    Hello, thank you for your interest in our project. We have a small mixed farm with chickens, sheep and vegetables.

    We are looking for someone who is willing to be independent and self catering, It is important that you have an interest and enthusiasm to help on our farm. You must be able to communicate well in English. We are looking for someone who is fit to work and has plenty of energy, a positive attitude and is happy to do many different kinds of jobs including: sorting eggs, weeding, planting , harvesting and perhaps some housekeeping and childcare, etc etc.
    Every working day , your first task will be to sort, the eggs.

    We have an 9 year old boy and a 4 year old boy who will be very keen to meet and play with you. We ask that we have privacy in the house to have our own family time, and you should be happy to spend your free time in your own company unless invited otherwise. We do love to meet all sorts of people from around the world and will be interested to spend time with you during the day.
    We will provide food for you to cook, including produce from the farm and we require you to cook for yourself. There is a cooker in the Barn . We can accommodate meat eaters or vegetarians.

    All help is welcome at any time of year. We normally invite helpers to stay for around 2 or 3 weeks at a time.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    The location is rural, but only two miles from the small town of Newcastle Emlyn, and 8 miles from the sea. There are castles and beaches to visit, as well as footpaths to go walking by woods and rivers. From Newcastle Emlyn there are regular buses to the bigger towns of Cardigan and Carmarthen. Pembrokeshire coast national park is to the south and Snowdonia national park is to the north. We are not close to any big cities.
