Farm is housing 3 of us with 1 dog, 2 cats, 8 Morgan horses, two cows, 5 Nubian goats, few chickens, 2 ducks, 1 piggy the pet and lots of birds, frogs, bats and deer. We were told, we are living in paradise. Yes we do live in the paradise constantly growing. We have gardening and building projects. Fences always needs repairs and land needs landscaping.

    Kultureller Austausch und Lernmöglichkeiten

    In last 7 years we had many volunteers from all around the world staying with us from 2 weeks to 8 months. It was a nice experience to learn from them and their learning from us, about our fully sustainable life style here on the farm/ranch. Living with animals is very rewarding and life learning experience.

    Arbeit

    Every day we have to feed our animals so that mean no free weekend but we do have free hours every day. Sometime we just feed animals and sometime we work till project is finished. ..meaning sometime there is a more work and sometime is less. On the farm with animals chores are always unpredictable. We do organic gardening, manufacture organic fertilizers (no manures). Somettime we have to fix fencing or make new one. We want to make shelters for our horses and cows. Horses do have their rooms in the building but outside shelters would be nice. We have some new buildings that we work on to finnish so there is opportunity to learn carpentry skills. We do collect firewood and falling the trees. We have also started offering farm stay accommodations for tourists so we have guests on the farm. Mostly families with children.
