  • Description

    Description

    We are a vineyard, commercial apiary (Beekeepers) and small farm. We have all sorts of animals including horses. We are looking for a single or a couple to come and stay with us to help out in the vineyard, some pruning, weeding gardens and general tidying. All work is outdoors, so you must be fit, physically capable, have good footwear, and like being outside. We have a cafe/restaurant onsite, so there are always lots of people coming and going! We will provide top quality meals and excellent accomodation in return for your help. Must have your own transport as we are rurally located. Our property is smoke free
