  • Description


    We live in the German part of Switzerland in an old farmhouse built in 1732. We would love to host and meet new people and share experiences at our farm. We are Anna and Markus and we’ve been married nearly three decades. Our son is studying and is working with us part time. Our daughter is working as a nurse in a hospital in Zurich. She visits us every other few weeks so hopefully you will meet her too. Markus is a farmer and I, Anna a trained gardener. We also have two sweet and lovely cats as part of our household.

    We receive a lot of requests so please only write if you have a review on workaway (or similiar platforms) and please describe in a few sentences how your skills match to our work profile - see "Type of help".

    You will learn about typical Swiss farm life and sustainable living. Anna is a passionate gardener and will share with you her knowledge of herbs, veggies, trees and flowers. Markus has been a farmer all his life and he can teach you all you need to know about working with cows and preparing the land such as building fences and preparing firewood.

  • Aide


    We always need help on the farm. Between April and October, we are busy with seeding, garden work, weeding, picking and storing fruits. Our cows love to eat apples so we feed them a share of the harvest. Furthermore you will help us sort and cut fruits and vegetables, baking (we like to make our own bread), preparing meals and help with other tasks in the household such as cleaning, washing and making the dishes. Note that the work tasks vary depending on the season. We are looking for people with good physical condition because work can be demanding but we are offering a variety of tasks every day. You do not work on weekends so it’s yours to do as you please and of course you have spare time in the afternoon.

    We are passionate about fresh food and healthy eating so we mostly eat vegetables, fruits, eggs and beef from our gras feed cows. We like to know where our food comes from and that it is produced in a sustainable way. We provide three meals a day and can offer vegetarian but no vegan food.

    In your spare time you may sunbathe in the garden, go for walks and hikes in the surrounding hills and forests and the nearby Alps. You can go for a swim or bike around Lake Zurich or on one of the numerous single trails around our place. Public transportation will get you to lovely Rapperswil (30'), Zurich (45') or Lucerne (1h40') in short time. So there is plenty to discover!
