Hi all !
We are Braco and Biba, retired couple, parents of three daughters and grandparents of six grandsons. We are passionate about nature and producing healthy organic food . Last year we retired and moved to an old farm and started over.
Our farm is located in the hearth of Sumadija, the most beautiful part of Serbia with the most extraordinary landscape of green hills and valleys. The property is on 600m height surrounded by forest and hill from which we can see night lights from the city of Cacak (15 km). Our farm is 9ha in size and registered as an organic farm for cultivating raspberry, sour cherry, blackberry and plum on big scale (3.5 ha) and many varieties of other fruits. Most of our food comes from our garden and orchard. We need some help depending on the season but now we seek helpers to pick raspberry from mid of June to mid of July.
Big part of family is our dog Milly (half terrier/half domestic breed) and two kittens.
