  • Description

    Description

    We couple, son 11 and dog like to have help on our farm. The region where we live is called "Wendland" it is a part of north-east lower saxony. Hamburg and Berlin are 2 to 3 driving- hours away the next railway station is in Salzwedel.
    We are nurse and male nurse part- time working.
    Our farm is a self- sufficiency farm, we have pigs, rabbits, chicken, and we are breeders of the "Bentheimer Landschaf" an old north german sheep race.
    We have a garden and two greenhouses to produce veggies.
    The farmhouse was built in 1890 and there is still a lot of renovating work to do.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    The area where we live is a very rural part of northern Germany.
    There´s a lot of nature to "explore" around our village . Salzwedel and Lüchow are small towns close to our place with shops, cinema and some bars.
    We have four horses, one of them is ridable to nearly everybody. So you can out-ride or take your first riding lesson. Two lakes are by car less than 15 minutes away, for swimming in summer.
    It´s a good area for cycling here. (you can borrow our cycles.)
    We want you to become a part-time part of our farm and our communtiy.

    If you are a musician you´re welcome. Even drummers :-)

    We ask you to stay at least for a week.
