    Description

    Update: At the moment we are not hosting any helpers.

    Hi there!
    First of all, thanks for having a look at our profile!

    Contact us if you think that you would fit into our family!


    We'd like to add beforehand, that during this stay our accomodation might be very basic (depending on the time you will be with us) so you shouldn't mind that!
    _____________________________________________________

    We are a young family of 4 (two adults and two girls aged 6 and 11). We have a farm that is situated in a little village (Mareit), close to the Austrian border, on the Italian side - amidst the beautiful Alps.

    Apart from our 4 horses who can be ridden by experienced horseriders (only!!). At the moment we have a 3-year old stut who'd need to be trained so we can ride her. So you should be experienced with that kind of help.
    We also have a dog, cats, rabbits, hens and sheep.

    We do many things by ourselves, such as growing potatoes, making apple juice, producing jam and honey.

    Our mother tongue and everyday-language is GERMAN (we live in SOUTH TYROL - a German-speaking part in Italy). We can also speak Italian and English. So if you want to improve your German or English, we are more than happy to help.
    If you are interested in learning more about farmwork, you should speak German or Italian though (as those are the languages Hubert speaks fluently).

    Most of all, you should love children and be warm-hearted and open-minded! :-)

    Just contact us if you are interested in coming to us!

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    You can learn about the South Tyrolian culture and our special situation: living as Germans in Italy.
    Moreover, South Tyrol has exquisite food that is famous in many parts of Europe.
    We can introduce you to the gluten-free cooking and also show you how to prepare South Tyrolean dishes.
    I (Evelyn) am a counselor and work with EFT - a technique based on acupressure point stiumulation. I am more than happy to show it to you!

    Hi, we have a farm amidst the Alps. We have horses and we would love our volunteer to train them. Apart from the specific chores mentioned above, it would be great if our volunteer/s just participated in the everyday life (with enough freetime for you, of course!) ;-)).
