We are a small farm focusing on natural way of farming (animal care and gardening). Currently We have 5 cows and 40 goats. We produce cheese and meat products as well as vegetable and fruit products. We are trying to live a natural way of life without producing toxic waste, but also not losing contact with the world we live in. (maybe we try to connect the best of both areas)
This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
We are located in the countryside near the river Small Danube, not far from the capital of Slovakia, Bratislava, (40 km; public transport is available), and we are surrounded with a lot of interesting places, such as thermal springs, cultural heritage, picturesque nature, historical places. Slovakia is a nice small country with high mountains and vast lowlands and great cultural differences from west to east. Our residence is also close Vienna (90 km) and Hungary (60 km).
In our small farm we need help with animal care - cows (feeding, milking) and gardening. Also possible cheesmaking.
Accomodation is in our small rural house in a separate room.
There is a lot of possibilities what to do in free time - since we are located in nature it is possible to go biking, swimming or rowing. Other than that, it is easy to get into the capital city, or other regional towns (each town has its own distinctive character) nearby which offer all cultural or free time activities.
Also to help Your health there is a lot of thermal springs and thermal swimming pools.
Slovaks speak english quite well, so there should not be a language problem.
