My family owns this farm since 1984. On this farm lives my brother with his wife and little boy, my mother and my girlfriend and I.
The breakfast, lunch and dinner is taken with us. We expect from a volunteer that he helps in the morning in the tasks that I am doing (sometimes also helping my brother or my mother). In the afternoon the volunteer can do what he likes (reading, resting, walking, sports, etc. The beach is 15km away).
We produce (Only BIO) a lot of the products we eat on the farm, trying to buy the less possible. With the legal distillery, I produce a traditional drink from this area. October till end of December is the time to pick the fruit (the trees grow on the hills), distilling than in January/February. During the picking time, the mane task is picking fruit, so we will be the most time in the forest.
The animals that we have at the moment are: bees, picks, geese, ducks, chicken, sheep’s, dog and cat.
The electricity is from solar panels.
We will spend the meals, the working time together and so we can exchange a lot. You can learn a lot about animals, garden, distillation, and the day by day work on the farm. We also go to local market 1 in month and more events, where you can always go with us and learn about this area.
The beach is 15 km away so in the free days and in the afternoon you can go there. When some of us goes with the car in this direction we always can take you if you want.
You will be helping in all tasks that we are doing on the farm. This farm is just producing for us, so we have food. We are not selling the products of the farm.
Depending on the year season you can help us on : Garden ((seeding, planting, irrigating, picking vegetables…), constructions (little things on the house, fence, shelters for the animals) cleaning land, cutting wood, feeding the animals, picking fruits, picking grapes and making juice and wine, etc.
for us it is important that you are doing the tasks with us, so you are not alone doing a task and also because this way it is more fun and we can talk and make many things happen much faster :)
At the moment we do not accept familys with kid's. Sorry.
