    Description

    Hi, I am Tony I came to Bulgaria (with my partner Deborah) to live as sustainably/off grid as possible. We are in our second year now and lots of work still to do, from stone and cob building to vegetable gardening, small scale grain production, fruit production etc. Throughout the next two to three years we will be happy to have anyone interested in this way of life come and stay a while. We grow most of what we need here and keep a large flock of chickens for eggs, meat and the pleasure of their company. We aim to build a passive solar stone cob wood and glass home next and further expand our cropping production (no dig method)

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    You could learn Bulgarian, woodturning, wood crafts, farming natural remedies wine making and other food items. We essentially live in a way that is less dependent on outside services and resources if your one of the many who aspire to the homestead way of life then you'll certainly learn here.
