Privet from our family! come and help in our organic farm!
I have an apiary (farm) in an amazing place of Russian Federation, in Bashkortostan Republic. People compare Bashkortostan to Switzerland, indeed it has got incredible virgin nature! Bashkortostan is a unique place and our way of living is different, our language and culture are outstanding. This experience will be unforgettable for you!
I work in the farm with my family and volunteers. I'm always ready to welcome you and to give place to stay and live.
We always look for extra hands and for new friends, if you are planning to come and visit us, you are welcome, write me at any time, i will try to answer as soon as possible.
The history of our farm started 35 years ago, since childhood I've loved honey and as we were 8 children in the family, my parents couldn't buy honey as much i would like to . I tried myself in many jobs, but found myself in beekeeping, i started with one beehive, and now the farm grew up . My family helps me with the bees, my son wants to be a beekeeper and we call him little beekeeper. He's also very friendly :)
Beekeeping has become my hobby, now I can't imagine my life without bees, and the table without honey. I've become professional in beekeeping and I would like to share my experience with my volunteers too.
We invite volunteers during the year, you are going to live in a wooden ecological cabin. There is traditional Russian banya, our traditional food, from our farm you can see mountains,about 10 km away nature reserves and caves, also our area is full of lakes, rivers and forests. When we have 2 or 3 volunteers in our farm in June and August we make trip to the caves. The forests and mountains are breathtaking there! You are gonna love it!
We've invited volunteers from all over the world, from Brazil, Norway, Russia, USA, Switzerland, France, Germany, Italy etc.
Depending on the month the work can be different. We also have some animals like cow and chicken. You can choose to help with garden work if you want also :) The garden isn't very big.
Me and my family are ready to welcome you!
P.S. my daughter answers the emails, her name is Gulsina. She informs all the family about volunteers.
Also note that family doesn't speak English. But don't hesitate to write In English :)
