    Description

    Hi! We are a openminded family of five, living on a lovely little farm in the countryside of switzerland.
    The kids (Aline 24, Martin 22 and Denise 20) are most of the time working or travelling and almost moved out, so we are looking for some help and some more life in our house and surroundings.

    We basically need help in and around the house; in summer and autumn there are so many fruits that needs to be picked ( we have cherries, strawberries, rasperries, blueberries, kiwis, apples, plums..) We are doing a lot with them, like cooking jam, drying and conservating them. Then I have a huge garden with vegetables and flowers where is always some deadheading or weeding that needs to be done.

    Ruedi is a carpenter and runs his own little buissnes beside the farm.On our farm we only have a few cows, four pigs, two cats and our dog joya. The grandparents who live next to us (our only neighbors) are also keeping some chickens.

    Me, Irene and my husband Ruedi love to travel and we are interested in other cultures, people and their stories! We've hosted exchange students from different parts of the world for three years and made so much good experiences with them. Our kids are not often at home, but they also love to get to know new people!
    Furthermore we are looking forward to learn new languages and everything about your culture and we are happy to teach you german (or even some swiss german phrases) if you are keen to learn that quite difficult language :)

    We are situated outside of the small lovely village called Huttwil. The area we live is beautiful, you just have to be aware that there is no regular bus transport in front of our house and the train station is reachable in about 15min by bike. But trust me, you will love it and there are cars and bikes you can borrow so it's easy to get around!
    The big cities like Lucerne, Zürich and Berne are all about 1h by train.

    Echange culturel et opportunités d'apprendre

    We are a lively family and like to be outside, hike, bike, travel.. We would love to show you some places in switzerland if we have time. This place is perfect if you want to expericence the real, calm switzerland, learn about farming, gardening or just want to be with a 100% swiss family! There is so much to see in the countryside here but however you are fast in the bigger cities. The trainsystem in switzerland is amazing and our country is small, so you can explore everything within a short time.
    We really appreciate the cultural exchange, to learn to see the world in a different way and making new friends!
    We can show you some typical swiss meals and if you like to cook, we are happy to taste your special meals!

    Help in the garden, with the animals or on the fields/in the woods. Some days it can be phisicaly hard, other days we just ask for a few light tasks, so you'll have plenty of time to explore switzerland; we are flexible regarding your days off.
    Help is very different each season, summer is our busiest season but don't hesitate to ask anytime! For example in winter there is Huttwil's amazing Christmasmarket where we are involved and always need some help.
    We are also open to new ideas and are looking forward to every skill you bring into our family!

    You will have your own room with a sheared bathroom. We are eating all together, so when you are working or around here while you are off, we are happy to share all the food with you. And we appreciate all help with cooking and preparing food. We are accepting vegetarians but we will not cook extra. So if you are vegetarian and want some special meals you would have to prepare them yourself.

    Autres infos...

    This place is not for you if you expect a bus in front of the house every five minutes and shopping in walking distance. You have to be aware that your hands can get dirty and work can be phisically hard.

    But you also have to know that we are a funny and sometimes crazy bunch of people and it will never get boring with us!

    We would love to hear from you!!

    Irene & Family
