Due to the soon leaving of our volunteer Anthon, who has helped us so great the last 4 weeks, we are searching for someone, who would like to stay here between 2-3, perhaps 5 weeks? As soon as possible!
It mostly helps in the stables and feeding 4 horses and 15 sheep. As always, if you like to cook - you are always welcome, it's great to exchange recipes. I am still week but can help every day a bit more....
In the east of Belgium 2,5km from the border of Germany, you will find our farm. It is placed in a small village with nearly none public transport – especially at the weekends.
Within bikes reach you can find shops for almost everything, a cinema, swimming pool with a small sauna and fitness – if you are interested in such things. Nature is nearer – that you can find when you step outside!
Since 2010 the farm is completely biological – we produce milk, but also meet – where it starts to get a bit more complicated in the minds of the people today.

Everything about gardening, growing own seeds, preserving the harvest, farming on an non acer farm - we have horses, cows, sheep and chicken. Ride horses or enjoy the nature.
A word to volunteering times: We have no exact times, and everything depends on your will and skills. That means: If you are interested in helping milking – you are welcome. If you would like to cook or bake – why not? If you are the one for gardening? Or you are a creative soul and find you a project here? We will not stop you, you are welcome at any time at every work.
In the morning Walter and I start early with milking, and our braekfast ist around 8:30, so that is the time we make the timetable for the day. We found out that it is the best way to bring someone fast in, when he is working with one of us first. So, if you know what scill you have, you can decide, what you want to do. And belive me, you could manage more as you think at the moment!
The work will be, keeping the house and cooking a meal a day for my husband and you. And - teaching Walter English! He has learned a lot of words now since we have since 2012 volunteers. But until now, he has never had the possibility (and the will) to learn it propper. Now he suffers always when we would like to speak with all our wonderful folks, but this is the time - I will be in the hospital and he really is burning to learn it.
We do have two dogs that live with us in the house and it would be great to love them. I think they will suffer, too, when I am away.

We offer you a guestroom and also a place at our table. Delicious food fresh from the garden and stabels included!
We are no vegetarians and if you are, this is NOT the right place with us. We are christs, we practise our religion more or less, we eat sometimes pork – but also other things ;-) We have no problem with other religions or people, if they could acept us like we are.
But one good vegetarian dish in the week is welcome, and salad is normaly on the table.
No vegans, no diets (gluten free, lactose free, low carb...) - also no Paleo. Thank you for the understanding.
Our farm is our home and our work at one place - so we would like you to be careful and thinkful with all things - animals, plants and also humans here. It is no "ideological projekt" financed by work at other places but real farmwork, we and all that live with us (including our animals!), depends on it!
