    Description

    Hallo!

    Me and my husband are running a small farm.
    Also we rent out two small holiday apartments all year round. Our son Adrian (24) visits us during the weekends but is living in Dresden during the week.

    We also own two horses (Pirat & Simon), 1 cats (Tabbo), a few rabbits, guinea pigs and our dog 'Lana'.

    We are located in 'Rohna', a village in Thuringia, the so called 'green heart of Germany'.
    It's a very small (about 60 inhabitants) and romantic village hidden in the green landscape. We are 150km away from Dresden and 85km from Erfurt, near Gera and Weida.

    We would be happy to host motivated single persons but also friends or couples for a minimum of 2 weeks (Attention: In times of Corona minimum would be 4 weeks for the reason of some quarantine at the beginning).

    At the moment we're looking for workawayers:
    feel free to suggest any dates (t.b.a)

  • Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We offer you the possibility to learn a lot about animals, general maintenance around our farm and basic crafts.
    If you're interested, we can show you how to operate tractors and repair motorbikes (or drive them ;) )
    In addition we'd like to teach you some german but we'd also like to improve ourselfes.

    For the time you're staying with us we'd like you to be part of our family.
    For us it is all about cultural exchange, meeting new persons and learn about daily life in other countries (we can't travel that much anymore cause we can't leave the animals on their own). :)

  • Help

    Help

    Throughout the whole year we are looking for help with our animals like feeding, brushing and walking the dog.
    And you can go horse riding with one of us sometimes.
    Also we need some help during the summer harvesting our hay using our tractos ( an old one built 1961 and a newer and bigger one).
    Moreover we're looking for kind people helping us hosting guests in our holiday apartments. Therefore we need to clean those but also look after the kids, teach horse riding and offer them a great time.
    You can also learn yarn spinning and weaving to help us with the courses we're offering.

    In the end there is a lot of general tasks like cooking, shopping, but also some gardening and building/repairing.

    We're asking for around 4-5 hours help/day depending on if there are some guests visiting or if we're harvesting hay or renovating something but it will be no problem to take a day off ;)

    Accommodation

    Depending on if there's another workawayer staying with us at the same time we can offer you seperated bedrooms in a flat together or also a seperated flat on your own (also depending on if our holiday appartments are rent).

    We provide you towels and hygienic products and mostly any other stuff you're not able to bring with you.
    Also we would like to take our meals together: breakfast and dinner definitely, for lunch feel free to use our fridge. (:

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    Rohna is located in a small valley so you're able to go for a walk in the forest nearby with our dog or go for a horse ride along the 'Auma', the small river passing through our village.

    There are also some nice local sights which can be visited in the surrounding villages and towns.
    If you want to we can also visit some sights together or you can ask to go for a motorbike ride. ;)

    Please note that there is no public transport in Rohna execpt 5 school buses/day. The next train station is 3 km away, the next supermarket around 10km. So if you want to leave for a day trip or something feel free to ask us if we're able to get you to the train station or somewhere else. Otherwise you're free to use our bycicles (there are some really nice bycicle paths around!) (:

    Bye for now!
    Anne & Manfred & Adrian
