    Description

    We are a vegan couple from Slovakia that met in the main town (Bratislava) and shortly after decided to leave it together and find a home in the beautiful nature of middle Slovakia. We found amazing old secluded settlement in the woods and knew it's the perfect home for us. It will take us few years to finish the reconstructions and to move there. We also plan to build a retreat centre there. For the time we'll be reconstructing we bought a nice countryside house were we currently live and started a little vegan rescue farm. Currently we have 3 male goats, female goat, 2 rams, two sheep, two rabbits, rooster and two dogs. Maybe we would like to open our doors to visitors and teach them about vegan lifestyle and let them fall in love with our rescued farm animals. We also want to start making artheterapy workshops in our beautiful garden. But of course for this we have to wait when the covid situation will be better. Now we are focused on animals, gardening, slowly reconstructing the old settlement.

    We promise a lot of love from our animals, for us they are the best therapists. :) We'll teach you how to make a lot of delicious vegan dishes, and help you reconnect with the nature and yourself. We own a lot of art supplies which we'll also gladly share with you. We often recycle things and give them a new life, you'll learn to create lot of things yourself at home, which saves nature and money. :) And something tells me after u'll be leaving us, u can start a fence building business, as we need to make new fences all the time because of our animals... <3

    We have a small vegan farm, all our animals were rescued because we believe they deserve a better life. We love them and care for them as for our own children. We live in a small village in south Slovakia surrounded by nature. Plus we have other settlement in the woods which we are reconstructing and we want to move there one day and build a retreat center there. We have a lot of work at both our settlements, in the garden and around our animals and all our projects. We are looking for animal lover who will help us take care of our animals and everything needed. We are learning to do everything by ourselves and we are gaining a lot of new skills which we'll gladly share with you and teach you. Or we'll learn together. :) Currently we have 3 male goats, female goat, 2 rams, two sheep, one female rabbit and one male rabbit(castrated), rooster and two dogs. Ideally we are looking for a couple OR a group of two - three friends. There's work that we'll need help with which better suits men but we might need a woman's gentle touch as well. That's why this is is ideal for a couple. But we are open to everything and individuals as well.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    To be willing to stay on a vegan diet is a must. It would be great if you are artistic as a big part of our world consists of art and poetry. If you like hiking, good for you! The nature here is amazing. And also you'll meet our traditional slovak folk architecture which is beautiful. All our houses are more than 100 years old! We have a piano and a guitar, so u don't have to leave your love, if that's your case.

    If you have a dog it has to be trainable not to chase and hunt our animals. We managed to train our dogs ourselves and we can provide a dog training guidance and advice.
