  • Description


    Hello Workawayers, we are my husband Lionel and I (Sara), we have a calm environment and we are passionate about the field, and our animals (cows, sheep, dogs, cats and of course our horses), hence the dream of having our own mini equestrian farm was born.
    These are different times and for the same reason your help is more necessary, we look for people who know about carpentry and roof repair, as well as work in greenhouse and avocados or other trees and plants, prepare land for planting, in addition to caring for our little friends from 4 legs.

    Hola Workawayers, somos mi esposo Lionel y yo (Sara), tenemos un ambiente tranquilo y nos apasiona el campo,

    Son tiempos diferentes y por lo mismo tu ayuda es mas necesaria, buscamos personas que sepan de carpinteria y reparacion de techos, como tambien trabajo en invernadero y paltos u otros arboles y plantas, preparar tierra para siembra, ademas del cuidado de nuestros pequeños amigos de 4 patas.

  • Help


    Your help could consist of: help with the horses, Help with feeding and cleaning of the horses, if experience: riding and working the horses (if no experience you will learn it anyway if you want :) ), help cleaning the horse stables. Help to maintain the greenhouse like: watering the plants and help planting vegetables etc. If you have abilities in carpentry: Help us repare and realize your own projects. Or help in the house with cleaning, cooking and laundry.

    There are tasks for every body and every talent. It is just important that you are a teamworker as all the tasks will be shared fairly. Also you have to love the countryside, be positive and be not too worried about getting yourself dirty or gettint up early, as the life with horses always starts early in the day and theres lots of work to do! :)

    El trabajo se realiza en equipo, necesitamos personas dispuestas a trabajar en las áreas indicadas y que sean alegres y activos en los quehaceres. Tampoco les deberia molestar levantarse temprano, o ensuciarse trabajando, porque eso implica la vida campestre con caballos para nosotros :).
