with us to clear land and prepare new areas of the farm.
General physical and outdoor work.
English, Czech, (SOME) German and French
Double room within the farmhouse with a shared bathroom.
You can have access to the kitchen and other living areas - either to prepare food yourselves or to eat with the family.
We are fairly flexible about the working patterns - as long as they fit with helping to feed our animals - so days off and trips can be arranged to suit us all.
The local area is great for walking, cycling and horse riding.
Public transport is a bit limited (so having a driving license would be useful) but we might be able to give you access to a car and the nearest train station is about 5 miles away.
Limited internet access
We have pets
We are smokers
