    Description

    Hello, everyone,

    we live together on a farm with many different animals and animal species. There is also a child on the farm at regular intervals.
    It all started here at the end of 2010 with the takeover of an old farm. Some animals were already there and were allowed to stay. One, the old sheep Zipp, is still with us today. Little by little, other animals were added, mostly from animal welfare or animal welfare reasons. Currently living here with us: about 50 chickens and roosters, dogs, cats, miniature pigs, goats, donkeys, horses, cows, geese, ducks, turkeys and guinea fowl.

    First and foremost, we want support for the animals. This can look very different, depending on your interests and your skills. You don't need any special previous knowledge, but you definitely need a lot of interest in the animals. Possible are dog walks, occupation with the animals, observation of the behavior between the animals, care and/or control of sick animals or special cases, walks with donkeys and/or goats, mucking out the stable areas, if you are interested help with feeding... .

    There is also the possibility to help in the yard or in the vegetable garden, possibly to do childcare, cooking, normal household works or small repair work. Basically, there are new challenges here every day - especially for us. We gratefully accept open eyes and general attention.
    It's great when someone is technically gifted or gets ideas about what can be improved here in their daily work.

    Maybe something about the length of stay. Please only inquiries from 2 weeks, because it takes a few days until everything necessary is explained and shown.
    We look forward to people who get involved here for a while and leave their mark. (There are also some that come back again and again - a special benefit of workaway).

    We don´t eat animals any more, but use eggs (only from the hens of this farm).
    If you want to eat meat during your stay on this farm then please prepare it for yourself. You like vegetarian or vegan cooking? Wonderful you are welcome in our kitchen.

    It´s an interesting area for people who like nature (forests), recultivation (coal-district), lakes, animals, bicycle tours and more. Berlin and Dresden and other cities are in a good distance for discovering in weekend visits.

    This is the home of all the animals WHO live here and for us, but also for you, during your stay here!

    Hallo zusammen,

    wir leben auf einem Hof mit vielen verschiedenen Tieren und Tierarten zusammen. In regelmäßigen Abständen ist auch ein Kind mit auf dem Hof.
    Angefangen hat hier alles Ende 2010 mit der Übernahme eine alten Hofes. Einige Tiere waren schon da und durften bleiben. Einer, der alte Schafbock Zipp, ist heute noch mit dabei. Nach und nach kamen weitere Tiere, meistens aus dem Tierschutz bzw aus Tierschutzgründen, dazu. Momentan leben hier mit uns: ca. 50 Hühner und Hähne, Hunde, Katzen, Minischweine, Ziegen, Esel, Pferde, Kühe, Gänse, Enten, Puten und Perlhühner.

    In erster Linie wünschen wir uns für die Tiere Unterstützung. Diese kann sehr unterschiedlich aussehen, je nach eurer Interessenlage und nach euren Fähigkeiten. Spezielle Vorkenntnisse braucht ihr nicht, aber auf jeden Fall jede Menge Interesse an den Tieren. Es geht z. B. um Hundespaziergänge, Beschäftigung mit den Tieren, Beobachtung von Verhalten zwischen den Tieren, Versorgung und/oder Kontrolle von kranken Tieren oder Spezielfällen, Spaziergänge mit Eseln und/ oder Ziegen, Ausmisten der Stallbereiche, bei Interesse Hilfe bei der Fütterung... .

    Es gibt auch die Möglichkeit auf dem Hof oder im Gemüsegarten zu helfen, evtl. Kinderbeschäftigung, Kochen, normale Haushaltstätigkeiten oder kleine Reparaturarbeiten zu erledigen. Im Grunde gibt es hier täglich neue Herausforderungen - besonders für uns. Offene Augen und allgemein Aufmerksamkeit nehmen wir dankbar an.
    Super, wenn jemand handwerklich begabt ist oder im täglichen Arbeiten Ideen bekommt, was sich hier verbessern lässt.

    Vielleicht noch etwas zur Dauer des Aufenthalts. Bitte nur Anfragen ab 2 Wochen, denn es dauert ein paar Tage bis alles Notwendige erklärt und gezeigt ist.
    Wir freuen uns auf Menschen, die sich hier für eine Weile einbringen und ihre Spuren hinterlassen. (Es gibt auch welche, die immer wieder kommen - ein besonderer Gewinn durch workaway).

    Dies ist unser Zuhause egal ob Minischwein, Katze, Huhn... oder Mensch und für deinen Aufenthalt kann es deins werden.

    Wir sind auf dem Weg, vegan zu leben. Allerdings essen wir die Eier, der Hühner, Gänse und Enten des Hofes.
    Falls Du Fleisch essen möchtest, kannst Du es Dir selbst zubereiten.
