  • Description

    Description

    We are a small educational farm, producing for ourselves as well as for courses. Teaching students where food comes from, and how it gets to the table, everything from milking goats, cheese making, baking bread to forging for edible plants. Our farm has been in the family for four generations. We are always building renewing, regenerating and of course growing. We are working on 5 hectares of land. Producing our own milk, meat, eggs, fruit, vegetables and tea. All organic :). We have two children (5 and 3) and have a beautiful piece of property surrounded by forrest and meadows. Only 1 hour south of Prague which can be easily reached by public transportation.

    We enjoy meeting new people, and look forward to working with you!

    Winter/Spring 2018:
    We have recently purchased the neighbouring property. The house after some renovation will be used to host more volunteers as well as students during courses. Tasks on this property would included, cleaning, painting, assisting in installing a bathroom, removing overgrown shrubs from the garden, cutting down trees. As well as assisting with renovation of a trailer.
    Also caring for our animals

    Spring/Summer:
    maintaining garden beds, care with animals: feeding and cleaning, picking flowers to dry for tea, harvesting, assisting with preserving harvest, drying and canning.

    We are happy to work with our volunteers in finding a balance in what needs to be done, and what skills and interests the volunteers bring. A creative mural is always welcomed, as well as attractive signs.

    Our ideal volunteer:
    - someone who at least shares a small interest in our way of life
    - is interested and enjoys working outside and is respectful to animals
    - is self motivated and is able to work independently on tasks,
    - is social and is able to work well with others,
    - is able to communicate with others and express needs or problems.
    - has a positive attitude
    - is able to live in a group environment with other adults and children.

    If this sounds like you, and you would like to be a part of our farm, please contact us.

    Accommodation

    In exchange for your work and keen attitude, we offer all food and accommodation and will treat you as a family member.

    Food:
    Our kitchen is yours to use, and is always stocked with food.
    We eat our own meat and eggs,- fruits and vegatables during the summer months. We try to eat from the farm as much as possible. But of course during the winter months we must go to a store.
    We are meat eaters and eat a local diet, we have no problem adapting to a vegetarian diet, but through experience a vegan diet is stressful for us. I spend so much and energy trying to figure out what to cook. So unless you are willing to cook all meals for 10- then it's best you choose another placement.

    Also one note for food: If you have any individual dietary needs, such as lactose free, or gluten free or prefer one of these diets- you will need to purchase these food products on your own ex. soya products, tofu, almond milk, ex.... We have fresh goat and buffalo milk here unlimited quantity. Please also alert us to any allergies.

    During the week- Monday- Friday. Breakfast and Lunch are self-serve. Hot dinner together.
    During the weekends- At least two hot meals together each day.

    *️️️️️️️️️️️ We try rotate the responsibilties of cooking amoung all those in the house who are interested in cooking :). We enjoy eating dishes from around the world. Those who aren't cooking can assist with the clean up.

    Accommodation:
    When staying with us we provide all sheets, blankets, pillows and towels.

    Types of accommodation:
    2- Private rooms in house,
