    We – that’s me, Eva and Andy with our two little sons Elliot and Robin – have lived on the farm since 2018. I said goodbye to computer life and my previous fancy climate NGO job to make a real local difference at the family farm where I grew up. Our vision is to implement a sustainable farm on the principles of permaculture.

    Our farm has a large existing infrastructure with many buildings and equipment (it is 26 hectars, including 10 hectars of forest). In 2019 have renovated the place to offer farm accommodation in the lovely salzburg lake district, where we are located. In total, we can host more than 20 guests. We have also built a seminar room and providing catering with own produce in our existing farm tavern. This year is our 2nd year of market gardening with 1.500m2 including a caterpillar tunnel and a greenhouse which we still have to rig up. We aim to sell our produce through CSA and working with a local hotel as well as processing for our our products. We also have an orchard, a orchard nursery and animals: 300 chickens, 5 lovely sheep and 2 naughty donkeys.

    Currently there is me, Eva and my partner Andy and our lovely Aneta and Pia who deal with catering and of vegetables and always make sure there is a laugh and a lovely meal waiting. My parents also live on the farm - my mum is an excellent baker in her bread baking house and my dad is a seasoned farmer and manages the forest. Andy is still mostly working behind the computer which is the reason why we are looking for a skilled and handy buddy to support us girls :). The profile picture is of Tibo, a great friend we found through workaway and we hope we find someone for this year who is happy to join us for a small adventure.

    Our goal is to become a self-sufficient farm while enjoying a lovely vibe, working with nice people, and have fun. We love to feed ourselves and offer healthy organic food to locals and our guests. In addition to our chickens, we have a road-side "egg-mobile" with a couple of chickens and a self-service egg machine, which we aim to expand into a market stall for our produce. We live in the midst of a very traditional surrounding but have ourselves traveled for most of our lives (we are 40, and have traveled for about 20 years) - that being said, we are very exotic animals around here. Our new challenge is to continue traveling and meeting interesting people without moving around :).
