  • Beschreibung


    We're Silke (29) and Hauke (33) and moved back to our home in Elsfleth, Germany. We're going to take care of the nature reserve being established on the peninsula between the rivers Weser and Hunte, are creating our natural, sustainable farm within it and aim to live here self-sufficiently and remotely.

    Silke’s family has been farming the peninsula for 4 generations, recently it had been an organic cattle farm which stopped in 2019, and we're willing to continue the family history in this unique place, although the methods shall be different, more nature-friendly, and there's no intention of selling products:
    - Natural, regenerative farming, no till, no machines
    - Composting, scythe mowing, mulching
    - Diversity, diversity, diversity, creating a vivid, edible landscape providing us, our animals and wildlife with healthy food
    - Farm animal welfare and housing (chickens and milk sheep)
    - Permacultural practices, reuse, recycle, upcycle
    - Open-minded, creative, artisanal, you can bring and start your own projects (don't worry, our minds are filled with ideas, as well)
    - Community approach, sharing, exchanging, engaging

    You are welcome to join us, live with us, learn from us and have fun with us, enjoying this beautiful place. There are many possibilities for outdoor activities like cycling, hiking, swimming, beach/sun-bathing, kayaking/paddling and the North Sea/Wadden Sea isn't far. Bigger cities easily reachable are Oldenburg and Bremen.

    Just get in touch if you're interested :)

    Kultureller Austausch und Lernmöglichkeiten

    We have spent much time traveling, meeting people in foreign countries and from other cultures which inspired us a lot. Additionally, we studied alternative, regenerative, natural farming practices and volunteered at other pioneering farms. Thus, we got ideas and solutions for a more sustainable lifestyle close to nature, have put some into practice already and are willing to develop and improve. So, in exchange with you we can learn from each other while being creative.
    And of course, we can show you around and/or give you advice for your leisure time.
