  • Description

    Description

    We are a open mind familiy with three children (born on the 2012, 2014, 2017). We are use to have regulary visitors and are interesting in new encounters, diversified conversations and to get a new view of life.
    Our timbered house is over 200 years old and has some building sites, which we complete step by step.
    We live next to a little nature preserve (Elsteraue), where it's nice for a walk and enjoy the nature.
    Otherwise we have a shop in the next big city Zeitz (10 km), where we sell organic food from other organic farmers and other stuff from ecological cultivation. On our farm also live a dog, cats and chicken.
