  • Description


    Actually: we are full already at least for the whole year 2023... thanks for that - to all new Volunteers and all that come back this year 🙏🍀🌳🍂🍃🕊 ♥️♥️♥️
    We are a 3-member family Jasmin (39) making ceramics and Walter (58) Mechanic and our little 11 year old daughter.
    About us and our Farmlife:
    We would call ourselves a fair and nature bonded Family that loved or still loves travelling around the world, that´s why we are hosting people from all over the world :-D it gives us the feeling of being abroad but settled down here :)
    we try to give our best to live sustainable- in summer we grow our own veggies around the house in our small gardens ...grow our own chicken and get eggs from them we live on our small old farm with our 4 adorable, cosy, friendly Lamas, our 4 incredible love-giving goats

    First of all- we are learning with every Person that visits us- learning is never over- and we are really happy about that

    We search two different Typs of helpers:
    Those ones that are good in Projects- like
    --->Craftsmanship, such as painting, fence repairs, or the design of the workshop or the garden, are continually falling.
    Making paths, carpentrys, are good in Stone paths, cutting trees... or text us what you are good in

    ---->Or those ones that are good in helping me with the daily Routine: then...

    In case of an exchange, there is simply an spontaneous working alone or together where there is just need for man -
    most of the time mixed up with the daily routine that has to be done feeding the animals or cleaning the stable (around 30 min per day), helping in the garden, or with simple jobs in the pottery...
    ....and the skills you bring
    as as the interests you have -everyday is different ;-) - our regular work is depending on the season-

    --->Mostly you work from around 8.00 until lunch which is at 13:00 -
    so... free afternoon to explore the nice area 5d/week

    -We are really thankful People and try our best that you feel comfortable here
    Jasmin is cooking every day during week - you can cook yourself or take as much food as you want from the fridge. :-D
    our daughter is strictly vegetarian, there is always enough veg. food, we eat everything

    -If all that sounds nice for you then we would love to host you for a longer time also :-) minimum stay is two weeks-

    We love nature and it´s important to see our child to be connected to nature, with a feeling for respect for other beings and cultural exchange is very important to us, whether by our own travels or many of our friends from all around the world. We try to respect environment and are constantly learning how we can take a bit more care of it, to keep our own footprint small ------>We love discussions at the fireplace, making music, playing drums ...

    If time allowes we go hiking in the Mountains once on the weekend- or visit a special place around- and are happy to share our time with you or can give you looooooads of good advices and maps of nice sightseeing points ...
    We collected many hiking books over the years ;-)

    - Which of the tasks you can help us with (see section "Help")
    - Preferred time and duration of your stay. Please check our calendar first for availability!

    - Tell us about your interests, background and why you would like to stay at our place

    -What we are looking for:
    - Our minimum age limit is 20 years. We prefer people who have some years of work experience.
    - Due to limited space, priority is given to individual travellers and couples- rather than friends.

    !!!!!! NOTE:
    We respect every being if human or not - this is our way of living! ! !
    ;-) -if we feel that we can't get along with each other-or that we or our way of living is not respected please notice that
    we keep us the right to say if this is not what we except- we are honest-nature and harmony loving people that always try our best to live together in harmony- so we expect that from our guests too- 🌼🌈🌻

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    About us:
    Walter is a Mechanic and Jasmin has various jobs like:
    working for a farmer that sells old rarity vegetables on the regional Market
    and she gives creative courses at the farm in her own pottery workshop for young and old
    and she is also self-employed and working as a Qi Gong teacher (like Tai Chi),

    Workshops she gives are all around nature like:
    -->building a Pizza oven out of clay also for baking bread,
    -->or building homes for bee´s and insekts,
    -->clay Workshops like building a Tajine (pot for cooking on fireplaces) and learn how to cook with it
    -->ceramic Workshops
    -->learn how to dye and spin wool...
    We live with the seasons and try to use whatever our Little farm gives us:
    In April we are preparing the housegarden
    planting them in May
    June and July starts a bit of harvesting- like berrys and pear and we start to
    dry fruits or fill up jars with veggies or jams for the winter time make Sauerkraut and Honey
    ... collecting herbs for teas
    ...we harvest the apples.. making vinegar and applejuice... everything for the winter
    ...preparing pottery for the Christmas markets, ....

    She always also needs help in simple pottery- things- but depending on your skills and interests... and
    please think about if you want to produce something for yourself-
    that takes all in all most of the time 4-6 weeks- of course it´s possible but please think about it when you wanna learn something- take´s time ;-)
