  • Description

    Description

    We are a small organic farm in the south of Bavaria. Our wonderful animals make up the heart of our farm as we have horses, cows, calves (who run at least 12 weeks with their own mothers), oxes, bulls, chicken and cats. There's a beautiful garden, called Phönix, with vegetables, herbs and flowers, and about 4 hectares of woodland, too. You could help with the animals, cleaning the stables, feeding, walking into the pastures (some of our cows spend the summer on an alp) or just hug them. From spring to fall there is a lot of work in the garden, during the winter we spend more time in the woods. We are trying to live from the fruits, vegetables, eggs, milk and meat of the farm. In the future we would like to make our own flour.
    You could experience a deep connection to nature, almost independency with food, listening to the soil, the animals and the plants and work after their needs.
    I am 28 years old and would be very happy about someone joining this extraordinary gift with me.
    I am listening and speaking a lot with nature, the animals and the plants, like that kind of a working in a prayer of gratitude and being also a creater of natural art and harmony.
    The vision/next step for the future of our farm is to found a kind of farm-family with different people living and helping together and living from the produce of the farm. So far we are only a tiny community consisting of our farmer, a young gifted lady (organiser, including head of gardening and animal communication) and a young family with two little kids (1 and 3 years old).

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Some of the greatest things around the farm is to walk through the woodlands, visit the rivers or the alp. We are an open-minded uncomplicated bunch and want to enjoy life in the harmony with nature.

    You don´t need special skills. Just love in the work with the creatures and the willingness to learn. We look forward to teaching you everything we know and learn from you, in return (for example improving my English:-) and your vision of the world. You shouldn´t be afraid of big animals. If you are an artisanal person, there will be even more we could learn from you.

    You will have your own room in the upper flat of the new farmhouse. This flat is very colourful. The guestroom for example is green, the kitchen pink. We are cooking only on wooden-fire, most of the time vegetarian meals, but if you have special skills in preparing meat, I would love to learn from you.
