  • Description


    We are a large blended family with children and animals on an organic farm with dairy cows, pigs, rabbits, chickens and a large area with a garden and trees. But you don't have to help with anything that is part of the agricultural yield. We still have rabbits and chickens and a big turnaround. It would be nice if you would enjoy being with the children, helping with the cooking and doing the kitchen and helping also Outside and Inside.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We live traditionally and like to give insight into our lives. We would be happy to show you Swiss recipes and baking bread. We also know a few nice corners and look forward to a nice exchange where you can pass on joy to each other. It is important to us that we are a good role model to the children. So we don't use drugs and we don't want that here either. If someone smokes, please do not smoke in front of the children. With us there are many beautiful little moments.

    We Start our day early in the Morning.It would be nice if someone would also enjoy contributing. When you can prepare a meal on your own and then tidy up the kitchen again. Also like to spend time with the children. Take care of the children so we can go away. Do some great cooking together. Start a nice project in the garden ..

    It is also important that we are always tired very early in the evening and therefore not much work after . Es wäre schön wenn jemand auch selber Freude hat sich einzubringen. Wenn man selbständig ein Essen zubereiten kann und die Küche danach wieder aufräumen. Gerne auch mit den Kindern Zeit verbringen. Mal die Kinder hüten damit wir weggehen können. Gemeinsam was grosses Garten ein schönes Projekt starten.. leider ist der Garten wegen den Kindern zu kurz gekommen.
    Es wäre schön wenn sich unser Gast auch als Vorbild für die Kinder unserem Rhytmus anpassen kann und entweder am vormittags zb 7 bis 12 Uhr mithilft oder dann am Nachmittag.
    Es ist noch wichtig, dass wir am Abend immer sehr früh müde sind und daher ab 19.00 nicht mehr viel läuft ausser wenn viel Arbeit anfällt sind wir lange wach.

  • Accommodation


    We have a guest room, it is simply furnished and on the top floor. There is also a toilet and shower there. The 2 oldest children also sleep on the upper floor.
    We always eat 3 times a day. Sometimes with my grandfather. We are omnivores and also feed on our milk / eggs / meat.
    It would be good if you would like to actively help with the meal, also with your own ideas, but always simple .. we eat a lot of potatoes.
    Since it is sometimes very turbulent while eating, 2 meals with the guest would be best.
