  • Description

    Description

    We are a couple, Davor and Natasa , who got tired of urban life and a few years ago began to manage the 'farm'. Basically we moved under a rock. Not too far from the civilization, but just enough. We don't know exactly where we end and our flora and fauna friends begin, but we all like it this way.
    We try to produce fruit and vegetables for our own use. WE ARE VEGETARIANS + WE ALSO ACCEPT VEGETARIANS OR VEGANS ONLY! We speak English, Croatian and partially Italian. And we try to be as logged off as possible. (And we probably want to draw similar minded souls along, so know what to expect!)

    We can always use an extra hand or two. Keeping everything in shape and also doing completely new stuff. So, we've got loads of hard work to do. We've got loads of harder work to do. Sometimes we also have some fun things to do and some very boring - but nonetheless, all needs to be done. (A lot of mowing, weeding, fencing, digging etc. in short, seasonal editing + new projects).
    We have enough work for always and even more if one care to see.
    :)

    But, WE WOULD STRONGLY DISCOURAGE FROM COMING - ANYONE WITH A HABIT OF SUBSTANCE ABUSE!

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    With us you can enjoy working and living, as much as possible, in nature (outdoors). There's several ponds on our property with a lot of wildlife (birds, frogs, snakes, turtles, bats - you name it!).
    For those who appreciate being surrounded by friends from plant and animal kingdom.
    You can get to know a lot of different plants, most of them raised from seed - by us or by our friend.

    For nearby trips you can see the capital of Croatia, Zagreb (30 km), the capital of Slovenia, Ljubljana (100 km). And many more lesser known jewels..

    All or most of our works are outside based, also we don't consider cooking a work.

    We can always use an extra hand or two. Keeping everything in shape and also doing completely new stuff. So, we've got loads of hard work to do. We've got loads of harder work to do. Sometimes we also have some fun things to do and some very boring - but nonetheless, all needs to be done. (A lot of mowing, weeding, fencing, digging etc. in short, seasonal editing + new projects).
    If your idea of work is to do great imitation of working for the required amount of time, just to 'satisfy' our needs with fulfilling the working hours - please don't come. We need devoted and responsible people we can rely on.
    As said above we always have enough work for, a vegetarian or vegan, man and a woman - who is also capable of doing something on its own initiative (for example to water something if it needs watering, or to weed something if it needs weeding etc.)
