    Description

    Our Farm is just befor an renewing in structure and living. We are searching for this period releabel people self organising with sleepingbag and tent. Beginning from June 2018 our local friend Bogdan will build tiny houses for winter.
    The best would be if you come with one or two other people, so that you can help each other with the language, cooking and herding. We have a sheperd for the buffalos and a vetenarien who can be asked, when there is a question, but they only speek ukrainian.
    Its a beautiful area close to the river Tisa, possible for swimming and Kajaking.The next village is 2 km away.
    Your work would simply be a herding a group of 17 horses.
    Igor will show you where to go and what to do.
    Herding period is from 8am to 6 pm.

    We are providing space for the preservation of several endangered animals including Huzul horses, and Carpthian buffalo. We try to build alternative living options for people searching the nature.

    We suggest that volunteers stay for one month to gain a complete understanding of the horses, but are more than happy to accommodate people who wish to stay for longer.
    The farm is in one of the most wild areas of Europe. Our primitive circumstaces may be difficult so please be prepared.

    You will not just work on a farm here, you will also help to preserve the unique biodiversity of this truly magnificent region!

    Main work over the summer is chill with the horses;) you can learn a lot about herd structure and behavior and make friends with the foals.
    Beside its enough time to study a language, write, read and draw.
