  • Description

    Description

    We (Franziska and Daniel) are a family with three children (born in 2013 , 2015 and 2019) who run a farm about 15km away from Berne together with Daniel's brother. We milk 25 dairy cows used for producing Emmental Cheese at the local cheese dairy. On our cropland, we grow wheat, potatoes, canola, barley, sugar beets and maize.
    We live only a few meters away from the bus station where you get a connection every half hour to Berne and thereby to the big rail network that connects the whole country. The bus ride to Berne takes about 30 minutes.
    We have a big house with a big garden where we like to spend our time with our children or growing vegetables and flowers.
    If you are interested, we will gladly send you the link to a film (made by Workawayers) about us and the work with us.


    Wir (Franziska und Daniel) sind eine Familie mit drei Kindern (geb. 2013, 2015 und 2019) und führen zusammen mit Daniels Bruder einen Landwirtschaftsbetrieb in der Nähe von Bern. Wir haben 25 Milchkühe und bauen Weizen, Kartoffeln, Raps, Gerste, Zuckerrüben und Mais an.
    Wir wohnen nur eine Meter von der Haltestelle der halbstündliche fahrenden Busse nach Bern entfernt. In Bern hat man Anschluss an das grosse Fernverkehrssystem der ganzen Schweiz.
    Wir haben ein grosses Haus mit einem grossen Garten, wo sich unsere Kinder am liebesten aufhalten und wir auch Gemüse und Blumen anbauen.

    Gerne senden wir Dir bei Interesse den Link zu einem (von Workawayern gedrehten) Film über uns und die Arbeit bei uns.

    Accommodation

    You will have your own big bedroom, but we only have one bathroom and one shower, therefore you would have to share them with our family.

    Du wirst ein eigenes grosses Schlafzimmer haben, aber weil wir nur ein Badezimmer und eine Dusche haben, müssen wir diese teilen.
