  • Description


    Hi, my name is Cornelia, I am from Gemany and live in Austria where I have a 300 year old farm house.
    We have 30 hectare ground, mostly woodland/forest. The house lies quite remote, the next very small village is 3 kilomters away .
    The water in the wooden house comes from our own source, we have our own biological purification plant, solar panels, and a garden where we grow vegetables and a little greenhouse. And there is also a sauna.
    We have two little ponds which provided us with fish... but we have the feeling the fish all moved out :)
    But now there are more frogs, which is also nice. But we havent tried to eat them so far :)

    We are very keen on natural forestry, which means we try to keep our woods as sustainable as possible.
    It is a very quiet and beautiful place but you should take it in consideration that it can get lonely.
    You can take a bike or the car if you are a experienced driver to get around.

    We are looking for someone who is fun and open minded, used to beeing outside and do physical work, at least 21 years old and able to work independent and reliable.

    What else ...

    We eat very little meat, I am mostly vegetarian, so you should be fine with that. Since my daughter eats mostly vegan, I am familiar with that and it should be fine if you want to cook vegan food for us. I am keen on trying new things!
