  • Description


    We own two beautiful lots in North Spain (10.000 m2 Apple Orchard + 7.000 m2 upper field) and a beautiful house in Cantabria. We have started to create a self-sustainable farm and are hoping for your help with carrying on this work.

    We own 4 Arabian horses, 1 Welsh Pony, and one cute little foal! All of them, except one, are ridden. We also own a few dogs and cats and our neighbors have cows and sheep.

    We are a family which decided to live off-grind and commute between Germany and Spain occasionally. We love meeting new people who can teach us valuable new skills. We are hard working people, but also enjoy learning new things. :)
