We are especially interested in the following skills: carpentry, woodworking, experience with living fences, natural building, gardening. However, all applications are welcome.
A place for lovers of nature, art and music, where you can get away to a unique sanctuary and enjoy cultural exchange and a more sustainable way of living. We welcome people who are interested in seeing and experiencing a different lifestyle, with more nature, more healthy food, less stress and more simplicity. Travelers who would like to see how we grow our food, how we use the herbs in the surroundings, and how we try to integrate sustainability in both our renovation methods as well as our community. Our place offers a glimpse into a more simple, slow, natural lifestyle with beautiful sunrises and quiet evenings. It is ideal if you want to get away from the rush of city life.

We work hard but also know how to have fun, and we like people with a similar mindset. We don’t want people who just come to work, we prefer to form a bond with our volunteers and have a great time together. We have hosted several hundred volunteers so far and most of our experiences were great.
We are always happy to share our knowledge about living in nature, growing your own food, herbalism, wild foods, woodcutting and woodwork, haywork, gardening, ecological construction, cobwork, cheese masking, soap making, herbal medicine, jarring and preserving food and some other basics of traditional skills and real life skills.
Here you can also enjoy nature in your free time, we live right next to the Apuseni National Park with beautiful hiking opportunities, caves, waterfalls, old forests and lakes.
We are happy to host open minded, self driven, creative people who are eager to share their experiences and their skills with us. If you are undemanding and you love nature, you will have a great time at the Ranch! Get out of your shell and experience life in a new way with us in this beautiful mountain village.
Our projects vary from season to season but they generally include homesteading type of work. At the moment we are looking for helpers for our natural building project, therefore we prefer someone with previous knowledge in some type of woodwork, cobwork, etc. There is also gardening work as well as some help with animals. Help is mostly outdoors, rain or shine, but all faces of nature are beautiful. If you do not have any experience but you are eager to learn, write to us and we will find a project for you.
We do not always count work hours, some days are shorter and some are longer, and it is important for us that people enjoy their stay at our place. You will get at least two days off a week. We live in a communal way, which means we share all household duties as well, which are not included in the volunteering hours (cooking and cleaning are communal hours which are separate from the volunteering hours). Our volunteers naturally also can enjoy enough time around campfires playing music, hiking, beer drinking at the local bar, and any other kind of free activity.
The ranch is our home, where people share everything and respect everyone. Leaving the common areas clean is one of the most essential rules on this farm. We work together, we have meals together, we create together a better way of living. We want to support slow growing, which means that we do not exploit the land and nature. We also support local food bought from small businesses rather than supermarkets as much as possible. The closest market and ATM is 30 km away, so food supplies have to be planned and used with care.
When you stay at the Ranch you will have a place to sleep and delicious food to eat. We have mainly a vegetarian diet, and grow a lot of our own food. Depending on the number of people you can sleep in a guest room, hay loft or in a comfy tent, you might have to share a room with other volunteers. Accommodation is simple and rustic: you can sleep on a bed with a hay mattress, a warm wool blanket and watch the stars at night from your window. With fresh spring water and a privy with a mountain view what else do you need?
We don't offer internet access, but there is limited internet access in the center of the village, and mobile phone access is also limited (only Vodafone signal). Laundry is also very limited. We do not usually host families or volunteers with pets. Please ask us if you have any questions, we are flexible:)
