    Description

    Dear workawayers, if you're interested in staying with us please have a look at our calendar before writing us a message. We also appreciate if you write us a personal message.

    We live on a little farm in Menzberg, a small village in the backcountry of Luzern. Our farm is on 1000 metres, near the Napf, our little local Mountain. There is a beautiful scenery and a lot of hiking- possibilities up here:-)
    We are a milk farm and there are also chickens and cats around.

    We, family Bussmann, are 5 people, the parents and 3 youths from 25 to 34 years. But nowadays the young people come and go and there are often just a few of us home.

    We are looking for helpers all year, in summer the main work is haymaking, in winter working in the forest. But there is also a lot of other things to do like maintaining buildings, gardening, housekeeping, feed the animals, cooking... It all depends on the time of the year, your skills... But all you don't know yet you can learn here. Since our property is quite steep there is besides the machine work a lot of hand work left. So you can learn how traditional farming works in Switzerland.
