    Description

    Hello Everybody!

    We are a couple who run a small organic farm with milking goats on the slopes of Mecsek mountains ca. 10 minitutes walk from the citycenter of Pecs.
    My profession is a sculpture and the farm is also my workplace.

    We have around 25 goats. Most of our time it s dedicated to the
    goats and also their enviroment: from taking care of them to the last step when we make fresh
    goat milk products (yogurt and cheese).
    We started our eco-friendly goat farm in 2012.
    We try to create an enviroment for a better life. Not only for the farm and its goats but also for people who come to visit us and want to feel taking part in everything this kind of life can give.

    Sometimes we welcome tourists who come and visit us,
    school classes or university students whom want to see and learn
    about organic farm. So if you are interested and maybe you already have some experience in goat farming you are the right candidate for helping us. We want to provide our animals
    with a happy home and minimize our footprint on the planet.
    Hope to hear from you! :)

    Best Regards, Gabor
