  • Description


    Wood management and beam cutting in progress! In the next days, we will start with a shed roof construction. Keep in mind it is hard work! Please include in your email word Palecek so I know you read this info. Thank you!

    Our family farm is a beautiful and cosy place, where you will be able to spend some time. We have a big property with one main building and several side buildings. The most significant part of the property is fruit orchard. Mostly apple trees. We have a big friendly dog. Most of the time you will be on the farm with me. For the rest of my family, this farm is just a weekend thing.
    My name is Vojta (22), and I am a carpenter. I am easy going and very calm person. I have worked on several workaways myself and have enjoyed the experience, so I am looking forward to trying it as a host. I want everyone who comes here to feel welcome and for all of us to get the most out of the experience.

    Sometimes I am going to Prague; you are welcome to join me for a city trip, we have some excellent sightings there. I can give you a few tips.

    Three meals per day are provided. If there are more people here, we can split cooking among all of us if that is ok with you to experience other cultures through food! (which is the best!)

    How to get here:
    Our place is approx. 2 hours from Prague.
    Sometimes I am in Prague so I can pick you at the airport or somewhere in the city. If I am not there, there is always public transport. You can take the train to Chotěboř, or Golčův Jeníkov depends on our agreement.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    I am a carpenter, I can show you a lot of things about wood, and you can try a lot of things if you want. Also, we have a ceramics workshop here, that is fun! If you want to learn English or Czech, I am more than happy to help. And you can also learn several things about apple juice making and other fruit related stuff!

  • Help


    There are several options you can choose from. I am going to need help with building a roof above our new wood-burning bread oven. Also, I will hew beams for a new shed and sauna that can be interesting to try and see. There is a lot of work for carpenters and other handy people. Or people that are interested in this kind of manual labour. Through the summer or late summer, there is apple picking from our apple trees. And then making apple juice on our big machines. If you want I can teach you all about this delicious drink or other stuff you could be interested in!
