Hello and thank you for being interested in our profile :-)
We, Thomas and Heike, are a couple that moved to the North Sea to live our dream. We live on a farm near Carolinensiel,only 700 meters away from the sea. We are friendly, humorous, communicative and very interested in other cultures :-).
Before you continue reading please notice two absolute neccessities to be with us: you have to have some basics in the German language. It is not neccessary to speak fluent, but for the communication with our holiday-guests, our friends, visitors and us you have to understand and speak some German. The second aspect is that we have only place and work for one person.
Please respect these two conditions and don`t contact us if you don`t understand and speak some German and if you are looking for two persons!! Thank you!
We own 8 Llamas, 3 Alpacas, 3 goats, 2 ponys, cats and dogs. We rent holiday apartements at our farm and our holiday guests are always people who love animals and nature. We also conduct pedagocical and therapeutical work with our animals, especially for people with mental and physical disorders.
If you want to spent some time with us, you can learn a lot about the handling and training of animals and how to treat them appropriate to the species. It would be nice if you like cooking, we like it very much to taste some typical meals you prefer to cook :-)
In the winter months, some work in the house and in the holiday- apartments are to do: Replace flooring, wallpaper walls and painting walls. If you have skills in these areas and if you like the North Sea in the stormy winter: send us a message :-).
You will have your own room and we will give you 3 meals a day (Breakfast, fruits, bread or something like this for lunch and warm dinner). You can use our bicycles if you want to make trips around the countryside!
This can be an awesome place for you to spend some time, you will discover how typical pet owner live, you will feel like you are on Holidays, because of the great location directly to the sea.
It doesn`t matter if you are a smoker, but there is only one room in the house in which it is allowed to smoke ;-)!
Cooking / shopping
Help in the house
Our workaways have a direct connection to us. We live together under one roof, work and cook together and have our meals together. We take them with us to our friends if they want and they can come with us if we make a trip. Important for us is the communication, we like to talk about the way of life in different countries and cultures. Our workaways by themselves learn here a lot about German culture and historie, about respect and care for animals and about the possibilities for a happy, harmonic and good livestyle. And of course they learn how to spend time away from big cities :-).
You can help us:
- with the animals ( training, feeding an so on)
- the maintenance and repair of the barn and the farmhouse.
- Help in the house and in the holiday apartements
You will have your own room and access to a bathroom. Your room is smokeless.
We are looking for volunteers to help with the animals, in the house and with tourists. From November to February we also need help for renovating the house, for help in the stable and in the household.
