  • Help


    during the winter/spring we need helpers for a minimum stay of 6 weeks.

    for this winter we are looking for people who love to be around horses, and have some building experience. You do not need to ride a horse but you might learn a bit with us. We are looking for people for some small building projects. Building a production/fruiting room for the mushrooms, a waterstorage and some general forresting tasks are ahead of us. So it might be beneficial if you have some basic knowledge in these fields. A couple, or close friends would be most welcome.
    As a plus for you, we will offer some riding lessons and hacks on a horseback.

    You will be part of our family and love to share our knowledge about processing medicinal mushrooms and freedom based horsework.
    During the winterour minimum stay is at least 6 weeks...we prefer long timers.
