Host AG114

We are a family with 2 kids, having moved from the UK last year, recently purchased an old farm with large mixed woodland and lots of potential.
The builders are constructing the 2 new houses and in the meantime we need help with preparing the land, tree planting, building walls, making paths, clearing land, strimming, collecting stones and wood, building animal sheds etc. (Accommodation will however be in a large house in town and we will drive to the land daily). Some domestic help at home will also be appreciated included cleaning the large town house twice a week. The aim is to be totally self sufficient on the farm and power will all be generated from solar panels as there is currently no electricity on the land. All water will come from wells and springs on site and there are no pesticides or chemicals that will be used. As we have 5 dogs of varying size it is imperative that there is some affiliation with these animals. Dog walking or taking the dogs to the land will be required. This opportunity provides the advantage of working in a remote location by day but living in the social town of Monchique among a larger WWOOFing community.
