  • Description


    We are an organic family farm with many children, islandic horses and lots of other animals. We are located in the middle of the wonderful Hungarian "puszta", which is a sandy area, just like in the desert of Africa, but with more rain and therefore green. It is an unforgettable and unique nature surrounding and a beautiful country house, more than 150 years old - peace and calm await you here.

    Nevertheless there is a lot of work which needs to be done because we love what we do but there's just not enough time for everything. So you can help us especially with construction work - sanitary facilites for our two monglian yurts need to be constructed. Also, fences and roofs of our houses should be replaced - so strong helpers, men or women - are more than welcome!

    Furthermore we have 11 horses, so you have the chance to work with them, prepare them for our riding tours and do some training with our young horses. Of course you can also explore and enjoy the wonderful nature on a horseback.

    Besides all that, we are a special farm as we organise free camps for children with very poor economic and social background. Last summer we hosted over 30 kids from ghettos with very bad housing conditions, no bathrooms, unemployment, drugs, and crime. Most of them never had the opportunity to travel or to have a vacation. Some of them experienced a shower for the first time in their lives. The actual social and political situation in Hungary worsened the social exclusion and discrimination of Roma and all disadvantaged groups dramatically. From the official site, there is no more subvention or support of NGO's to work with these problem groups - no, all these organizations are targets of hate campaigns. So we really need helping hands and caring, open-minded people with a big heart.

    Budapest is only 50 km, reachable in about 50 minutes.
