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.
