    Description

    Hello,
    we are some openhearted people living in the beautiful mountains of switzerland. (3 childrean from 8to 13years and 2 adults). Our Farm is in a southern, small village at 1300m. We are living with two dogs, a cat, six chicken, two cattle, one cow, three yaks and nearly 70 goats. As usual for farming, our work depends a lot at the season. It makes a diffrent, either the animals are outside or inside, give milk or not, everywhere snow or not...
    For some kind of work (specially helping with the farm) we need to explain a lot, and for that reason we appreciate people who will stay at least one month.

    -Together we try to manage our life respectful and with a lot of happiness and joy.
    -It is always something to do.
    -We do not accept racism, homophobia, nationalism, sexism...
    -Spoken languages: German, English, spanish, italian
    -We host people with children!
