About

We are an English couple. After 10 years in London we left the rat race to begin a new adventure building an ostrich farm in Bulgaria. 5 years in we now have 3 generations of ostriches (Over 100 birds) and a petting zoo with chickens, ducks, turkeys, rabbits, guinea pigs, a small bird aviary, 3 dogs and a cat (who thinks he's a dog). This year our main work will be collecting eggs and hatching ostrich chicks. As well as everything ostrich, we are preparing the farm to be a visitor attraction for the summer months, mainly for school groups. In the spring we will be updating the petting farm and adding to the kids play area. In the summer we will need help running the tours and looking after all the animals. There is always plenty to do!

Myself and my husband are English. The permanent staff on the farm are Bulgarian. Both Bulgarian and English are used in the working day. Can also communicate in Greek, German, Spanish. Language should not be a barrier....

N/A

In return for work at the farm we can offer accommodation on site with a beautiful view and friendly pets to keep you company. There is a hot shower and toilet facilities, wireless internet on site. There are shops in the village (10 minutes walk) and you can get to the sea in another ten minutes. There is a 15 minute bus to and from central Varna with beaches, shops and nightlife.
