Program Details

5 hours per day 5 days per week, then you can travel on free days, mid week ,when buses,are more frequent to tourist attractions. Volunteers must be able to cook and prepare own foods, once I teach you the machines. I eat my own food programme,with no wheat and small portions 5 times daily. This is a lifestyle and fitness choice.


Activities & Shift

The farm and garden activities require waterproof and thermal layers as the climate is damp in winter.You will need thick socks and boots. You can take your meals at the best time daily to suit you and your usual food plan.


Rules

Respect my home and animals.Respect my knowledge and wisdom from building/renovating my small farm. No smoking,or alcohol in house. Breakfast is at 8am,so the animals can be fed and cleaned afterwards.I generally finish at 4pm in winter with the last feeds. It is then too dark outside.I have security gates that stay locked, as sheep will constantly walk in, to eat my gardens, as a sheep dealer has new flocks, arriving all the time and they love to escape!🤩
