    We have 12 hectares of farm land, where we care for 4 horses, 4 ponys, 2 donkeys, and some sheep (growing herd), plus we harvest hay and manage forest land and other landscape features. So we Always have a lot of work to be done, and we would love to share this farming experience with volunteers who can help us. We also have 3 dogs who are good companions in the farm.

    We look specifically for volunteers who have some experience with farm animals, especially with horses. We also look for volunteers who are willing to stay minimum 1 week, up to 1 month.

    We speak Dutch, English, German, and French.
