    Description

    YOU HAVE FUN TO TEACH OUR KIDS SOME DANISH AND ENGLISH IN A PLAYFUL WAY ?
    Welcome to our small Alpaca Farm in the middle of an unique UNESCO biosphere reserve!

    We are a family with three kids aged almost 3, 5 and 8 yeras old and have started to passionately breed alpacas. Our vision is to turn the formerly farm property of our grandfathers into a self- sufficient living and working space and offer a great space to learn from each other. We love to be surrounded by like-minded people with a hands-on attitude who are committed and serious. Drugs of any kind are not welcome.
    Even though a helping hand with animal care ist greatly appreciated this is not a day filling task since alpacas are by nature quite undemanding animals that most time of the day graze on the pasture land :)

    PLEASE NOTE: WE MAINLY LOOK FOR a LANGUAGE PRACTICE in DANISH, SPANISH or ENGLISH, HOMESCHOOLING ASSISTANCE, CHILD CARE and light HOUSEKEEPING besides some FARM ASSISTANCE

    ...and in the second place for SKILLED and EXPERIENCED CRAFTSMAN for some ECO-BUILDING PROJECTS. Some basic knowledge in German language can be helpful for comunicate with our kids and attend our farm visitors. On the weekends we sell handmade ice cream and offer small guided tours with alpacas as well as short farm visits :) ...

    WE ONLY LOOK FOR PEOPLE WHO WANT TO STAY WITH US FOR MINIMUM 2 MONTH AND MORE...
    If you are a Danish or English native speaker you are very welcome o teach our kids some Danish/ English:)

    PLEASE read our description of the requested work carfeully before contacting us. We will not answer to randomly sent and pre-written requests without a clear description of yourself and how you will be contributing to our assigned tasks.

    We are looking forward to hear from you :)
