Welcome to to our new life time project and style of living!
We are Ricardo (Portuguese) and Agnieszka (Polish), the young cool farmers. We bought our farm in 2016, after several trips around Europe, from hitchhiking with a backpack to driving our campervan.
Our farm is our stop, the place, our destination. After experiencing different events and people, learning and thinking different perspectives we decided to put hands on work and this place was born.
This is the place where a connection with nature is the centre of our daily lives. We have several animals and our own food garden. We try to reduce as maximum as possible our visits to the shop to buy food, mainly for health' reasons. For now, we have our own milk, cheese, eggs, yoghurt and veggies. We plan to produce more and more our own food as time and skill grow.
We have a traditional polish wooden house from 1958 and several other buildings. We also have a big field for our goats and also part of it for organic agriculture.
Agnieszka main interests are goats and cheese production.
Ricardo main interests are within a healthy and natural lifestyle and also behaviour science.
Instead of writing a huge text around our interests in here, we will simply write main topics that are within our daily lives, interests and goals.
NATURE; ORGANIC FOOD; ECO CONSTRUCTION; HEALTHY LIFE; TRADITIONAL HOUSES; NATURAL MATERIALS; ANIMAL WELFARE; CONNECTION; DOGS; CANINE BEHAVIOUR; WHY'S OF LIFE; MIND ALIKE PEOPLE; LIFE ROOTS; RESPECT; PHOTOGRAPHY; HIKING; LIFE MATTERS; NOW; PURPOSE; EARTH
Cooking / shopping
Help with Eco project
Certainly we can share a great amount of information with the travellers due to our life experiences and age (20's,). (Ricardo travelled through 11 countries and hitchhiked hundreds of kilometers in cars and trucks crossing different borders) (Agnieska lived all her life in the capital of Poland, always wishing to move to the countryside)
We can share a great amount of perspectives in several topics of life and also great knowledge in a more natural way of life making reference to organic food, eco construction, animal welfare, food production and mental health.
We would like some help mainly on the topics of PERMACULTURE( Food garden) , ECO CONSTRUCTION, BUILDING RENOVATION (Renovation of our wooden house and other buildings), ANIMAL CARE (care for our goats, chickens and dog) , SUSTAINABLE PROJECTS.
The workawayers will sleep either on a Tent on our mini forest (inside of our propriety) or in our campervan.
There will be a chill out area with a fireplace, a hammock and a great view of the sunset at the end of our field.
There will be also an off-grid outdoor shower for the workawayers to use as they wish.
The food will be done inside of the house by Ricardo, Agnieszka or some other chef in the area. 3 meals a day will be provided. (We provide a vegetarian diet if needed)
We are located on a rural area. There are several fields around and also some forests. There is as well a big lake in the area where we can swim and get a sunbath. For those who like to take a drink, we have a very nice cowboy bar style near us that can easily be reached by foot. For those into long nights there is always the option of going to KRAKOW. There is a bus very near the farm with straight connection to KRAKOW several times per day. Basically it is located in a relaxed area with a relaxed life style where car and people noises are very rare. Although, if you feel into some extra action there is several other options to spend the free time.
