Actually I am looking for one or two guests more who help with caring for a sick cat, walking the donkeys, sheep, goats and dogs and help with projects you need more hands for, to further improve the farm. Also help in the household is possible, that would give me more time working with the animals and on the farm.
I prefer guests who want to stay from 1 to 3 months, minimum stay is two weeks. You need time to learn all the names and personalities from the animals
It is helpful to be interested in living together with animals but you need no special experiences.
Since late 2010 I live in a really small village in an 40 years old farm house and it changed a lot on this little farm.
Today I live together with various animals (donkeys (2), sheep (2), goats (2), dogs (3), guest dogs (2) cats (5) and hens (4+4), ducks (5), horses (3), minipigs (3) and cows (2)).
I look for my own way in living with the animals. Perhaps you like herding the goats and sheep, or go for walkings with the donkeys or the dogs.
There are many ways to help on the farm. I am sure we find the right work for you. I'm also sure you will learn more about them while working with the animals and also about yourself.
In the best case, we all learn!
A farm like this means there is always something to do.
Examples of stays on this farm:
The stable was rebuilt according to my ideas by a guest.
Another guest has spread good mood in humans and animals for weeks and helps where ever he discovers something he can help with.
A young woman lost her fears about animals during her three weeks stay - first week was not easy for her!
Other workawayer come as friends again and again and bring their ideas and a lot of commitment.
One of them a wonderful artist has given the farm something special with her painting.
A helper has made the yard a lot friendlier with his choice of colors for painting a facade.
Each of them leaves traces here!
Guests who want to contribute their ideas and knowledge or want to work with animals are welcome. Independent work is required, however, in coordination and consultation.
There are many ideas but never enough hands. Life is colorful and we are trying to enjoy the moment.
!!!! I don´t eat animals any more, but use eggs and still eat cheese.
I 'don't prepare meat!!!!
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 my 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 me, but also for you, during your stay here!

Your dream is to live on a farm with animals? Here you can see how that works if things in live changes but you still hold on at your dream. Working is living or life means working? Thinking new, staying flexible...
If you love animals you are welcome on our farm. The biggest part of work with the animals is fun. But together with you the daily work is done quickly, and there is time to talk a little,have new ideas, find solutions for little problems ...
own room and living like a family member or friend
My home has been an old horse farm before and the court or better the whole farm has to be put in order step by step. I learn every day by doing, reading, trying. I like to live together with the farm animals and my (family-)visitors.
Limited internet access
We have pets
We are smokers
different possibilities, conceivible, for example: if you are fine with the farm you work and have fun the whole day and perhaps the weekends free or about four hours/day but then do not think that every move is work. that does not fit into my life (max 2
