  • Description

    Description

    We are a family of 4 which decided to replace life in Germany with a life in a rural environment in the wonderful Balkans. We decided to work with old autochthonous species of animals, breeds typical for Serbia and this region. Cows, pigs, horses and many more to come. From them, we produce pure organic cheese, ham and sausages, as well as domestic rakija (fruit brandy) from plum trees on our property. Something you should definetly taste, as it's considered as a signature of Serbia. Get your taste buds ready, 'cause we got some delicious products on the menu.

    From May, we are starting some bold new projects. Building stables and storehouses, growing our riding school and redecorating.

    - We are looking for volunteers to help us with construction. If you have experience in carpentry or bricklaying please reach out to us!
    - We are also looking for volunteers passionate about animals to be our stablehands and help look after our beautiful horses.
    - Chefs to cook for the household are always very welcome, you will be working with the best local produce.
    - We will be painting the interior of the house so we are looking for some hands to help with this.
    - Lastly, our lovely flocks of sheep need minding so we are welcoming someone who wants to follow in an ancient profession and be our shepherd.

    If you have willing hands and like the sound of our place, we can find a task for you.

    In essence we believe in living a life in harmony with nature. Having fresh mountain air and water for our kids to grow healthy and strong. We are enjoying letting our farm flourish and look forward to eventually hosting guests in our little paradise. 


    Just bring your lovely selves and come to meet us.
