Région: SaxonyWe are Florian Schneider and Odilia Jarman with our daughters Maia (2) and Saskia (8) (with Rumi (12) in the holidays). We speak mostly English together on the farm but are all fluent German speakers. French, Spanish and Dutch can also be communicated to a degree! Our placeis situated in a small village (Sohland am Rotstein) in the heart of Upper Lusatia, approximately 30km from the Czech and Polish borders. There are many long distance walking routes, round tours and cycling paths in the area, a plethora of lakes and woodland, as well as mountain hiking territory within an hour's drive of the farm. The medieval towns of Görlitz, Löbau, Bautzen and Zittau are all easily accessible by train and provide numerous site-seeing opportunities as well as regular cultural events. The proximity of Poland and the Czech Republic add to the experience of being in the middle of Europe. We have two and a half hectares of arable land on the east face of the Rotstein – Saxony's oldest nature reserve, established in 1912. This area was conventionally managed until recently by the local farming cooperative. It has been measured off and returned to us since August 2012. This year we will seed it with green manure to assist its' regeneration for the next couple of years. We also have plans to begin planting a hedge around its outer borders in autumn 2013, using indigenous shrubs and trees to create a wildlife habitat as well protection against errosion. An additional hectare of land surrounds the farm buildings, over half of which is pasture. The rest hosts many established trees including Walnut, Apple, Pear, Cherry and Plum as well as Birch, Larch and a stunning single crown of three Lindens. A vegetable garden and polytunnel have seen one very good season through and our plan is to gradually expand production this year. The fruit trees were abundant last year, and we even had a crop of peaches! A stream runs along the eastern border – the Schwarze Schöps – whose source is nearby and which eventually ends up in the North Sea. On the ground floor of the main farm building we are creating a family kitchen as well as an approved food processing room. We are both keen food enthusiasts and love experimenting with food. The summer and autumn of 2012 saw a great deal of tomato preserves, chilli sauces, jams and pickles. We currently have five sheep, seven hens and a cockerel. They will breed this year and we are also looking to get a pair of milking animals in the near future. Two female cats complete the family.

We are 6 km up from town and about 50 km from Turin city center. Although we have a lot of interests, the running and maintenance of our B&B, and all that entails, keeps us busy. We try to incorporate our interests into our work to keep things interesting. We have 2 cats that have adopted us. They are allowed in our private home, but not throughout the whole building as our guests could be allergic. Our whole home and public buildings and guest rooms are smoke free.We created an association, TEM, to promote ecological and sustainable tourism in our mountain community. We also promote local small businesses, artisans and organic producers through our cooking classes as well as homestyle meals with our guests.
