Our farm of 12 hectars is a Biofarm. Most of our products is selfsufficiency production, only lambs are sold on the market. It's not a profitable farm. We produce electric power and have a natural waste water treatment. Our neighbor is organic too, so we get good milk. Just now I, Lydia, run the farm alone most of the time but get help by my son, who is studying geography in Heidelberg. My other adult children come from time to time together with their families for help. I enjoy the contact with young helpers from everywhere on the globe and until now I hosted more than 250. Be the next!
This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
You might gain experience in selfsufficiency production, we are eager to learn more about your country, your culture, your kitchen, there use to be very interesting discussions, you might practise your German language knowledge as we don't speek regional dialect, but German, but if you need help you also could communicate in French and Spanish with us. Our animals are very cute, you'll love them. The afternoon is your time off, you may take a bike or do a trip, a natural river pool is near by. It's a lovely landscape and a nice little town at 4 kms from us.
