  • Description

    Description

    We completed the build of our straw bale house back in 2016 and now we run a small farm providing for ourselves and our goats, who in turn give us milk which we turn into cheese, ice-cream and soaps!
    There is always something to do.
    Help required with all aspects of running the farm and household, including keeping our two children, aged 3 and 7 years as of 03/2021, entertained and away from danger.
    We prefer volunteer couples\friends, although we do make exceptions if you have past Workaway experience.

    What else ...

    The area is distinctly rural and if you love nature then it's all around, however the city of Rzeszow is less than an hour away if you crave civilisation and we will be happy to get you to a train or bus station to take you there. We also try and visit the antiques market there every second Sunday. Hopefully these will return again soon as restrictions are lifted.
    Krakow is a few hours away by train where you will find plenty to do.
