  • Description


    Housesitters wanted for a couple of weeks during end June to end July. We would teach you necessary farm tasks for a couple of weeks an leave you alone for two weeks. Support from Friends ist available If needed. Please just clean and serious people who are able and willing to take care of lifestock and plants ans our home. Driving license required. Hope to hear from you.

    Everybody welcome here, BUT please make sure if you come here that you are here with your heart and your soul. Our life is pretty busy, because of jobs, farm and children we are not tooooo flexible in our allday life. So, the only thing we will not accept anymore are people who are having another agenda on the side. We accept that everybody is having his/her own goals and dreams but we are not able to provide a cheap hotel stay for digital nomads or something like this. It is not about working hours, but especially we ask for people who are interested in
    - our country
    - our family
    - our farm
    Another thing is that we expect people to hold their promises and arragements. We never broke arrangements and we expect the same of people coming here. Welcome.

    Hello everybody,

    We are Daniela (30), Christian (33), our son Hendrik (6) and Jannik (4) and Elena (3). Moreover there is Honey, the wonderful dog, a Cat,some sheep, ducks, chicken, fish and free range pigs. We try to get better in permaculture and live with nature as good as possible.
    We have been part of workaway ourselves and started becoming Hosts in 2011 and had absolutely fantastic helpers since that time. Out house is big and comfortable and we are happy to share it with you.

    The type of work depends mostly on your skills and if you are willing to learn new things. We are happy to share our home and knowledge with you and you should be able to do the same.

    We are running a property with 4 ponds where we get our fish from, in summer we spend lots of time there because we are having a wonderful lake for swimming as well.

    What we expect:
    Self initiative
    Sense of responsibility

    Types of work:
    Renovation of a trailor, Conversion into a tiny house
    Animal care
    General maintenance and repair stuff
    Building & renovation (clay, wood,.....)

    If you like our profile don't hesitate to write us, we welcome anybody here who is willing to integrate in our family and adapt to our daily rhythm.
    Long term arrangements preferred because of our children.
