    Description

    Things to do for fun:
    Go visit Estonian special features: bogs/mires/forests for beautiful views, berries, mushrooms, swim in refreshing bog-lakes.
    Go camping/fishing near beautiful lakes, rivers.
    Have an experience in wonderful Estonian sauna culture - visit Sauna centers with many different saunas in Tartu.
    Enjoy the free nights out in the best (student) town in Estonia.

    Things to do as work:
    Take care of farm birds; growing ducklings; cooking and cleaning; painting, restoring an old farmhouse walls(very simple!); gardening; repair the house, other repairs; setting up farm social media accounts; bless me with ideas, etc.

    Things to learn/exchange:
    I speak English, Russian, Estonian & learning Russian, German, Chinese.
    Have experiences with growing different animals(rabbits, sheeps, goats, pigs, horses, cows, turkeys, geese, guinea fowls, egg-type chickens, meat-type chickens, breed-chickens - the ones that are grown for their looks, different breeds of ducks).
    I have education on farm bird growing.
    Also on experience/knowledge on other fields: technology, computers, mechanics, security systems, fisheries, etc.

    I have done different martial arts for years and i am interested in Asian culture and more spiritual mentality.

    * Stay in house, private room, up to 2 people.
    * Free Wifi available.
    * 1 mountain bike available.

    If interested, i can give you more information quickly on WhatsApp.

    Extra, to free accomodation and free food, can help with visiting beautiful nature in here, camping near a beautiful lake or river, visit small music festivals that happen a lot in Estonia and give a tour in the best and friendliest city in Estonia - Tartu!

    If you are planning staying long term and have learned how to handle everything here, then i might ask you to take care of the household by yourself and leave for few days if that is suitable.

    This is not a proper business yet, just starting with this idea of countryside free-range organic bird farm and cannot yet provide monetary compensation for work 5h per day currently, but if there are good skills and will to do more work, then i'm sure that we can make mutual agreements on that subject too...

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    Estonia is famous for its bogs and there are tons of those... in 20km radius we have 4 of them to visit.
    Near here are The Ruins of Helme castle that are more than 500 years old. Next to it are sand caves that people used to live in hundreds years ago.
    Airports Tallinn(Estonian) and Riga(Latvia) are the same distance from farm so there is not much difference which one you want to land on if coming with plane.
    Also can pick you up from Tartu, Valga/Valka(Est/Lat) or Valmiera(Latvia). Rare cases from Tallinn.
    Little town Tõrva with bus traffic is pretty close(7km) from here.
