    Description

    (We can only take people with a EU/EFTA citizenship because of swiss employment law)
    Hey Workawayers! Welcome to our farm (also couples are welcome). We are a young family with 4 boys (2015, 2017, 2018, 2020), living up in the Swiss Mountains (Zweisimmen) where we have our organic farm. We have mainly sheep for milking and we started manufacturing our own yogurt, cheese and milk products directly here on the farm. All these products we try to sell in our region. In summer there is a big garden where we produce our own vegetables. We love life and we like a lot to have people from all over the world around us and getting to know them!
    We still have many ideas what we could start on our farm and we are also open for new inputs. But sometimes we can not catch up with all our plans so we take things just step by step!
    We live about 20 minutes by foot from the village (where you can find some stores and restaurants) and from the train station. It's a great region for outdoor sports. In winter you find ski lifts and slopes as well as places for cross country skiing and sledding. In summer it is a beautiful area for hiking and all kind of outdoor activities.
    We are convinced christians and we try to live those values in our daily life. Nevertheless we are open to meet people with another religious background and with different opinions.

  • Help

    Help

    We are especially looking out for people who come for 2 and more weeks and help us with childcare, cleaning the house and cooking, because here in Switzerland a farm with its own manufacture gives a lot of office work that only we self can do. We also are looking for people who help us with maintenance work around the farm as well as for some help in gardening (mostly in spring and summer) and landscape help. So if you want to help with these things it is important that you know how tho handel a saw or a shovel - just have some practical skills. In summer you would help with hay harvest. If you are interested in seeing how we milk our sheep or how we produce our cheese, you are welcome to join us and take a look!

    Accommodation

    Our mobile home - your housing! You would stay in the heated mobile home. It is a cozy place even in winter. You have a big bed, a table and a small kitchen where you can cook your tea or your coffee. The bathroom is in the house, so you would need to walk a few meters for showering or using the toilet. Breakfast, lunch and dinner you will eat with us. If you wish to cook from time to time something on your own you can do so. There is a cooking spot in the mobile home. There is no running water - a canister with clean water is provided!
