  • Ajuda

    Ajuda

    2022 : *READY TO HOST HELPERS AGAIN - LONGTERM HELPERS PREFERRED !*

    *Starting approx. end of June and preferably for 2 - 3 months (or longer), 1 to max 2 motivated and strong helper/s !


    *****
    *Coronavirus: Entering Switzerland: Right now, no restriction
    Please check the the updated corona regulation for entry Switzerland under the website of the Federal Office of Public Health FOPH

    ******
    * We don't plan too far ahead as all depends on how long the current helpers are staying or extending their stay with us but you can still try applying between the openings dates as sometimes we have last minute vacancies.

    ******
    IMPORTANT BEFORE APPLYING HERE:
    *Please read all the informations below and if you think you fit here please contact us!

    *We usually try to respond within 24 hours ( but sometimes we need a couple of days) ; it would be useful if you wouldn`t apply at the same time to many different places, because once we decide to host you here we truly rely on you coming here. Thank you!

    *This is a Farm Sanctuary and we work very hard for our animals.
    We have many sheep, horses, cattle and dogs. The Farm is connected by cable car as there are two barns, one up in the mountain for the sheep and one down the valley for horses and highland cattle. In summer we mouve all animals to different mountain pasture.

    We are looking for reasonably strong, reliabel, friendly, honest and hard working volunteers, preferably with driving license, who loves animals, working outdoors and that feels comfortable being in solitude. It is important that helpers are healthy minded and able to work both independently and under instruction. Alcool only in moderation !

    ! If you want to volunteer here, you should be physically and mentally strong as there are plenty of hikes, so be ready to do lots of walking. Moreover in winter time we get a lot of snow !

    Due to the fact, that the farm is pretty large and in addiction to farming I also teach sport-swimming at the local school, I prefer long term helper/s that have the confidence to work independently and sometimes alone.

    I will only consider requests with a picture of yourself and from helpers truly interested working in a farming environment. If you are not used to it, sometimes the help can be tough but you will always get enough time off to relax or explore the area.

    ******
    *There can be periods of intense help depending on the time of year but can be compensated with more free time.

    Help is mostly needed during April until November but there are tasks to be done all year round, so during the winter, (December until March) I can also host someone (max two helpers).

    The help will involve April-August: From mid April onwards we are going to spend a lot of time preparing the farm and the fields to put the animals outdoors for the Summer. In Summer, the busiest time of the year, we work hard, we make hay on steep alpine meadows and bring the hay into the stable. Helpers should be in good physical condition and not afraid of hard work. We also water and sprinkler the fields and regularly check on the animals on the high mountain pasture.

    September-March: making and repairing fences, getting the farm ready for the winter, regularly check on the animals, mouving the animals, watering the fields, feeding the animals, cleaning out manure and general tasks around the farm.

    ******
    *Taking pleasure in working physically with your body and enjoying solitude would be necessary to have a good time here. I would particularly welcome people with some tractor-driving skills or willing to learn it.

    You will need to bring: for your own safety; good hiking shoes, no sneakers, clothes for helping outside in winter or summer. Personal health insurance.

    *****
    You will be helping in a beautiful location and depending on the season around 5 hours a day, sometimes less, sometimes more; these hours can be reasonably flexible, allowing you time to explore our area and beautiful mountain and in winter, on your days off you can go skiing / snowboarding or just relax. In exchange I offer a lovely accomodation with cooking facilities and pocket money for your grocery. Thank you for considering coming here.

    If you seek a simple life in a beautiful landscape I would love to hear from you

  • Acomodação

    Acomodação

    *Just to give you an idea about the accommodation, it is comfortable cosy flat with two separate bedrooms, (one has a queen bed and in the other room has single beds), a kitchen, living room and bathroom and a has everything you need for cooking etc. The wifi is relatively limited in the flat itself however there is a restaurant about 50m away that has pretty good wifi. The flat is located in the heart of the village, , and is close to the farm and the local shops (grocery etc). Due to the living arrangements it is not possible to live with me so you will have the flat for yourself/with other volonteers.
