  • Description

    Description

    Eva is managing our small organic farm since 23 years, but always there were and are other people joining the place. At the moment we are 4 women permanently living on the farm. It is a place to live, to learn and also to go on vacation (we have many paying guests in summer). The shortterm and longterm inhabitants of the farm try to be self-sufficient as much as possible, learn things from each other, enjoy live and sometimes they are also quite angry about the world. At the moment we have some really interestig projects going on: We are taking care of two goats and one cow, which give us milk in return, we gather knowledge about production of fabrics from natural materials which means we plant flax, clean sheep wool, weave and so on, further we construct small and big things in our carpentry workshop and last but not least we occupy ourselves with the production of our precious food: we work in the garden, preserve, bake bread, make milk products and so on. we would love to welcome you on our farm.

    Help

    we can need all kind of help. from making fire wood to gardening, from preserving food to construction...to most important thing is that you can work independently, learn quick and show initiative.
    at the moment most help is needed with milking the animals (by hand). it is a nice task to learn, but it needs some days to get the fingers strong enough to get all milk from the one cow at once:-)
