  • Descripción


    We are a family of 5. My wife is from Transylvania and grew up in an off grid community, until she was 10 years old, using a bartering system, exchanging goods, produce and physical work. I was born and raised on the California coast and moved to Virginia as an adult. Our two boys were born in Virginia. When they reached the ages of 3 and 5, we thought we would expose them to a different culture and smaller community life, so we moved to Hungary.
    Our family is multi-lingual. The children are fluent in English and Hungarian, and my wife is also fluent in Romanian as well. We are big in crafting with leather and wood and play music together most days (drums, violin, banjo, recorder, harmonica, guitar, accordion, etc) .

Center yourself among blooming cherry trees and songs of the birds as you drink a fresh ground cup of coffee and bite into a slice of fresh baked bread. Walk the homestead and great the chickens and ducks as you make your way to the back garden. Put in some honest tasks either digging and mixing soil, tending to the vegetable garden or nursery, feeding/milking the goats, planting a couple fruit trees or building a fence from locally collected trees.

    We are in the process of turning all 3 properties into self-sustainable farms using natural, permaculture/bio-dynamic practices and techniques that we have learned over the years. Currently we have projects that range from planting bushes, trees gardens, making a fishpond, swales for water retention to working with animals, milking goats and turning to cheese to construction with traditional building materials and techniques. All properties have off-grid solar panel systems.

    We have 3 properties in Hungary that we are developing for sustainable living, to teach our children the values and lessons from living a simple life in harmony with nature. We are obsessed with alternative living . One property, our main residence, is in a small village North West of Budapest. Here we have an off-grid solar system, ducks and chickens, a green house, young fruit trees and a permaculture/bio-dynamic garden and forest garden. The other 2 properties are 8km away on a hill with a scenic view. There we have a fruit tree orchard, with various cherry, plum and other fruit trees, goats and off-grid living tiny houses.

    Algo más...

    We enjoy growing, harvesting and cooking our own food and sourcing our own materials for making crafts, structures and instruments. Hiking in local vineyards or walking along ancient Roman roads is as close as walking up the street. Bluegrass banjo often generates a improvisational sing-a-long and frequent quests keep each day eventful and unpredictable. Budapest is easily accessible by car or bus and we often go for a day trip.
