Update: we can host somebody from October onwards.
We are also looking for somebody interested in looking after my one-year-old nephew (minimum stay: 2 months).
First of all, thanks for having a look at our profile!
Contact us if you think that you would fit into our family!
At the moment we need somebody who helps us with
- farmwork: there is a lot of farmwork like picking berries or helping in the fields
- childcare: when we are both at work we need so. to look after our two children (5 and 10)
- We'd also love to have somebody giving horse-riding and/or vaulting lessons to our daughters (we have 4 horses) or simply ride our horses to keep them fit.
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 5 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!!), 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!

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 jobs mentioned above, it would be great if our volunteer/s just participated in the everyday life (with enough freetime for you, of course!) ;-)).

We have a room with bathroom. Internet access is available.
We mostly eat gluten free.
