My husband Bernd (55) and I (51) run a small cattle farm near Göttingen.
When I first read about volunteering I was immediately interested. We used to have a house full of young people. Since two of our three daughters (28,27,19) have moved out I miss the hustle and bustle, the company and their helping hands.
We are now 61 and 57 and looking back at 9 years with great experiences with workaway!
DIY and building projects
Help around the house
We speak a very proper German because in this area is no typical idiom spoken.
During spring I can teach you to cook witn socalled "weeds", like nettles, goutweed, dandelion and so on.
If you are interested in self-sufficiency, you may help with butchering chickens or pig.
This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
I am looking for helpers from mid-April till mid-May for planting and seeding vegetables and flowers for both, my self-service flower field and a vegetable field where I rent small allotments to other people
During summer there will be some weeding, harvesting and preserving fruits and vegetables, helping with the .fencing, feeding, general farmwork.
Besides, there is always something to do like tidying up sheds, cleaning, some painting and so on.
In general, the work schedule depends on the weather, but no more than round about 25 hours/week.

The landscape here is very nice and there are paths for walking and cycling (a bike is provided).
However, we live in a rural area and there are no shops and pubs within walking distance which is why I prefer hosting couples or friends to give boredom no chance.
On Tuesdays my husband can take you to Göttingen, the nearest town, for sightseeing and shopping.
