    Welcome on our little farm in Schmalfelden, a village in the south of Germany. I live together with my parents Klaus (55) and Martina (50) and grandparents Elsa (83) and Richard (83) on the ranch. My grandparents are living on the ranch and they could need now and then a hand to help. Because of this it would be usefull to speak conversational german.

    About me (25):
    - I am working as a mechanical engineer
    - I play guitar and piano
    - I love horses (often I go to a friend to work with her horses. You are warmly welcome to join me.)
    - I made my own workaway experience in USA and Canada

    About Elsa (83) - my grandma:
    - she grows the best tomatoes and cucumbers
    - has excellent baking skills
    - sometimes a little bit hard of hearing
    - likes to sew
    - she loves to care about her flowers in the garden and house
    - ....

    About Richard (83) - my grandpa:
    - always comes up with new ideas of handicraft work
    - is good at repairing all sorts of things (even when everyone else thinks it's not repairable;))
    - likes to make his own liqueur with fruits from the garden
    - has always a joke to tell
    - ....

    About Martina (53) - my mum:
    - is a bit shy of speaking english ;)
    - she loves singing and also plays guitar
    - she would also like to cook some regional food or bake together with you ( If you like cooking or baking you can show her some recipes from your home :)

    About Klaus (57)- my dad:
    - he loves to bike ( you are welcome to join him, with pleasure he shows you the best places in the area)
    - makes the best steaks on earth :D


    The farm:
    Our farm has a big garden where you can relax in summer.
    We have rabbits, chicken, cats and fields where potatoes and carrots, strawberry ...are grown.
    Of course you can also eat all the fruits and vegetables (depending on the season) and eggs from our chickens.

    The village:
    Schmalfelden has about 200 inhabitants. The next shops to buy groceries are 5 min away by car. There is no opportunity nearby to go partying like a disco. But in summer there are a lot of activities in the villages and cities reachable with the bicycle. If I meet some friends you also can join me. So there should be enough opportunities for your leasure time.

    My parents are going to make a four-week-bicycle tour, so I could need some help at home. It would be perfect if you have a international driving licence, but it's not a must have.

    Examples:
    - garden chores
    - helping Richard repairing things on the farm
    - small household tasks
    - watering plants
    - bring the wood from the forest to the ranch
    - cut wood
    - painting walls
    - feeding animals (cats, rabbits, chickens ...)
    - help cooking
    - grocery shopping with Elsa
    - help Elsa and Richard with their Tablets
    - help Martina learn english
    - restoration projects

    Those are just a few examples on where you can help, but we are flexible whatever you are interested in or what skills you have:)
    Also the hours are flexible, it could be that some days you have to help more than 4 hours and other days you get a day off because there is nothing to do.
    If you want to do a longer trip , of course we can make an arrangement that you will get a few more days off:) I would love to show you the beautiful nature and cities nearby.

    Was noch ...

    I could bring you to the next train or busstation by car so you can visit on your days off bigger cities nearby like Würzburg, Nürnberg, Heidelberg, Stuttgart ....

    Not far from our village are also nice places to see like Rothenburg ob der Tauber, Langenburg and Weikersheim.
    Definitely you could also borrow one of our bikes to explore and enjoy the surrounding and landscape in your freetime.

    Last year we had a very nice workaway experiance on our farm. Dancing Salsa, visiting Würzburg and Rothenburg ob der Tauber, barbecueing ... :) I wanna have this back.
