  • Description


    We have a small family, my daughter Caroline and myself Bert, project on organic farming, in Barnag close to Veszprém, Hungary. About 10 Ha of arable land and 2 Ha forest and a 300 m2 foli tunnel, situated in the Bakony region.
    I'm an experienced organic farmer from the Netherlands moved to Hungary after traveling around the world and having it as a passion to endorse my knowledge to the future generation and to create a living place/ refugium for insects, birds, etc. in an agricultural world of pesticides and fertilisers.
    We need help in building up and growing vegetables maintaining the land, forest and related crops (like Bukwheat, Afalfa, Spelt, Phacelia, sunflowers, soy beans) and related full flowering crops) and annexed buildings related to the project.

    different options, a smal house on the site + a movable house placed in the forest, a house in the village with 2 bedrooms, kitchen and bath room, but not as exciting as staying at the site.
    Food, breakfast and late brunch, all vegetarian, as we are to take in two times a day, will be organised with your support and taste as long as it is without garlic.
