    Description

    Hi,
    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.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    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.

    Help would be useful in any way you can imagine. You can plant and harvest vegetables, care for the animals, cook for everybody or fall in love with our weed whacker.

    The rooms we can offer are quite simple. But in the big old farm house you will find everything you need to feel comfortable (kitchen, bath, shower).

    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.
