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

Our travellers have a chance to get familiar with a Hungarian culture and regional traditions of arts and cuisine.
They could learn all about the goats from the breeding and caring of them to milking and making cheese, yogurt or other diary products. They can get familiar with organic gardening and some art work with stone as well.
Main daily project: So we are looking for volunteers who will help with the gardening, housekeeping and prepareing some dishes together with the host. In reward we offer free accomodation and food three times a day.
Also if the volunteers willing to learn they get lessons and proper informations/practice of making the dairy products. The products made by our volunteers is for thier and our own consumption. They will get some goods of our homemade products as well. Gardening is usually seeding, planting, mulching and harvesting. Our method is without chemicals and pesticides. We don't use artificial fertelizers. In some occasion you can take part of the sculpture work and monument restoration.
