  • Description


    We are a small Organic Farm in the middle of Germany near Witzenhausen. We are a young family (Sarah 32, Sven 36 and Mali 9 month) who studied organic agriculture and toke over the farm in 2017. We have cattle (Aberdeen Angus) and grow grain. We sell our products at our farm, in local organic shops and offer delivery service.
    We have many different projects to work on. We are quite busy with the farm work so there is always too less time for „private projects“. We are still renovating our house and have a big garden. Our daughter is also happy for babysitting. If you enjoy cooking, so please help us with this.

  • Accommodation


    We have two very nice caravans in a beautiful landscape right next to the cattle. Water is outside and the toilet is inside our house. We are planning to build a compost toilet near the caravans. So if you are a specialist in building a compost toilet please come and help us :–)
    For lunch we eat together with all the people who are working on the farm. We often eat meat. So if you are vegetarian or vegan you may prepare your own food.
