  • Description


    Hi! Thank you for reading our profile.

    At our farm we grow organic Shiitake Mushrooms and we have a small vegetable garden. Due to the new policies from workaway we are not allowed to get you involved in growing mushrooms or we have to pay you minimum wages just like normal workers. We can only show you the farm and explain how we grow the mushrooms and tell you all about the growing proces.

    You can help in the vegetable garden and in the house maintenance though.

    We all love to meet new people from all over the world to work with and spend some good time. The village where we live is located in a very beautiful forested area. So if you like hiking in nature this is the place to be!
