  • Description

    Description

    Not afraid of hard worK? Experience in either farming carpentry or other trade/construction experience? If so, first check our calendar to see if your dates coincide with our requirement for helpers on our family-run 15-acre organic farm in a secluded location in the heartlands of Oman at the tip of the Arabian Peninsula. We are cultivating date and fruit trees, perennial crops and seasonal vegetables in system loosely based on permaculture principles unique in Oman. The challenge of maintaining diversity and sustainability in an arid climate with little rainwater, means that we are in permanent exciting state of experimentation and expansion.

    As a busy, working farm, most of the work is physical and demanding which would suit a mature individual /couple ready to work 5 hours a day 5 days a week for a minimum period of 2 weeks. The ideal person would be independent, motivated and content happy to be in a semi-remote location, wide-open spaces, close to nature. Please note this is an entirely no smoking property.Accommodation may be shared with other wwers

    Our farming activities are supplemented by bed and breakfast accommodation in our four purpose-built eco-cabins for independent travellers. Minimal help may be required on check in or check out.

    You will have two full days a week off and free time other days of the week. In your free time, you can use the on-farm amenities - 2 pools, table tennis, bowling, swing in a hammock under the date palms, climb the neighbouring hills (bronze age tombs), accompany us on errands in the locality and subject to the farming and guest schedule, we would do our best to show you to a few sights such as forts, abandoned adobe villages etc...nearby.

    Due to our location unless you rent a car or travel to pick up the (infrequent) bus from the main road you will need to be flexible on which days of the week you have off. We are happy to provide a lift back to Muscat depending on our schedule. You might prefer to accumulate days off so you can have a good stretch of time touring for example.

    Please be aware that this is an off the beaten track location with few amenities in the locale other than those on the farm and thus not suitable for someone who is looking for thrills and excitement. Please also note that alcohol in Oman is not widely available so if this is an important part of your lifestyle, our location will not suit you.
