  • Description



    we have an organic farm and a social project for more than 20 years, and now as most of our children left the house we are happy to receive some volunteers, share our knowledge and have some hands to help on our projects.

    We live in a small village in the beautiful landscape close to the Alps and the Chiemsee in southeast of Bavaria.
    We have a big house with more or less 10 people living there at the moment, a small lake, nice places to relax and lots of space.

    We got a big garden with lots of fruits and vegetables, we make bread, have a pizza oven, in summer we do lots of barbecues.
    Besides we got a few animals as cows, ducks, turckeys (for organic meat), a horse, a donkey, chicken, 3 sheep and 2 goats, bees and a sweet cat.

    Besides we got a project for people who are in crisis or have psychological problems. Usually 1 to 3 persons live with us at the farm in the family.

    It is important for you to know that it is quite difficult to get to the house, as the public transport is bad.
    The next train station is 20 min in car, obviously we can fetch you there.
    We go to the cities and villages around quite often by car and can take you.

    If you like to live in a beautiful and quiet place and learn about organic farming, welcome to our farm "Lebenshof"! :-)
