    UPDATE: If you don't mind to stay in a tent or if have your own van we always have a lot of possibilities for volunteers especially if you lik cooking nice food :). Unfortunately our other accommodations are occupied.

    From mid August till October we are still looking for extra pair of hands to help on our farm & campground, and we have accommodations available.
    ----------------------------------------------------------
    Are you looking for a nice rural experience? Check out our profile! We have a 10 hectare farm, have dairy sheep and goats (for cheese, yogurt, and milk), three ponies (for the kids in the summer months), two pigs and some chickens. We have a large vegetable garden and an orchard. From May till September we run a small campsite where families can experience the wonderful life of living on a farm in beautiful rural Slovakia. It is a great place if you like nature, animals and people. Several hikes start direct from the campsite.

    If you are an positive and reliable person who wants to be outdoors and enjoy fresh air and like to do physical work you are more then welcome. In the summer our place is very lively, international and full of happy holiday people at our place! In the low season we often have several volunteers with who we cook in turns and dinner is a happening of sharing food, culture and nice stories.

    Our volunteers do help with physical farm work (Spring & Autumn) and help at our campsite (July/August) but in return you get enough time of to enjoy the environment.

    We = an international family of three (Arnold, Bernadette and our daughter Katinka) which have settled after an international career in 2008 'in the middle of no-where' of beautiful rural Slovakia. We speak English, French, Dutch and German. We do appreciate to get requests addressed to us (we even have names :) ) and not a copy-and-paste which has been sent to many places. Because will also and always answer you a.s.a.p and personally. Just write to us first, later you can still contact the other hosts :)

    We have a nice volunteers wagon (see pictures), a cosy tiny caravan and we have beautiful bathrooms to use. On our calendar you can see for which period we need volunteers, however if you have your own accommodation like a campervan or caravan or whatever or if you are willing to stay in our tent, we might also be able to host you when the calendar is on 'yellow'. So if you have your own accommodation; Please contact us anyway especially if you have some very useful skills :)

    You make your own breakfast (we provide the ingredients like bread, marmalade, eggs, milk, yogurt, tea, etc. We share lunch and dinner and we all cook in turns or a volunteer cooks as part as their 'job'. Dinner is, vegetarian, on time and food is plenty :) We do the shopping for the meals, or you do and we reimburse you, what ever you and we like. Only your personal expenses are on your own account. During the week, we can always give you a ride to the nearest village.

    So far we have had great experiences with WorkAwayers! We would like to go on meeting nice people and getting help in this way. Come and have a great time on our Farm and Campsite.

    From April till October we welcome volunteers on our farm and campsite.

    In April, May and June we have lambs and get ready for the camping season, help is needed with things like mowing grass, working in the vegetable garden, erecting tents and some construction work. Lot of it is farm work, so rather physical. However we will see together what need to be done and what you like to do. You should like solitude or come with a friend in Spring.

    In July and August you can help us with the campsite (mowing grass, cleaning tents, cleaning the pool, cooking, watering plants) and sometimes on the farm (bringing water to the animals, checking fences, weeding in the vegetable garden), it might also involve shopping in the towns around us (to get things for the campsite or farm) so if you can drive a car that will be very practical. If you can cook that is great too. We will see together which tasks suits you the best.
    Guest and work-awayers easily mix during the summer months, so enjoying interaction with families from all over Europe is a big plus in July and August.

    We prefer couples in the Summer or two persons who travel together but are open for other suggestions.

    In September and October the help can be on the farm including cleaning stables, or cutting wood or maintenance of our buildings (like painting).

    Of course you are welcome to experience different types of 'farm work' if you want to!

    We are always looking for optimistic and nice people who like other people incl. children, animals and nature. Our ideal work-awayer is friendly, responsible, self motivated and we can count on her/him.

    We have a private wagon and a caravan for our volunteers with a bed, kitchen, table, chairs etc. Sanitary facilities are on the campsite and nice and clean. You can make a camp fire :) or join others who will certainly do.

    We have free but limited WiFi, a big set-up-pool, and in July and August we have a communal diner with all guests and volunteers twice a week.

    Please note that you should be able to cook since we cook in turns and eat together. All products we produce on our farm (dairy, eggs and vegetables when available) bread and other ingredients for the three daily meals, tea and coffee etc. are on our account. Private groceries (like alcohol and sweets) are on your account. You can always get a lift to the local village.

    We are far from bus stops, we can pick you up at the nearest bus station (6km) or when you come from Hungary we can collect you at the border (Balassagyarmat - about 22km). Of course we will also bring you to the bus station at the end of your stay.

    "Our experience here as Workaway Ambassadors was great. Not only did we learn a lot about farming but we met the best people. The hosts are really loving people and they made everything with love. They are very hardworkers and funny and they make the best cheese ever! Their daughter is adorable and we really get along with her, we miss her and she became as our little niece. All the animals are really good and you can have funny moments with the baby goats or feeding the little lambs. The wagon has everything you need and they make sure that you have everything to eat. We have nothing but thanks to you and we really hope to come back some day."

    - Flavia and Diego (Workaway Ambassadors)
