We, this is Manfred and Sabine, founded our farm in 2012 and have now many different animals like horses, sheeps, lamas, camels, pigs, chicken, cats and dogs. We love animals and we love nature - this style of life helps us to escape from stressing daily life and mass consumption.
We always need help in fostering our animals, in preparing the medows, in keeping our small vegetable garden alive, ....
And we are interested in meeting new people and bring the big world to our little village.
The nearest village is Erlbach (2 km away). Towns like Neuötting, Burghausen, Eggenfelden and Braunau (Austria) are around 15 min away by car. Salzburg and Passau are in a 1 hour distance and Munich in a 1h30 distance.
These workawayers will be satisfied at our place:
- you love nature and to be away from big cities
- you love to be with animals and have no problem in getting dirty or take away pooh
- you are independant and like to be on your own (not always, but from time to time)
- you can work on your own, too
- you see what needs to be done and like to reach something during the day
- you want to get to know Bavarian culture and lifestyle.
We prefer to have you at least 2 weeks with us. Couples are welcome!

We have a workaway task list with things that needs to be done every day, things that needs to be done once a week and things that can be done whenever time allows. You are quite free in spending your time, just for special tasks we need you at accurate times. You can spend the 5 hours work throughout the day, sometimes you can even do tours during the day.

Additionally, we want to renovate the old part of the building which is more than 200 years old. Here, we need also people with good skills for construction
