  • Description


    We are a family of 7: but don't live all together anymore on our homestead. My husband, I and our baby girl from 3 years old run this homestead with hearth and soul. We are a small community at ourselves, building a self-sustainable and spiritual health farm in Moricgat Hungary. We are a very artistic family, and love creativity! Everything in and around our house we make with up-cycled materials. Being independent is one of our greatest goals. So freedom is our main word, that's why we constantly think out of the box and re-invent our lives.

    My background as a homeopath/therapist/coach gives me the possibility to help people through their personal but also business goals. I work online as a psychic, so several hours per day I work online, especially at night. So we have a chaotic schedule with not a lot of structure. We call ourselves lazy farmers. Because we have to combine working with our growing homestead and that's a big challenge (because is combining 2 jobs at the same time), we constantly try to invent new things to create time and work daily tasks out, with the possibility to work quickly and easier.

    This year is a year of big changes in Szivarvany Tanya. One of our girls leave the farm to start her own family. She stays in the small village of Szank to start her own mini-farm. Our family works together in so many ways. We are only 12 minutes from each other so we will go and help a lot there. Also, our own projects need maintenance and we want to build a big veranda on our house to have more place in our home.

    Our farm is full of animals (goats, pigs, chickens, cats, dogs, ferrets, rabbits, quails, ducks, pearl chicken, goos...) There is a big vegetable garden with greenhouse, fruit and nut trees. We are working with natural fertilizer, natural pests, and secret knowledge! This year we start our own beehives. We do canning from food, also do we do a lot of preparing and preservation of food. Using all kinds of techniques, we also dry food and even make things like distilled water, our own vinegar, Palinka even etheric oils. We live in the puszta this means lots of acacia trees and raw nature.

    Expect to live/sleep in a tent with mattress in the hearth of the puszta and acacia forests, we use the tents from April till November, remind this when you want to come for a specific period, it can be very cold or very hot. We are building a man-cave for my hubby and a guesthouse where my oldest daughter will live in. both houses could give extra sleep-places for volunteers during winter and spring or autumn. We love to hike in the puszta and collect herbs, fruits, nuts, wood for winter. Regularly we walk with our border collies or goats through the forest. We breed border collies and train them on our farm. They are a part of our daily routine. The motivation to choose for this life is based on the belief that nature is our best friend and our only spiritual path in life! We are not vegan or vegetarian but our oldest daughter is vegetarian and we cook always with attention for her needs, so that could be for you 2! We all have MCS (multiple chemical disorder) we like you to not use perfumes, deodorants, shampoo's, mosquito spray's or cigarettes in the house or at the dining table! There are NO CHEMICALS on our farm (except petrol for the chainsaw). There will be soap, shampoo, and natural products on the farm you could use instead.

    If you want to know what's in for you? We could teach you everything you like to know about Dharma. There could be a lot of knowledge exchange for a chemical-free living! Do you want to learn about getting healthy, about good food, about finding freedom, about unschooling? If that is not what you are searching for, you could just find happiness and self-confidence buy a connection with nature.

    We are working daily on lowering our footprint on the earth. We are always in search of new ideas that save money or materials, so suggestions for new ways of doing things are very welcome.

    We do shopping in a small town 15 minutes from us, if you like, you can join us and go there to the local market, on Sundays we do the big shopping in the city Kiskunfelegyhaza or go to markets for animals of emaïlle for our small business. It is also easy to take a bus to our little village, in a couple of minutes you could drive to the nearby train station and you could go anywhere you like.

    If you want to go swimming you can go to a wellness place 10 minutes with a car from our farm. We try to live clutter-free, we don't have a lot of lux on our farm, expect to live very down to earth... We have a very good internet connection so for people who work online to earn money while they are on our farm. You could work here perfectly

    We can pick you up at the train-station Jaszentlaslo and bring you back to the train station if you like!
