Nature-loving people wanted to
Learn and experience how to provide for themselves in many fields by using self-sufficiency
SPECIAL THIS YEAR!!! LOOKING FOR LONG STAY HELPERS Beginning of March - end of May 2021 (perhaps longer;-)))
I am looking to engage interested helpers, male or female, who want to and can be active on the farm at the beginning of the season.
It would be nice if you already have experience in garden work or mending of fences and are not averse to some physical work like cleaning the stables and sifting of compost. You might alternatively prefer to cook for our group and take care of the house work.
I am looking forward to hear from you;-))
I (Gabriele, 53) live on an idyllic and quiet organic farm (certified since 1985) which is located at the edge of woodland, with 8 hectares of meadows, permanent pastures and woods. We are in a triangle of Austria, near to Slovenia and Hungary.
There is a variety of animals that bustle about the farm. Besides chickens, ducks, sheep and goats, a few cows graze with their offspring on the pastures.
For self-sufficiency you will have the use of a large vegetable garden, a herb garden, fruit trees and vines. As there is no industry in the immediate vicinity a variety of wild herbs can be harvested.
There is a small joinery workshop on the farm, where you can make yourself useful if you are a joiner or carpenter. ;-))
“I want to start an animal - assisted therapy at the farm and therefore want to find a person, he/she, who would be interested to help me with the preparations to establish this business.”
INFO: There will be no activities with animal assistant therapy on this farm this year. (Covid 19 situation)
DIY and building projects
Creating/ Cooking family meals
Help around the house
I would like to pass on to you our decade of gained experience.
There is a copious library covering an all-round theme of agriculture at your disposal.
The gently hilly landscape with a moderate climate invites you to try a variety of bike tours and a large lake 4km away offers a welcome cooling off in summer.
If you like swimming, you will find Europe’s largest open air swimming pool with 23,000 square meters 12km away. You can also travel by canoe to Hungary on the close-by river and learn about the flora and fauna
So what do we expect from you?
We would be grateful to get a helping hand in -:
*️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️the house (cleaning and renovating)
*️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️the garden (weeding, planting, picking fruit and pruning)
*️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️with the animals (feeding, watering, mucking-out in wintertime and nurturing them
and wherever something needs to be processed, repaired, built or renovated.
There is always something to do - collect herbs - repair and move grazing field fences - cut firewood and stack it - help with the hay harvest etc.
An animal-assisted therapy is in the planning for the long term future on the farm and we will need all available help in any form.
