    we, dejan and kathi, are a little farm with 17 pig, 4 chicken, 5 cats and 2 dogs.
    our place is full of old fruit, nut and chestnut trees which provide us with almost everything we need over the seasons. Self-substainability is a big project and love of ours. This place is located at beautifu papuk area, a national park approx. 400 km2, We grow our own vegetables and produce our own meat. We have spring water from a mountain source. The air is fresh and clean!
    We make indian sweat lodges and try to find the little joys by doing.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We can teach you some Croatian, how to prepare wood, processing fruits etc. interesting things about herbs and if the time is right, we can also show you how to make your own ham, sausages, vinegar, and so on.

  • Help


    We need help with wood preparing for winter and harvesting and processing fruits, nuts and what else is ripe at the moment. We also like to have some nice company during the 'darker seasons' of the year.
    We produce meat and make our own sausages, hams etc. We could also need some help with that when the time is right (Nov, Dec.).
    All is for own consumption.
    During wintertime we like to spend our days with handicrafts such as making jewelry, sports equipment (indiaka), and art objects.
