  • Description

    Description

    We live in a little village with about 80 inhabitants in the south of Germany close to the Swiss-border.
    We are:
    A german-swiss couple (Christine and Raphael) and two children (15 and 19 years). Our older two children (24 and 27) moved out already.
    We have a small farm with: some cows, 4 horses, 2 sheperd dogs, 2 goats, about 10 chicken, 2 dugs, 2 rabbits and 3 cats.
    Also there is a garden in which we mainly grow herbs and berries. On our fruit meadow we have apple-trees and other fruit-trees like plum trees.
    During the summertime, the cows are mostly outside on a pasture.
    At the moment we have one very nice cow that gives milk. We only milk her by hand. Besides from drinking it we use the milk to make yoghurt, quark and sometimes cheese.

    Due to our animals, we have a hard time travelling, so we are happy to welcome people from all over the world at our home and learn about your culture, ideas, food and language.

    Since we both have part-time-jobs outside the house, we could need some help on our small farm. All animals are well treated and tame.
    If you are interested in horse-training you can observe it once a week.
