    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(24) is studying Social Work and Sebastian(22) 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, doing gardening, working in the forest or restoring our farms.

    We host persons who stay for minimum one week and we prefer longer stays. Please take care not to change your plans easily! We have to organise our time as well and if we give a place to one person often we have to refuse another.

    COVID-19: We still love to host! If you would like to live and work with us please be aware that we need a negative covid-test or a certificate taht shows that you have your vacination from you. We can offer you a test for free at our farm or you make one before you come, in this case it would be good if you can send us a copy or picture of an official certificate. Stay safe!
