  • Description


    At the moment we need someone strong with a hands-on mentality. We have a lot of odd jobs such as clearing terrain, cutting and sawing wood etc. You have to be fit enough to carry things and do physical work and work with machines. So if you are not afraid of dirty hands and wearing boots, this is the place to be!

    We are a couple Ton(51) and Tanja(54), that moved from the city to an old farmhouse. This farmhouse from 1895 is situated on a plot off 1.7 hectare with wood, meadows, orchards and gardens.

    The region of Winterswijk Woold is very attractive, there is wildlife and nature and farmers. You can make nice walks and bikerides. It is near the border with Germany. In 2014, after a few years of renovating and decorating, we opened our holidayhome. This is our business, we are not farmers. In de weekends and holidays we provide self-supporting accomodation for 17 persons. Groups come here for a weekend with friends or family.

    Since cleaning the holidayhome and making beds is a lot of work, maintenance and redesigning of gardens, meadows and orchards is falling behind. We also have 7 sheep.
    Tanja is the handyman and gardener here and you will be working with her. She likes to work with all kinds of people and is broadminded. Her adagium is 'If you can't do it the way it is supposed to, do it the way you can.
    We are not vegetarian but some days we don't eat meat.

    On our plot of 1.7hectare we have gardens, orchards and meadows which need maintenance. Other work is in de vegetable garden and gardens. Mainly weeding . Our small forest needs maintenance too.In september we need help picking fruit and taking care of fruittrees and bushes. We try to re -use materials and local wood as much as possible. So if you like to work with your hands and create something new from old material and do physical work, this is the place to be.
    On rainy days we do jobs in the accomodation, paint furniture or make jam or pickle, you might help with that too.
