  • Description

    Description

    Hello Workawayers, We are located in THE Northern part of India. Our town is approx 90-100 km away from Delhi and is called Charkhi Dadri in Haryana State/ provenience. Charkhi Dadri is a small town and our farm is countryside (6-7 km from house). We go there in morning and come back after 4-5 hrs.
    The base location would be Charkhi Dadri (only). This is an organic farm and we do mainly agriculture there (wheat, barley, mustard are being grown as of now). However, we are thinking to move towards horticulture as well.

    In Charkhi Dadri, we have two beautiful cows and their two sweet calves. These are kept in an open plot adjacent to our house. So you can help in the farm or with animal care. If you know how to milk cows that is good. If not, you can learn from us. We also grow vegetables at our house, so you can help with that as well.

If you are an animal and cow lover, you can help us with cow care, like milking or other day-to-day care. You can help with bringing fodder from farm for cows on motorbike.. so If you know how to ride a motorbike or drive a car that is good- but not necessary.

    Helpers can go to Gurgaon/ Delhi during the weekend. It’s around 90 km from our town. Other than that, there is a small hill and temple, where you can do small trekking etc. Also, there are direct trains to Jaipur. It takes approx. 5 hrs by train to reach Jaipur. So you can travel to Jaipur for 2-3 days in between if you want. Jaipur is one of the famous tourist cities in India… You can also visit to Agra from Jaipur and come back.

    You will be living as a part of family, so you can learn lots of Indian culture, can learn about society. We (will) also encourage you to make yourself at home with us and cook with us to experience Indian food and Indian traditions, customs etc.
