We have a family farm in Estonia on an island called Saaremaa. It's a busy household with lots of going on all the time. There is 7 of us: Anne (53), Jaan (53), Maido (36), Mare (31), Joanna (4), Birgit (2) and Otto (1 month). We grow a little bit of everything, mostly beef and dairy cattle, poultry and vegetables. We also have some fruit trees and berry bushes, sheep, goats, a dog and cats. Our family is trying to be as self-sufficient as we can, so we preserve food for the winter and also forage (berries, mushrooms, herbs). Farm is located 4 km from the sea and 8 km from the nearest town.

We have travelled around a fair bit ourselves and Mare has also volunteered in organic farms in Australia, so we have many stories to share. You can learn about many aspects of farming, like animal husbandry and growing vegetables. Also Estonian traditional cooking, preserving food for winter, herbal medicines. Anne is also interested in traditional healing methods like leech therapy. We would also love to learn your language.

In spring and summer we need help with garden work (sowing, planting, weeding, mowing the lawn etc.), cooking, cleaning, doing dishes, playing with kids, picking eggs, etc. depends whats going on.
Work depends a lot of the time of the year. Spring to autumn there is more work in the garden and fields (digging, planting, seeding, weeding, picking berries etc.) Winter time mostly in the chicken shed (feeding, picking and packing eggs). If you have some skills like building it would be really handy but if not you're still welcome.

You will have your own room in the workers apartment, which is located at our dairy farm. There is a shower and a kitchen. You can have your breakfast and dinner there (we provide the food of mostly what we grow in the farm), lunch is in the family house which is located 1 km from the apartment.
The farm is located 8 km from the town and 4 km from the sea. So on your time off you can always go there. We have bicycles to lend, there are also buses a few times a day. We go to town sometimes by car and can drop you off and pick you up. Town has many historical buildings like 14th century castle that has a museum inside. There´s nice cafes and art galleries, also a lot of events going on the summer time. Summer is a busy time in our farm but we always try to find some time to relax ourselves. We like going to the beach with our dog often. There´s many nice beaches for swimming and sunbathing. Smoking is okay outdoors. Mixed diet. Vegetarians welcome.
