    Description

    Hi, I'm Ben now living on an organic farm together with my wife Birgit and our children Oliver (born 2005) and Finn (2007). I was born and raised in Cornwall/England, then moved to Austria with Birgit in 2006.

    For the past 12 years we've created a unique environment combining farming and gardening alongside nature. At this time we own 8 ha and rent a further 8. Most of the land is set to grass with 2 ha arable and 1 ha woodland. We have a herd of beef cattle (Aberdeen Angus), goats, sheep, hens, donkeys, cats and our much loved dog Jeffrey.

    In addition to the farm we have created a show garden which is open to the public throughout the summer. Our aim is creating the right balance between protecting our environment and at the same time satisfying our needs for living.

    We have now reached a stage whereby to continue and expand projects we need help.

    If you come and work on our farm, I can promise you that there are many varied and interesting jobs to undertake.

    Day to day jobs include animal husbandry, maintaining our victorian style kitchen garden with its wide variety of fruit and vegetables, and general garden maintenance.

    Nearby Linz is remarkable for possessing a sizable "Altstadt" (old town), for featuring a rich cultural life with numerous museums and festivals, for being situated in an attractive landscape characterised by the Danube and delightful hills, while it is at the same time an economically vibrant and busy industrial city with huge steel and chemical works.
    While this industry in Linz is still financially dominant, it is slowly diversifying by helping small companies and encouraging tourism. The city gets a lot of international media attention because of its annual Ars Electronica Festival; an international festival for Electronic Art. It also hosts the "Klangwolke" ("sound-cloud"); a big cultural Open-Air spectacle with modern and traditional music and a massive light show, which is held in September. Linz has become the "European Capital of Culture" in 2009, by virtue of an independent cultural development and an innovative culture and art scene.
