We are a family of two boys aged 2,5 and 4,5 yeras old and have started to passionately breed alpacas. Our vision is to turn the formerly farm property of our grandfathers into a self- sufficient living and working space and offer a great space to learn from each other. We love to be surrounded by like-minded people with a hands-on attitude who are comitted and serious. Drugs of any kind are not welcome. Even though a helping hand with animal care ist greatly appreciated this is not a day filling task since alpacas are by nature quite undemanding animals that most time of the day graze on the pasture land :) We mainly look for skilled craftsman for some eco-building projects, housekeeping and child care. We also look for people with some basic knowledge in German language that attend our farm visitors (on the weekends we sell handmade ice cream and offer small guided tours with alpacas as well as short farm visits).
