  • Description

    Description

    Eva is managing our small organic farm since 26 years, but always there were and are other people joining the place. At the moment we are 6 people 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 interesting 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 produce food for ourselves only and we dont sell anything. we would love to welcome you on our farm.

    Help

    At the Moment we search for people who are interested in learning to milk and make cheese, but for this you have to stay minimum 6 Weeks. Otherwise help in the garden is needed as well ...to most important thing is that you can work independently, learn quick and show initiative.

    Accommodation

    bed in our hostel. (in the summer maybe caravan or similar) shared bathroom. our diet is vegetarian, we sometimes do not cook twice a day, but our kitchen and everything in fridge/cellar/pantry is free to use. We respect vegan diet, but as we produce milk products we appreciate people who appreciate our self made food.
