Live in couple

FRANCE / Green Your Space Group

Our current couple are sadly leaving us and we are looking for the right couple to work our smallholding.
Based in Burgundy,Ferme d l’hospice is a rural smallholding, home to Peter and his animals.
We have 2 dogs, pigs, 7 horses, geese, chickens, turkeys and rabbits.
The smallholding has grazing, stables and out buildings, a miniature railway track which runs around the exterior of the land.
Our plans are for the pig pens to be revamped, stables to be repaired and hopefully time and weather permitting repairs to the railway track.
We are a friendly crowd and you are welcome to join in with all our activities, or keep yourself to yourself, the choice is yours. Peter goes away a lot for work so there will be times when you have the place to yourself. We do have the occasional rowdy party (once or twice a year) though!

We are very rural so a driving licence and transport would be necessary.
Single person or a couple considered. We would prefer it if you had no pets.
We raise some of our animals for meat so if this offends we are not the place for you.
If you think this may suit you we are offering a small 2 bedroom cottage all inclusive, wage and food allowance.
You are able to work out your own routine, providing it covers the needs of the animals. You will be able to ride if you wish. Experience on a smallholding with many types of animal is essential.
We will need you to work each day. You will be responsible for the day to day care of the animals, feeding and watering all stock and mucking out when horses are in. There will also be some jobs that need doing like cleaning out the chickens rabbits and pigs .
Looking after animals is a 7 day a week job, you will get days off but these will need to be arranged so that animals are cared for.

We are looking for a fit and healthy motivated couple (person) who must care for animals. Experience with animals, horses in particular is necessary.
You will need to be able to get up in the morning and be willing to step up if help is needed.
It can be cold and wet or hot and dry and you will need to be able to cope with both.
