    update February 2024:
    we are looking forward to the new workaway season in spring from the end of march/ April onwards. We are happy to share what we have and get help an company here!

    Besides, we are planning our yearly summer camping trip, we have been finding great housesitters here on workaway for the last 4 years, and we hope to be lucky also this year as being on the road is simply freedom for us :-)
    We`d like to be on tour from around mid July onwards for 3 weeks.
    We need someone who can take care for our veggie garden, mawing the lawn, feeding the chickens and taking care for our friendly 14 year old dog (who ist still very fit, luckily..).
    A well stocked larder and freezer is waiting for you, as well as a cosy old camper, lots of peace and nature and friendly neighbours!

    Hello there!

    We're Alex, Jan, Arthur, Alma and Auguste Heuer. We are in our beginning 40s, 8, 5 and 3. (our kids are born in 2013, 2016 and 2018).
    We live on our farm (4000m²) in Kirchenfeld/ Penkun, eastern Germany.

    Our goal WAS to become (almost) self-sufficient minifarmers. In Summer 2021 we realized, thet three kids and a houserenovation is plenty and that gardening/farming must be reduced to a minimum. We still keep chickens (mainly for nostalgic reasons and eggs) and are growing few vegetables. In the past we have had sheep, pigs, ducks, rabbits, cats and one dog. Our dog recently died after having 15 years here with us.


    We take responsibility for the world around us, so whatever we buy, we try to go for organic and fair trade products.

    We try to avoid plastic as far as possible and stay away from flavour enhancers, preservatives and a lot of other additives from modern chemistry. We shop local produce or swap it in our LETS (Local Exchange Trading Systems or Schemes) – and also use it as a source for social contacts.

    We don't have WiFi because we believe there's enough radiation around already. There are LAN-cables ready for your device and a internet-laptop in the kitchen for you to use.

    Since we have a little child, we are pretty occupied, so we won't be around most of the evenings, that means, you have to be comfortable with aloneness.

    We realize, that we ask for a lot of commitment (four weeks), but we all (kids and adults) need the consistency.
    We want you to benefit from your stay, so we happily pass on our knowledge and experiences. Give you room for your own experiments and won’t be breathing down your neck. We will do our best to give you the best possible experience – please talk to us about your wishes and expectations.

    With three kids joyfully messing up the place on a daily basis , we need you to have an eye for(on) things that need to be done (cleaned, tidied up). (Autobiographical note: I (Jan) sometimes need a reminder, that I’m on team “tidying” - can’t have another one like me/this. I’m trying ;-))




    We have three old but clean caravans. You also have a separate bathroom in one of the stables, so privacy is guaranteed.

    We always need your help minding the kids, with housekeeping and with gardening/farming, so you should be comfortable holding a child, a shovel, a broom etc. Above that you're welcome to contribute with any other skill that you have (DIY, fixing things, building etc.) (Optional: We might even ask you to housesit for a few days.)

    What is probably important for you as well: as we live out in the sticks, there are no shops or pubs around.
    The next town with 2000 inhabitants is 4 km away, there’s a drinks store, a tiny grocery store, a pharmacy, a flower shop, a bakery and a restaurant. That’s all :-P

    We order a lot of our groceries online, but we still need to go shopping physically to Prenzlau (25km) or Szczecin/Stettin (Poland; 30km). If you need anything you may of course join us or we pick something up for you.



    A little bit about ourselves:

    Alex comes from a little town near Stuttgart and I was raised near Hamburg.

    We met in Tromsø, Norway in 2006, where Alex studied biology and I (kind of) studied philosophy. We were brought together by our love for heavy metal music and have been together ever since.
    Alex went back to Tromsø twice to finish her diploma. The last time, I joined her and made our living by guiding tourists. Meanwhile I had grown tired of philosophy and canceled my studies. Nowadays I dabble with art. I’m currently trying to get enough sculptures ready to fill a room and call it “exhibition”

    After Alex got her degree, we moved (back) to Hamburg together. We soon grew tired of the hasty city-lifestyle and decided to move to the countryside. We found the place we are currently living in and fell in love with it at first sight. The house had not much but potential and we started to make it a home right away.
    We basically emptied the house, did the water-installation and electricity and started to form everything to our liking. In 2014 we finally got a new roof and the outside of the house plastered.

    Still there’s a lot to be done, most prominently and urgently the attic, but we got kids and started farming…

    We always need help with the normal housekeeping, such as minding the kids, cooking, cleaning, feeding the animals, heating the stoves (winter), chopping wood, walking the dog, tidying up, cleaning the stable...

    For the summer there will be a bit of gardening, harvesting fruits and vegetables, and much more..
    We expect a minimum stay of 6 weeks.

    Of course it is great if you bring skills like building , farming, experiences with carpentry or any other type of mechanical art, but it is NOT mandatory at all.



    Hope to see you soon, Alex and Jan
