  • Beschreibung


    We are a young Dutch-German family, living in the south-west of Germany. We have two children (born 2012 and 2015) going to a German school/kindergarten. In 2017, we moved from Holland to Germany to start our organic cheese farm. In summer 2018, we finally started milking the cows. Now we are producing certified organic cheese, yoghurt and other milk products as well as beef sausages that we sell at our farm and at local markets. We are working together with local companies and also sell organic cheese that we buy from other farms. In September 2020, we expect to open our own dairy and produce all milk products right here on our property. Besides that, we are constantly busy with constructing and renovating the 200-year-old farm.

    The farm is located next to a forest with lots of open space around, but also close to the city of Kaiserslautern (20km). The nearest train station is in the village of Enkenbach-Alsenborn (3km).

    There is always a lot of work and different things to do at our farm, so we appreciate any help we can get. Caring for our horses, walking with our donkeys, maintaining the vegetable/herbal garden, renovation and construction work - these are just a few examples of how we could use your help. You will see how we make our dairy products.

    At the farm we mainly speak German and Dutch. We also speak English quite well, except for the children, who can count to ten in English and are keen to learn some more words ;-)

    In terms of accommodation, we can offer our workawayers two options. We have a nice caravan with two double beds on one of the willows, and a small room with a single bed in the main house. The shared bathroom and kitchen are always open for everyone to use. We are happy to cook and share our meals together, and – if the weather allows – sit around a bonfire and exchange thoughts and stories after a hard day’s work.

    Would you like to learn a different language (German or Dutch), new skills, and experience another culture? Do you like working at an ambitious new farm, in a beautiful setting, together with a young open-minded family? Then you are most welcome in any period! :-)

    If you have any questions, do not hesitate to get in touch and ask. As we are always very busy working on our farm, we may not reply instantly, but will get in touch as soon as we can.

    We're looking forward to meet you!

    By joining our family and everyday life, you will learn about Dutch and German culture, about similarities and differences, and we ourselves are also open for new ideas and how our helpers look at things. By interacting with the other workers helping on our farm and the local community you will also get different cultural insights.

  • Arbeit


    We can always use help in construction works and renovation at the farm. So, if you like to build, repair or paint things, you could really help us out. If that’s not your favorite line of work, there is a lot of other things we can use your help with: Caring for our animals, mucking out the stables, walking with our donkeys and mapping hiking trails for visitors, feeding the horses/chicken/rabbits/dogs, maintaining the vegetable greenhouse and herbal garden, picking cherries, cutting the weeds, setting up fences around the pastures, chopping wood, taking care of our two lovely kids and generally helping with the household. As we live on a busy farm, we generally appreciate helpers who don’t shy away from physical work and are open to different tasks they can help with. While some of these need to be done according to our daily schedule, others can be handled more flexibly, depending on your talents and personal interests.

    Was noch ...

    We live in a beautiful setting with a lot of nature around. Exploring the surroundings by bike, hiking or on horses is a great possibility. The are some villages and the larger city of Kaiserslautern nearby where you can get to by train or car. There is a lot of contact with the local communities, and we like to organise events on our farm for them when the time allows. Our kids enjoy their freedom on the farm and like to play all day when they are not at school or kindergarten. We appreciate the good moments together, but also mind own space and privacy when needed. We are generally open-minded towards other cultures and religions and like to exchange thoughts about life.
