  • Description


    Hello Workawayers!

    My name is Alina, and I own a small animal Farm with Ponies, Llamas, cats and bunnies in Austria. The location is just great, you will be only 10 minutes away from both Switzerland and Germany.
    Since I already went abroad to work on ranches via, I would like to offer a great experience abroad to some workawayer. I am pretty busy being a Psychology Student, working in Sales for two days a week and now owning a Ranch and a dog.

    This would be a rural but not so rural experience. There is not running water or electricity on the property, but it is located at a big street and there is a bus stop only 5 walking minutes away that takes you to a mall within 1 minute. With the bus you can get anywhere, including the train station and the mountains.

  • Help


    The help won't be hard but you would need to be VERY responsible, since the animals rely on you!
    The work starts around 8:45 am
    - Feeding in the morning
    - Mucking out
    - Some days letting the horses to the pasture
    - Feeding the animals at night around 6:00 pm

    If you want you are very welcome to ride the ponies/ horses. If you are very experienced you can hold a beginners "lesson" to kiddies, since I offer pony rides and horse riding for beginners. (The students don't pay for the lesson itself, but for the ponies they will ride owned by me)

  • Accommodation


    You will be offered your own, modern and comfortable bedroom with a queensize bed. Most of the time the "kitchen", which is only run by fire and wood, is only yours as well. This experience will be very special without electricity and running water. There is a toilet, of course. We use water tanks. There is NO SHOWER, so you would need to use buckets or visit the gym nearby. There is a big Mall 10 walking minutes away with many restaurants to choose from.
    To charge your phone it would be good to take external chargers which can be charged for you. Or you go to the nearby mall.
    It would be important for you to get a phone plan with internet, to stay in contact.

    This type of lifestyle is not for everyone, but I love it and maybe you will too.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    There is a lot to do at the farm and nearby.
    The bus stop is very close by. So is a mall, restaurants, transportation.
    Whenever I am there I will gladly take you around. We have beautiful mountains here and the biggest lake of Europe. We are located a 10 minute drive from Switzerland and form Germany. The big city of Munich is only 2 hours away, the capital of our state only 5 minutes by car. It is a beautiful city at the lake.
