    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Living in a quiet place in the countryside surrounded by animals, focused on how they behave and communicate can be a very enriching experience for people who want to experiment a life more connected to nature in the most simple way. To see happy pigs, hear their stories, cuddle chickens, make photos of sunset and cows is amazing. It is a paralell world where animals are truly happy.
    You have a lot of privacy and time for your self - since I am a mother of three kids and busy with them , a lot away from the farm, but I will be happy to talk to you if you anytime you need me.
