  • Description


    This is a small farm on which currently 2 horses on 3 hectares of pasture land can enjoy their existence. The support of animal welfare is a concern of ours. So both our two dogs Thiras and Hanno as well as the two cats Rufus and Tarca come from the animal protection. We just took a cat from animal rescue to stay here untli it is conveyd in good hands. Another cats are supposed to arrive.
    Furthermore, we have a small vegetable garden, so that we can feed ourselves in the summer months mainly self-sufficient.
    We need help with the day-to-day tasks as well as with smaller, mostly craft projects, such as the construction of a terrace roof. Further more we are now renovating and rebuilding a garden hut, lay a floor in the shed, so manual skills would be really helpful at this time.
    This is a good place for people who prefer places close to nature and/or want to have a time out from citylife. On the other hand daytrips to cities such as Cologne and Bonn offer a good variety in the freetime. Also its possible to explore the area by cycling.

    Dies ist eine kleine Farm, auf dem zur Zeit 2 Pferde auf 3 ha Weideland ihr Dasein artgerecht genießen können. Die Unterstützung des Tierschutzes liegt mir sehr am Herzen. So kommen sowohl meine zwei Hunde Thiras und Hanno als auch die zwei Katzen Rufus und Tarca aus dem Tierschutz. Gerade haben wir eine Katze aus dem Tierschutz aufgenommen um sie in gute Hände weiterzuvermitteln, weitere Katzen sollen hinzukommen.
    Weiterhin habe ich einen kleinen Gemüsegarten, so dass wir uns in den Sommermonaten teilweise selbstversorgend ernähren können.
    Ich benötige Hilfe bei der Verrichtung der alltäglichen Aufgaben sowie bei kleineren, meist handwerklichen Projekten, wie z.B. dem Bau eines Terassendaches. Zur Zeit renovieren wir außerdem eine Gartenhütt und verlegen einen Boden in der Scheune, daher sind Helfer mit handwerklichen Fähigkeiten momentan dringend gefragt.
    Dies ist ein geeigneter Ort für Leute, die ruhige, naturnahe Orte bevorzugen oder sich eine Auszeit vom Stadtleben gönnen wollen. Andererseits bieten Ausflüge in die nahegelegenen Städte wie Köln und Bonn in der Freizeit eine gute Abwechslung. Die Erkundung der Umgebung mit Fahrrad besteht natürlich auch.
