    Description

    I am running a small organic holiday farm in a lovely region in Saxony. I always try to create a warm and welcoming home for guests and travelers. Everywhere you can sit around a wooden table peeling potatoes straight out of the organic field or reading books. We have 1 dog, 7 cows, 8 geese, 2 sheep, three cats, a bunch of chicken and two ponies.
    There are four cozy apartments fully equipped for families and we also offer sleeping in hey and camping on our meadow behind the farm. The farm is surrounded by gardens with lawns, meadows and fields. It is a delightful rural setting, 10 km from the towns of Reichenbach or Zwickau. If you do not have an own car, you can use my car or go by bike and train (70 min to Leipzig or Dresden).

    We like to eat well, enjoy the outdoors and spend time in the company of my family and friends.
    I would love an extra pair of hands while we have holiday guests from spring until autumn. Someone fun, energetic and able to use initiative around the farm would be ideal. There are lots of different small jobs – no heavy work - so I am very flexible in what I could get you to do, but I am obviously not expecting you to do everything but would see your skills and then match them with jobs.


    If you would like more information on where I live and what we do please let me know or have a look at the website.

    I am totally open to offers. I would be happy to have someone who fits in,
    who can be at the farm with the holiday guests, if I have to pop out,
    who can help me to prepare a barbecue or a fire in the evening, making breakfast for the guests.
    who can help me with the garden, with the cleaning of the apartments,
    I don't mind, If you enjoy cooking or baking,
    Last but not least, I am looking for someone who keeps company with me and my son (10).

    On the other hand: If there is a volunteer, who can help me with general home maintainance type work; mainly painting and painting preparation work. Some general plastering/carpentry/building skills maybe be useful too, this would also be fine. I am flexible.

    10 km from the towns of Reichenbach or Zwickau in the west of Saxony. If you do not have an own car, you can use my car or go by bike and train (70 min to Leipzig or Dresden).
    Occasionally joining us on a trip out to sights and restaurants, events etc. is perfectly natural.
