  • Description


    Our farm houses are situated in the north of Germany near Osnabrück, in the middle of a former moor, beautiful countryside, with fascinating sunrises. Nevertheless it´s only 20 minutes by car to Osnabrück and 10 by bike to Damme. there is a little train station nearby.
    We are around 5 persons, taking care of 2 houses, 6 horses, , cats and 1dog. We manage 15 ha land and forest, inside in it a " great wood-labyrinth" with 1000 trees.

    We have changed our philosophy and are looking to a new idea about "Auszeit", that means finding a regeneration for burn-out persons, children and parents to have some time together and so on.
    We work together with the Waldorf-School-pedagogy, we live with bio-food and try to live a good way with nature and animals .
