We are also looking for long-term volunteers! (Few months - upto a year)
I am pregnant with a due date in June 2022 and my pregnancy changed and influenced our plans as I haven't been able to work as before during my pregnancy. Luckily we have had enough volunteers to help us around the animals and also we decided to employ one fulltime helper, Lenka who we first met here on workaway, now she is part of the family! :)
We are a vegan couple from Slovakia that met in the main town (Bratislava) and shortly after decided to leave it together and find a home in the beautiful nature of middle Slovakia. We found amazing old secluded settlement in the woods and knew it's the perfect home for us. It will take us few years to finish the reconstructions and to move there. We also plan to build a retreat centre there. For the time we'll be reconstructing we bought a nice countryside house in the village Sucháň, were we currently live and somehow started a vegan rescue farm. :) Ooops. Currently we have 4 male goats, 2 female goats, 3 rams, two sheep, 3 rabbits, 3 roosters and two dogs.

We promise a lot of love from our animals, for us they are the best therapists. :) We'll teach you how to make a lot of delicious vegan dishes, and help you reconnect with the nature and yourself. We own a lot of art supplies which we'll also gladly share with you. We often recycle things and give them a new life, you'll learn to create lot of things yourself at home, which saves nature and money. :) And something tells me after u'll be leaving us, u can start a fence building business, as we need to make new fences all the time because of our animals... <3
Dieses Projekt schließt möglicherweise den Umgang mit Kindern ein. Mehr Informationen findest du in unseren Verhaltensregeln und Tipps hier.
Currently we need help with following projects:
• ANIMAL CARE - daily animal routine takes around 8hours a day for 1 person, so it's great when we have more people helping with it :)
Animal care includes
▪︎cleaning the stables daily
▪︎cleaning the dry goats and sheep's enclosure few times a day
▪︎cleaning the rabbits cages twice a day
▪︎once a week cleaning the roosters house
▪︎feeding all the animals twice a day
▪︎providing a clean water and hay for the animals throughout the day
▪︎playing with the animals
▪︎ helping with animals that need a special treatment, hooves trimming, wool shearing - don't worry, unless you are a pro zootechnitian, you'd be helping to hold the animals or distract them only :)
▪︎giving them a lot of love and while doing so, you can also brush their furry coats :)
▪︎and probably much more that I forgot.. oh, yes, watching the animals which aren't supposed to meet or stay alone together. Like our rooster Coco who likes to attack rabbits and Charlie (dog) for fun, but sometimes it may lead to fight. Coco is good with the people and often hangouts with us also indoors, it's just he needs to show the other animals he is the boss here. :)
• we are building a greenhouse from recycled windows, the roof is finished but there is lot more work on it - on going project for a year! now, still not done as we had other priorities
• protecting plants and 🌳trees from the animals 🙈
• building a water well
• renovation works on the secluded settlement
Me and David are working from home, but we still need a lot of time for our money earning jobs, so we can provide for everyone and everything. That's why we really value highly independent people and fast learners!

1. We offer you our guest room which has it's own toilet and separate entrance. The guestroom doesn't have a shower, but you can use the shower in our bathroom anytime.
2. Tiny summer guest house - preferably only usable during the warmer months as it isn't insulated enough for staying warm enough during the coldest winter nights, although there is a wood owen. There's also a shower and a sink with a hot water as well. Toilet isn't built yet, we are thinking about adding a composting toilet inside or dry toilet outside next to the guest house.
■To be willing to stay on a VEGAN DIET IS A MUST. Please, out of respect for our rescued animals and our work, don't bring any animal products here. (Yep, it happened before.)
■You can borrow bicycles anytime
■ We recommend visiting historical town of Banská Štiavnica which is only 45 minutes driving from our place, we will help you plan a trip there if you'd like. It's considered to be the most beautiful town in Slovakia.
■You can borrow the car when we don't need it.

If you can work from home, good for you! We are working from home or our favourite garden office too! You'll have your own wifi at your room.
You can be parking in front of our house, there's also a huge parking lot which belongs to the town hall and it's possible to use it if you are large. One family that came on a truck with additional trailer which made together 15m long house on wheels parked there for 3 weeks once. If you have smaller van you can decide where to stay, you can also park at the top of our garden and enjoy privacy and very dark nights.
If you have a dog it has to be trainable not to chase and hunt our animals. We managed to train our dogs ourselves and we can provide a dog training guidance and advice. Cats are more problematic as we don't have any and our dogs only know the wild ones or neighbour's cats that come to provoke them.
