We are a Family of 4 People living down in the valley of Lauterbrunnen. Most of our 14 cattle and 15 goats stay on the high pastures in summer for producing cheese. During this periode we make hay for winter on our fields in and around Lauterbrunnen. For this hard work we would welcome helping hands and our volounteers should be in good physical shape. Most of the work is done with handrakes and pitchforks. We work as a family team and usually from 1 pm until 6-7 pm. In wintertime we have to care the animals in the morning and in the eavening. Through the day, the workawayer are free.
Some of our fields are rather steep and good hiking boots are required. As farmers we depend on the weather and so we sometimes work on weekends if the weather was too bad during the week.
