  • Description

    Description

    We are a family who live in small village in the beautiful landscape. We have a small farm where we plant the vegetables and fruits, keep two draft horses, poultry, rabbits and the bees.

    Our dream is to be self-sufficient, to have own vegetables and meat for whole year. We like to work outside. We work with our horses in the field. We don´t use any chemikal spray.

    We have farmed for 7 years and we are learning a lot about farming all the time. We cultivate 0,1 ha of a field where we grow the vegetables. Vegetables are intended for our family. If we have enough we sell it.

    We have also 4 ha of pastures where we keep there four sheep with lambs and two horses this year. We look after the wood. Last two years we have started reconstruction the barn and this year we will finish it.

    We are friendly and we are looking for the new voluntaries.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We are friendly and easy going people. We like to share our experince with others. If you want, you can learn a lot about keeping the bees, getting honey, about gardening.

    We like you tell us your expreince, customs etc. We are flexible with hours since the work usually doesn't have to be done in a specific time.
