  • Description


    We are Dutch, who live in a small farm in a very quiet location in the countryside in northwest Germany, where we live with our cows, goats, horses, dogs, chickens and fish. In our spare time we take care of the building and try to develop a small vegetable garden. The living conditions are rustic with limited internet and disturbing noise. We love our peaceful environment!

    From our experience it is best if helpers are not only willing to adapt, but are also actively interested in other cultures.If you work hard, are energetic and are looking for physical tasks in nature, please contact me.

    In general, the stay is from 2 to 4 weeks.

    Dutch, Frisian, German and English are spoken.

    You're welcome!
