  • Description


    We are a family that start to run a small organic farm. In order to be as sustainable as possible and preserve the nature, we are learning and applying principles of syntropic agriculture.

    We started here making our own straw bale house. Now we have some other structures as well, like a ship container mixed with a cordwood structure that is used like a dormitory, living area, bathroom and kitchen.

    The work here is about agriculture, gardening and general maintenance. It can be a little hard sometimes,,,so, be prepared!

    If you like live in the nature, but not so far away from the city, here is your place to stay! Join us!
