Want to spend Christmas 2022 on an off-grid 8 ha farm?

Oct 3, 2022

We are looking for 1 or 2 reliable farm-sitters in December in Central Portugal, as we have to leave for 1 week (between 21st and 28th). You will be staying in our strawbale house and will have to take a good care of our animals (1 dog, 2 cats, 2 horses, 1 goat) and maybe do a few tasks in the garden.

Minimum knowledge of horses is desired, and love for animals is a must ! Ideally you will have to learn how to milk a goat.

You will be able to eat some of our winter veggies from the garden + goat milk/cheese + tap into some of our winter stock (apples, potatoes, olive oil).

Possible use of our pickup in case of emergency.

You should plan to come at least 5 days earlier in order to have a good handover of the propery (you will be considered as full time wwoofers then), and to stay 1-2 days after we are back.

Looking forward to having you here !

PS : Urgent confirmation is needed for us to organize our trip, and once you confirm, please don’t cancel…
