    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Visitors can learn about local culture and Estonian life in the countryside. Due to the fact that we are both studying how to grow birds at school and practicing same time by growing them, we can share that knowledge and what we have learnt from our experiences. Also happy to teach Estonian if anyone is interested.

    Help

    Need help with taking care of different kinds of birds(ducks, chickens, geese, turkeys, guinea fowls - mixing different feeds, watering, collecting eggs, cleaning), animals(rabbits, goats), gardening, building fences, repairing old house or anything that breaks or needs repairing... Can cook also, if you want to. We always have different types of tasty homegrown free range birds meat in freezer, but we are very-very happy if someone cooks, because its not our strongest side. Also happy to try out vegan foods.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    Buses are pretty rare here, but they should pass here twice a day, but Valga-Pärnu road aint too far(4km). Little town Tõrva with more bus traffic is pretty close(6km) for picking up adventurers.
    Near our place are the Ruins of Helme castle that are more than 500 years old.
    Estonia is famous for its bogs and there is tons of those... in 20km radius we have 4 of them to visit.
