    Description

    Hey nice and interested people out there,

    We would like to live and work with you, while showing you the life and the astonishing nature of the Southern Blackforest. We are a family of three including me and my two sons. My sons are currently studying in University, Simon(22) is studying Social Work and Sebastian(20) is studying Agriculture. In their free time they are often around to help. From time to time we also have friends stay and help us on the farm. Also, two cats and one dog are a part of our family.
    Our family runs two old typical farms here in the biosphere reserve, a type of National Park, at 1000 meters high. Its located near the border of Switzerland and France.
    Our work is based on the care and preservation of the meadows to support the growth of special local plants. For these reasons we have goats and highland cattle. Furthermore we are also taking care of some horses.

    Our daily work includes things like building fences, making firewood and bringing animals from one meadow to another. A special time is when we harvest the hay, usually somewhere between the start of June and the end of August.
    But in general we always appreciate help and besides the things we have to do, there is a lot of potential to do things you are interested in.
