  • Descripción


    My main objective is to develop commercially viable, non-industrial food production systems. I am also interested in facilitating the re-introduction of heritage plant varieties (edible perennials), and initiating a study on the health benefits of traditional diets (raw milk, pickled vegetables, etc)

    The farm has 150 water buffalo that are used for fresh milk, butter and fresh cheese.

    We have a 2.5 hectare food forest in progress and raised bed gardens for the production of vegetables and herbs, an area which we will be expanding in 2014.

    We keep 2 horses that are used for riding and I am interested in developing this further, possibly as a future eco-tourism venture.

    The rooms are comfortable (double bunk beds) with a shared spacious kitchen and bathroom. Volunteers have the benefits of fresh buffalo milk, butter and cheese, and organic vegetables from the garden.

    We are NOT a place for "lounge lizards", but our guidelines are few and simple. You WILL be expected to put in 4-5 hours' help each day with at least one day off per week, but in exchange we provide excellent food and comfortable accommodation for our helpers. Volunteers with practical skills, such as carpentry, construction, veg growing or cooking, are particularly welcome! Those motivated to contribute something tangible to the farm will do well here.

    The farm is situated on a 200 hectare property in a beautiful valley. An oak forest borders the top pastures and is home to the local wildlife (brown bear, fox, wild boar, wolves and deer).

  • Ayuda


    1. Gardening experience would be welcome as I would like to expand the annual vegetable beds next year. Also, taking care of the plants within the food forest- watering, mulching, pruning- would be useful.
    2. Horse riding/stable experience is necessary for those wishing to work with the horses. We would like to put some order into the stables and also regularly exercise the horses....maybe go out riding in the surrounding area.
    3. Anyone with cheese making experience would be a great advantage to develop our products and assist with general health and safety procedures for a small production unit.
    4. Carpenters/builders are ALWAYS wanted- we have a variety of projects underway and in the planning stages.
