We are a family who run a little farm in South Tyrol.
The farm is located in Pfalzen/Falzes, 3.5 km outside the village centre at an altitude of 1.200 m. The senior farmers (Rosa and Hans) live at farm, they take care of 2 cows with their calves and maintain the farm. Also 3 cats and some chicken are part of it.
We, the younger son (Reinhard, 36) and his companion (Christa, 37) live with their two boys (3,5 and 6.5 years old) in a row house in the village centre. We are responsible for the raspberry field at the farm, which isn’t big, but needs a lot of care. Especially for the raspberry harvest we need some help. It starts at the beginning of July till the first or second week of August. Also in the fall we have raspberries (September till October).
You can stay with us in the village centre. The connection in the village is good. A bus goes every half an hour to Bruneck/Brunico. And I would also like to show you around or make little excursions, which are possible with the kids too.
Our mother tongue is German, but we are also capable of Italian and English.
If you are interested in staying with us, giving us a helping hand and to enjoy our beautiful surrounding, contuct us. We look forward to hearing from you!

Usually it’s quiet, but in summer when the raspberry harvest starts, also we become busy and are happy about any help. The main harvest starts in July till the mid of August. After the harvest, we have also to cut the plants.
In this period we have different tasks to perform: to pick the raspberries, taking care of the kids, to cook or help a bit in the household and depending on the weather, it can happen, that the hay harvest is due too.
But there are also raspberries to pick in autumn in the months of September and October. Then its not so busy but its also nice, if someone comes to visit and helps us.
Especially this year Christa works as a teacher and Demian starts with the first year of elementary school. So there is less time for the work on the farm. For this reason we look for flexible workawayers.
