  • Description

    Description

    We are a young couple in our thirties, in our first year of our adventure in Bulgaria. We have bought a property, that used to be a cow farm. We are currently renovating the house and outbuildings as well as slowly building up our small holding. We have 8 dogs, goats, rabbits, quails, calves and chickens so far. We're looking to be self sufficient, perma culture orientated stewards of the land.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Benefits of coming to our small holding are living in a picturesque village on foot of the Black Mountains near the Black Sea. There are 60 people registered in our remote village. It's a place of outstanding natural beauty surrounded by hills, rivers and lakes. We are an hour away from Burgas, where you can enjoy all the amenities of a big city, and also beaches / parks / cultural events. We speak basic Bulgarian.

  • Help

    Help

    We are looking for enthusiastic people, that are willing to turn their hands on most things (building, renovating the outbuildings to guest accommodation, fencing, help with animals, gardening, general help with establishing the small holding in its early days). We are in the process of building a new barn our of dry stone, to accommodate our animals. We are half way through and looking for someone to help with that or to look after the animals so we have more time to spend on the building.
