We are a family of six that moved from Tallinn, the capital of Estonia, to the countryside. Our family includes four children: Karl-Alex(14), Ithaka-Mirell(4), Kelly-Marite(2), Stig-Johannes (1), parents Egon(32) and Triinu(30). Our ambitions are to organically grow our own food and create a self-sustaining farm.
We grow livestock that we take care of and will partly bring food to our table. We prefer to avoid using motorvehicles and use horses instead for farm-work, there's also an option for horseback riding as a leisure activity. In addition to horses, we have: free range chickens and ducks, goats and milking cow, 2 dogs and a kittys. All animals are fed organically and no pesticides are used in our root vegetable garden. Farm that we live in is atleast 150 years old, which we are in progress of renovating using natural materials.

We are looking for help in our daily tasks of, feeding animals, maintaining vegetable garden and renovating the house. Every morning and evening we need to milk a cow and give food fore animals. Then we will do our daily job. Triinu usually go to the garden or green house and take care of kids and Egon will do work with horse and then renovate the house.
