⭐️What’s With All The Californians In Southern Albania?
ALBANIA > Twenty minutes after we posted the last issue of JAB, Salad Farm Saranda, in southern Albania, got back to us answering our enquiry if they are still hiring for the upcoming season? They said yes, they need a restaurant manager, restaurant workers, gardeners, animal caretakers and general happy people! Great, but too late. JAB has been sent.
We’d addressed our message to Shawn - seemingly incorrectly - so when we spotted Shawn looking for staff for his farm in southern Albania in the lead up to this issue, we thought happy days and got back to Shawn/Not Shawn to confirm which vacancies are still open. Shawn/Not Shawn hasn’t got back to us and, looking again, Definitely Shawn owns Botë Farms and not Salad Farm. He, along with Kyle, decided to leave his busy LA lifestyle to create a place to enjoy the peace and beauty of the mountainous Albanian countryside near Saranda.
The people behind Salad Farm are also Californian natives, it says on their website. And according to a TripAdvisor review left by a worker from last season are actually called Vanessa and Paul - and referred to as Canadians! We’ve since hit a wrong button and accidentally tried to make an order, apologised and apologised again for getting their name wrong. They must think we’re idiots.
As we clearly can’t be trusted here, we suggest getting in touch with Salad Farm Saranda and asking if they do still want a restaurant manager, restaurant workers, gardeners, animal caretakers and general happy people? The more likely prospect is Botë Farms. Their more recent post means that they may well still need staff from mid May through Mid September. Don’t mention us.
