    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    In exchange, workawayers can learn and gain experience around animals, animal breeding, veterinary and riders can learn something from our know-how and make a meaningful contribution here. Culturally you can enjoy the diversity of life on the coast of the Black Sea and the surrounding regions.

  • Help

    Help

    Help us with the daily tasks on our farm with dairy cows, Black Angus cattle (Experience with this animals is required), daily care of our horses (Experience with horses is required). Those who are good with dogs can also take care of the guard dogs on the farm (Attention: this is not a job for 4-5 hours per day. We don't take workaways who only want to come for that).

    More interesting for us are helpers in agriculture. If you have knowledge in farming or you can repair agricultural machinery you are very welcome. The possibilities to help are endless; perhaps your abilities are right for one of the jobs.

    If you have previous knowledge, this is beneficial for both sides. A farm is a daily challenge. For experienced riders there is the opportunity to work with young horses. Those who would like to do some manual work are also welcome. One of our projects in the near future is the conversion of two buildings into horse barns, including the construction of paddocks and riding ground on this property. The mostly works carried out by companies, but for us there will certainly be enough work to do where we need help.
