We are a family of 3 generations living on 20 acres in Norfolk, UK. We have a smallholding with vegetable growing, an orchard and chickens and geese, a woodland and wildlife meadow that we manage. We have 2 young children that we home educate and live on the site with my parents. We live with environmental sustainability at our core and we love connecting people with nature. We are currently building a straw bale roundhouse made of a variety of natural materials.

Help with Eco project
We would welcome you into our family, with a range of ages there are lots of opportunities to become immersed in British family life. There are lots of opportunities to speak English, eat English food and get to know the Norfolk countryside and our culture.
We would love help on various building projects we have going on, including with the straw bale roundhouse we are building. We coppice our woodland, have lots of land to manage, chickens to care for, beehives and a vegetable garden and orchard that we would love help with. There's always something going on here! There are no specific skills required, being a quick learner and being keen to have a go at hard work, sometimes physically demanding is useful.
English, nearby family members speak French, Italian, German & Russian
We have a spare bedroom with a sink in it and a spacious bathroom very close. We will make sure you are warm and comfortable.
Food is home cooked meals that a healthy British family enjoys. We can easily cater for vegetarian, gluten and dairy free and eat a lot of fresh vegetables and organic food where possible. You'll have the chance to taste British foods.
We're based in the countryside in Norfolk. There is a bus with access to the lovely city of Norwich, local walks and lots of lovely places to explore.
