    Description

    If you are looking for a (most of the time) quite place close to nature you will like our farm.
    We moved here almost ten years ago and still like to discover new things here but also enjoy to meet new people with new ideas. Some of our best friends we met through workaway.
    Our family is just two people but also two dogs, a cat, three horses and three sheep. Honestly we are a bit crazy about them and so they are all a bit spoiled. :)
    When ever we have time we like to show you our favorite spots, the cute little old towns around and the beautiful nature. Or we might go on a stand up paddle tour, for a hike or biking. If you like water there is a pond for swimming close by and lots of little rivers and canals. Or you can use a bike and discover the area.
    There is a train station in our town, so you can easily catch a train to Berlin or just to the next town. There is also a little shop if you need anything, but we will provide you with food (vegan) and also take you shopping with us.
    We are having guest rooms and an apartment we rent to holiday guest, You would stay in one of those rooms with your own bathroom. There is a kitchen outside you can use at any time. There will always be everything for you available but we might not be able to cook for you/us every day as some days are just packed with other things. Or maybe you like to cook for all of us? :)
    This is not the right place for you if you are looking to learn about farm work or for a place with lots of entertainment.
    There is always a lot to do like mowing, fencing, picking weeds. Also some organising and cleaning. Sometimes you will have to work alone, but you can schedule the day how it works best for you. If you are interested and if you can work very exact, you can help us in our little soap factory here on the farm. You can be sure that your bathroom will be provided with the best soap. :D
    Any questions? Feel free to ask us anything!

    It's probably like any other bigger property, there is always plenty of chores. A lot more during the warm month of the year than in winter: The garden always needs some attention like mowing, picking weeds and fencing. Also constructing work, cleaning and renovating.

    You would sleep in one of our guestrooms with own bath. You can use a bike to explore the villages or nature around the farm. There is WiFi and during the summer a kitchen outside that can be used. There is a terrace behind the barn where you can enjoy the sun. If we have guest we would like you to consider their needs.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    We are cooking and eating only vegan and it's delicious! :)
    There is a train station in town but it's way more fun to get around by bike. There are hardly any tourists here. So if you want to get off the beaten track, you will like it here and discover some things you can't find in a lonely planet.
