    Hi, we are small family farm located in east end of Czech Republic in White Carpathien (Bile Karpaty) mountains, in village Žítková. Ota(40), Klára(35), our kids (10, 8, 5).
    We take care of 36 hectares of meadows, pastures, fields, orchards, forest, people, cows, ship, horses, chicken, bees...All organic. Gan Eden but not perfect.
    Our house is open for all tolerant and friendly people ( who want also help us!☺️)
    We need help but we want to listen to stories, to learn from you,...
    Accommodation: you can stay in wooden barn (with electricity and water, 50 meters far from house) or in tent or inside our house in spare room full of toys.
    Inside our house is toilet, bathroom with hot water and wifi.
    Food: food we want to share with you is mainly from our own production. Vegetable, fruits, flour for bread, ship meat, eggs, cow milk, cheese, yoghurt, can also cook, but dont have to.
    We need to help with different farming duties, some rather old-fashioned (hand milking of cows, cutting grass with scythe, raking in hilly terrain, field work with horses) or normal works, like managing fences for animals, weeding, planting in garden,...
    Our most important work during summer months is cutting grass and preparing hay for winter. For this we use 2 old tractors, lawn movers, brush cutters.
    We have just few experience with volunteers. We are expecting open-minded people who would like to help us and become part of our family while staying here. We are looking forward to listen to your stories, experience and opinions. We will be happy if you could one day in a week make some trip around and we will have private family time.
    Language skills: Ota has bad english and bad hebrew but learns and tries hard to improve☺️ Klara has better english, kids are usually very shy...
    Friday evenings and Saturdays is (usually) no work, we make kiddush and havdalah.
    In your free time you can go swimming in small lake (1 km) or go to pub (1km) or walk in beautiful forest all around. There are few nice towns with castles not far and some funny summer music festivals...
    What more? Looking gorward to meet you!
