    Basically most of the work would be cutting grass, but depends of the work needed, it can be wood maintenance, painting, or construction.

    We want to build a sheep park, and a chicken coop, we have bees hives too.Depending on wat period you want to come in the farm you will be doing one of these task.

    The help provided is flexible, we will not be looking if you really making 2 hours of work, we prefer to give our trust, and work on mutual respect.
    If you want to go on the north of the island for a few days you can and you will not be required to work more the other days.

    We want you to discover our beautifull country :)
