We have a 6,8 hectare of land, and many kinds of farm animals, horses, ponies, goats, cows, chickens, etc. and a pond with some boats and fish.

    Our farm is located 10 kilometers from centrum of Mikoląj Kopernik city - TORUŃ .
    Old tow is very old and beautifull. You can see there the KOPERNIK HOUSE , and many old building. It is touristic city and in the summer season many tourist come to visit Toruń
    In Toruń is a big university UMK . That in the evening in the city many young students visit the pubs and party at clubs. So if you feel like to go out sometimes, you will have a lot of fun.
    In our farm you can see how to make bread, sausage, smoked ham, cheese- home edition, because we prepare this food for tourist, and for my family.
    Our village is near to city, but only few people lives here and it is nice and quiet.
    Near the farm is main river in Poland Wisła and the village is natural Vistula floodplain and you can not build new homes here.
    if you like nature, you can see a lot of beavers by the river, and on the fields of deer, which are not afraid.
