We live since June 2011 on our farm in the most western part of Germany. The dutch border is only a few 100 meters away. The next dutch city is Sittard (3km). The next bigger german city is Aachen (35 km).
We are a family of five. Our son Noah is born in August 2010, our second son Mika is born in August 2012 and in May 2020 our baby Jonah is born. Alwin is working fulltime in the IT business and Stephanie is a Psychomotricity Therapist (Master APA).
We have a big garden with a lot of vegetables and a orchard directly at our house.
We also own a piece of forest.
Animals: 1 cat, 1 dog and 10 chickens.
We would be happy if you could help us 5 hours a day. (5 days a week. If you help on a saturday you can take another day off, Sundays are always off)
P.S. We only can host people with a valid health insurance.
It would be good if you provide us a copy of your passport on arrival, or we can take one by ourself.

Travellers can practice German and Dutch language with us and the rest of the extended family. They can also experience typical lifestyle in a german family. We like good conversations with our guests and share as many meals as possible.
We need help for the work in the garden or orchard or around the house (depending on the time of the year). Also a helping hand in the house is needed (looking after the kids or cleaning).
Sometimes some woodwork in the forest has to be done or other renewing activities (e.g. painting) at our house.
Currently we are still working at our house therefore people with experience in the construction area are also more than welcome.
We offer a free stay in a own room with internet access in most areas of the house and a guest bathroom. 3 meals a day will be prepared from you or from us.
