  • Description

    Description

    We are an eco farm in the making with primary focus on sustainable living and environmental awareness. Located over 10 hectars of meadows and forest in Pōllkula, a village accessible by train, within 40 minutes from Tallinn.

    We are a multicultural team of Europeans and Australians. Previously involved in bar & hostel business- our home for the past 10 years, pre Covid. Like many of you the changes in the world made us reassess our goals and actions, inevitably our plans both for long and short term shifted dramatically. That fueled the desire to evolve and build a sustainable business with a community behind it.

    We are the right place if you love this simple life and want to be part of the building process over 2022. Our aim is to build log cabins and also to expand our non dig garden beds, maintain the area.

    Our sauna is ready, cabin is being built, we have a lake, a well, free bikes, electricity, WIFI, chicken, meals and until mid summer tenting option.
    Paid position involves help with building more cabins on site and includes accommodation on top of an hourly wage.
    Feel free to message me for more details!
