Our farm is a highly productive organic Mini-Farm who needs some helping hands to get some infrastructure and planting done and to support the daily tasks with the animals and gardens. Hi, I'm Daniel, a Swiss Guy living since 2005 in beautiful Transylvania, yes - exactly the Dracula, garlic and bats stuff.... Together with my Romanian wife Hermina we built our Mini-Farm out of a piece of barren land and a uninhabitable house. After a lot of planting, repairing and composting we became every year more productive and efficient. Our 1ha farm is leaded by regenerative agriculture and permaculture principles which has become our passion, besides animals, healthy food and to be hosts for holiday guests and volunteers. Ever more produce means also ever more food to store, to can, to dry and and and.... So we need you! We would like to do even more out of our products and available space but manpower is limiting us. If you can imagine being part of a small team, doing and learning new stuff and have a lot of fun, then you should contact us. To prevent bad dreams about Dracula there's always enough garlic available..... :-)
Thank you very much for reading and hope to hear from you.
Important: Hermina and I do not eat on a regular basis, which means, that we can not assure fixed eating hours. There are even days we're fasting. Of course you will get everyday your meals and groceries, but almost for sure, there will be days where you have to cook them for yourself. A fully equipped kitchen is available. Thanks for understanding.
Current projects we want to start:
- finish some wiring on fences
- planting trees on a new bought piece of land
- finish some landscaping
- build a small snail farm

Help around the house
Your hosts are family members with international background. Romanian, hungarian, german and even swiss behavior influences not only the food we cook, but also they way we plan or design our farm. If interested in german language we would be happy to practice with you.
We're expecting that you are able to help us in the vegetable gardens and after some easy instructions to take care of animals like dogs, chicken, ducks, geese and also cows (no milking!).
If you are interested in art, or you are a artist, then you will love our place. We provide perfect spaces for artists of all kind and writers. If you like creating with wool, leather or wood, we probably can learn a lot from you and we let you beautify our yard. For our courses and food events we need decoration stuff and wooden signposts.
We offer modern, new, heated and clean accommodation. We have a new guesthouse with separate entry, with a bunk bed (2 beds, each 200x90) to offer. Hot water, indoor toilet and heating is a given at any time of the year.
Our home is part of a typical transylvanian village. The people are very friendly and many traditions aren't lost yet. The village is situated in a wide valley which exposes us sometimes to heavy winds. We appreciate volunteers very much, who try to integrate in the daily rhythm and who are interested to make new friends and experiences. A special tourist guestbook we've made for our paying guests is available. A lot of interesting places are waiting to be explored by you - but you can also just relax at the swimming pond!
