    Description

    Heyho! First the classic Things :) I live with my Family (me=Barbara, Wolfgang =husband, Kids: Nina (11, Alex 9)) on really nice farm. We are open minded and really Family People.

    At "work" we act in different Areas...

    Dairy farm:
    There is on the one side the dairy farm (small one .. with about 50 cows + calves & automatic milking) - so if you dont mind feeding cows & calves, and learn or broaden your experience with cows - just perfect ;)!!

    Agriculture Service:
    on the other side my husband offers agriculture Services (tractors, harvester for grass and corn, sowing machine, plough....) ... so if you love to drive with anything that makes noise and is loud and has a lots of power - you are the right one!!

    MOUNTED GAMES/Horses
    on the other side ... we have 5 Ponies at the Moment. My daughter is doing Mounted Games. So would be a PLUS if you do MG or PonyClub. Here in Austria there is not a big Scene for that - but we are also going to competitions to Germany and Czech Republic. For sure you can also go with us. It would be no Problem if you take your own horse with you!

    There are several Trainers here also for jumping and dressage. If you also love Riding/MG and enjoy farm work - PLEASE Contact ;) We are waiting......

    So a combination of at least two Things would be perfect - but you can try evrything and look what fits you best :)

    Oh ... about our village - we live in the middle of nowhere (at least it seems so) - the next big City is Linz (20 min with the car) - oh yeah car - you can use one of our cars when you need. So it is not that bad ;)

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Cultural, upper Austria is one of the best Areas in Austria. The People are friendly and helpful, we have some really old and Magic places around (not like stonehenge - but in some small way very unique). For sure you can do a lot of outdoor Things. You will see - its not boring here.

    Okay - some Things i mentioned already above. You should be an open, interested and animal/tractor loving Person . English is no Problem for us - but it would be great if you want to learn /or speak a bit german ... because of the Kids - but that shouldnt be a Problem.
    And always think - work should be fun. We have a lot of work here at our place but never Forget to laugh ;)
