    Hello! We, Irene ,Michael and Valentina( born 28.June 2018 )are running a small farm in a village called Aschbach in Lower Austria. We have 4 horses, two ponies, three cats and a bunch of chicken.
    The farm is situated a bit outside of the centre, there are some other houses and farms around but it is quite rural.

  • Help

    Help

    We are looking for people who are practical and don't need anyone to tell them what to do every minute.
    Mainly we need help in the house with general maintenance, cleaning and cooking. We do eat meat but if you are vegetarian and like cooking you can overtake preparing lunch for us and surprise us with delicious vegetarian meals ;)
    Irene also needs help with the Baby and the horses, feeding them and mocking out the stable are daily tasks. Sometimes she needs help during riding lessons e.g. holding a pony whilst the other one is trained. If you have experience with horses we can talk about horseback riding, too.
    Around a newly built house and a farm there is always work to find like weeding, construction work and so on so please bring some clothes which can become dirty and be prepared for physical work.
    Every second weekend Michael's son (7 years) is visiting and after being shy in the beginning it can happen that he chooses you as his new playground mate.
