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.
