In the house and 5 barns are always something to do (Renovating, and more) The woods have to be cleaned up and there are some trees to be cut also.
Linda has just finished to build her own Hobbit House, If You like Ecological buildings, here is the right place.
We have a big garden with potatoes, salad, fruits and much more( in summer). Guests will have their own room (Winter) or in Summer in our hay hotel where you can sleep with your sleeping bag. One of the barns will transform in a training centre. So you see a lot of things to do, but we don't forget to celebrate, with our own "house-wine" from fruits and grapes. We had already Volunteers from : Brazil, Venezuela, USA, France, Denmark, Romania, Spain, Germany, Netherlands, Finland, Russia, Austria, Swiss and England. So you are also very welcome!

We have a guest room (winter) and in Summer you can stay in a tent or in our own hay hotel (sleeping in straw / hay with your sleeping bag) very cosy!
We like to integrate you in family...
the next town Smiltene is 6 km away. We have a canoe for the nearby lake, bikes and some tents our guest can use!
In Latvia it is very common to buy clothes from a second hand shop. We have a lot of them. Very cheap and very good quality. Close to 100% of our Volunteer use them to buy stuff. So you have not to bring everything with you.
We also have Sauna house that we use all regularly.
We like to integrate the Volunteers into family life!!! This is important for us.
See you on our farm!
