HORSES: In the months June, July, August we are looking for a women with experience with horses to help train some young Icelandic horses. You will be assisting a very experienced trainer, and will have the opportunity to learn a lot. This will not be full time so there will be some other jobs around the horses, vegetable garden, home and children.
UPDATE: Preparation for spring is here! Would love help preparing the vegetable garden. Because we don't use our outside space in winter for meals, we prefer a few longer-term solo people, so as not to crowd our personal space too much. Families are welcome again later in the year when we can use the outside spaces to eat and enjoy.
We, Rein (34) and Charlie (32), are constantly inspired by our shining lights, our daughter Astara (2) and baby boy Emrys. We have our own 5-hectare farm with food-forest and three lakes in the Netherlands, of which one hectare is 2-year old food-forest, and we have two separate paddock-paradises (one for male and other for female horses). We have a 10+ horses (not all ours), at least 15 adult chickens (and sometimes chicks too), 1 dog, 2 cats and lots of small wildlife in our food-forest.
We share our plot with Charlie's mother, who lives in a separate part of the farmhouse. We used to have a group accommodation that included rooms upstairs and a large living space, of which the latter has unfortunately burned down. The good news is that we still have a few of extra bedrooms upstairs that guests can use.
We'd love to host individuals or families who want to enjoy, learn and give back by working with us (see below). Depending of the number of people you can have your own room or may need to share. We can eat together (vegetarian and gluten free). We don't drink alcohol, do drugs or smoke and would appreciate to find like-minded people.

We love to share our vision on how to create a food-forest and self-sustainable farm, how to raise children and how to find happyness and keep it close :)

Depending on what you like to do you can help out with:
- our permaculture garden and food forest;
- general farm maintenance work and beautifying the space;
- taking care of the horses and/or chickens;
- babysit our 2-year old daughter (who's an absolute pleasure to play with);
- help cook meals (vegan & gluten free);
- general help around the house (cleaning etc).
We have several rooms upstairs, able to house up to 11 guests. You'll have to share the shower with us. You'll have enough space to create your own breakfast and lunch. This is all separate from our main living space. Depending on your needs and the work you do we'll share our living space and kitchen as needed. We have high-speed internet with WIFI that reaches upstairs.
We are located 3 minutes by car from Langeveen (cafe, snackbar, restaurant) and 5 minutes from Geesteren (closest supermarket and other shops). It's 10-15 minutes to other bigger towns/cities. We have bikes, with which you can reach the supermarket. The place is hard to reach with public transportation, but we can get you in Geesteren bus station if needed. There's a bunch of tourist stuff to do in this area. It's a great area for walking and hiking. By bike you can see even more. Within 30-40 minute drive there's some great things like Preston Palace (tropical swimming paradise + bowling + more), great sauna, big public lakes, great natural parcs, horse-back riding and more. A bit further you can go to things like the zoo in Emmen.
