  • Description


    We are a retired husband and wife in our sixties, Andrej and Vida, and we own a small farm in the midst of the wilderness in Haloze, Slovenia. We have 5 grown up children and 6 grandchildren, who live elsewhere. We love nature and animals and on our 4,5 ha farm we have sheep, dogs, cats, chicken, pidgeons and bees. We are friendly and open people, who like meeting new acquaintences.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Our travellers will get to know life on the farm, they will experience Slovenian cuisine, get to live in fresh air and unspoilt nature, they will get to see wildlife,... They will also have the chance to have fun with us and our big family (19 people!) :)

  • Help


    We need someone who would help us with maintenance on the farm: cutting grass, help in the stables, feeding animals, work in the woods, gardening, landscaping, help with bees and honey,... Currently we are especially looking for workers for a bit tougher manual labour, such as carrying and planting trees in steep areas. There will be quite some work with these trees in March, and we will need all the help we can get!

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    The house and farm are located far away from the nearest village and difficult to reach with car. We will of course pick you up and drop you off to the best of our abilities. We will gladly show you the nearby city of Ptuj (the oldest city in Slovenia) and Maribor (the second biggest). There is also a possibility of joining us on a short vacation on the Croatian coast.
