    We live at a farm and there is a lot of work around.

    It is a helping environment in all weathers! You should be fit and you need to enjoy working outside.

    We need support with the horses (stable work, mucking out, grooming the horses, feeding...).

    Work is depending on the season and the projects.

    Talented craftsmen will find some great projects e.g. painting, restoration, woodwork, DIY, service of bicycles, ...

    We grow our own vegetables and herbs. Our permaculture garden needs some more green fingers.

    We are restoring old construction trailers. The next trailer should change into a farmshop for handcrafted gifts, marmelades...

    We like to handcraft. Our sheepswool must be washed and sorted out to be prepaired for felting.

    Volunteers have to work independently and taking the initiative rather than waiting to be told what to do.

    The tasks of clearing up and helping in the household are shared.

    We have only very limited possibilities for volunteers to ride our horses. Only very experianced riders can go on horseback. So please do not expect.

    We prefer to invite volunteers who can stay more than 2 weeks. For very good work we provide pocketmoney and/or education in EEA.

    Sorry, we do not accept dogs.

  • Accommodation


    We have single or double bedded renovated construction trailers (simple but cosy) at the area. They can be heated by radiators. Bathroom must be shared, water and electricity must be saved. We do not have hot water every day!

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    All volunteers must have their own insurance.

    Free WiFi is available to use ( Not in the Trailers, only in and around the house).

    We will pick you up from trailstations, public transport (Bus) works fine, but please note that we are in the countryside.

    We look forward to hearing from you. Tell us something about yourself, your experience (with horses) and how long you would like to stay for and how you could contribute.
