  • Help


    We need mostly in spring and autumn help at the farm, sometimes also in summer. Depending of the season work is very varied (seeding, care for and harvest fruits and vegetables, care for the animals, constructing things, cutting grass, making wood and much more).

    Sometimes we need help with babysitting.

    In Octobre and novembre is the time of olive harvest, where we also need a hand.

    We offer three meals a day and we would like that the workaywayers help with cooking or cook one of the main meals (lunch or dinner)
