  • Description


    We are a very busy family of six. My husband, myself and four wild and wonderful kids all live and work together on our farm. Our kids are adventerous in spirit and always upto something. We are currently expanding and have so many projects on the go. We raise beef cattle and goats and make hay as our main farm income but we have lots of hobby farm projects too. We spend most of our time outside working and playing in the amazing area that we call home. If you love hiking, biking, camping, star watching, peace and quiet, bird watching or animal watching this is heaven to you.
    We would love to share our life with travellers wanting to see and share in farm life and what it has to offer.

    Basically you will just be a part of our family for the time you choose to spend here. Working on small yard, garden or barnyard projects. We are open to different hours or schedules so that you can explore and travel as much as you were hoping. You will not be responsible for childcare but our kids take part in everything we do, so you need to enjoy the company of small children.

    I would love to learn German. My two oldest children have been studying German this year in school. We are very very basic still but interested.

  • Accommodation


    You will have a small (14X14 feet) private cabin on our property. It is about 200 feet from our family home. It has heat and electricity, a fridge, toaster oven. It has a double bed and kitchen table but no running water; however there is an outhouse and you are very close to our home that has full facilities and it can be used at any time. Meals can be eaten in our home with us or if you prefer to eat on your own food will be provided.

    We can discuss pets. We operate a functioning farm with lots of animals so pets need to be talked about and arranged in advance. We have three large dogs currently.
