  • Description


    Hi! Thank you for reading our profile. We are a small team of mushroom lovers, running a mushroom farm in a small village in Germany. We grow over 1000 kg of shiitake mushrooms weekly, which are a very heahlty and delicately flavored mushroom. We just got a little baby called; elise and are parttime taking care of Sanders first 3 children. We have a welcoming lovely cat named Suus, who will always be happy with some extra attention ;-) In the farm we have 2 paid workers to harvest the mushrooms.

    Workawayers are welcome to support wherever help is needed. Workawayers are living in a second house in the village that we renovated. You will have a private room with central heating, access to facilities shared with the other volunteers and workers.

    We all love to meet new people from all over the world to work with and spend some good time. The village where we live is located in a very beautiful forested area. So if you like hiking in nature this is the place to be!

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    It is interesting to see what kind of farm we have in the countryside of germany. We have some interesting projects that we are working on. On our farm we don't need workers from workaway to do a lot of work, but we like to get to know eachother and spend a nice time together. So if you are working here, there is a relaxed flow without any rush, but with a lot of fun....
    Just check it out!
