  • Description


    we are two families living and working on an organic farm. The farm is located in western Germany near the cities Cologne (about 60 km), Düsseldorf (40 km) and Wuppertal (10 km). We are on this farm since February 2010 and still developing it in a way we would like to live and work here.
    On our farm there are 90 chicken, 20 cows, 8 pigs. From spring on we will plant vegetables, too. We are selling our products by our own delivery service and in a cafe located on the farm.

    If you like you can learn some stuff about organic farming, caring for animals and vegetables. Certainly we can talk German if you like to improve your German language skills. And you will meet some quite nice people, I think.

    What else ...

    The surrounding cities offer a lot of museums an theaters and what ever you like. Our place is quite rural but the next train station is only 4 kilometers away. From there you reach the cities Wuppertal and Essen directly. To Düsseldorf it takes about 40 minutes and to Cologne about one hour by train.
