We are a retired couple, living in the Serra do Açor area of Central Portugal. We have a farm of approximately 7 hectares with a variety of animals and dogs. We previously had a fully certified organic farm in the UK. Whilst we do eat some of our own meat, animal welfare is a major importance to us.
We have our own vegetable garden.
We are looking for someone to help on the farm, predominantly helping with the animals and other day to day tasks.
It is important to us that anyone who would like to stay with us has a genuine love of animals.
Long stays are preferably like 3 months.
This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
Somewhere to learn to handle animals, take care of them, milking. Experience of living in an offgrid farm, own water and electricity, a very rural experience.
Help would be 4-5 hours a day, 5 days a week.
Usually it is a few hours of animal care in the morning and a few hours in the evening.
Tasks will be mainly, feeding the animals, milking the goats, taking care of their shelter.
Accommodation is in a large comfortable caravan, that has heating, running water, shower, separate bathroom.
In the caravan there is a cooker and fridge, but we prefer to have meals together, especially the main meals.
We have internet on the farm. There is a village 20 minutes by foot, where there are a few bars, with a small shop, pool table, a proper swimmingpool. There are plenty hikingtrails, breath taking views. Coimbra is one hour away.
