The farm is around 25 hectares including fields, woodlands and orchards. The area is in the Highlands, 45 mins from Brno, 1 hr 45 from Prague.
I'm taking the land back from the local farming co-operative and turning it organic. So far I have three hectares for sheep and hay, the orchards and the forest. We have four friendly chickens and one cockerel 3 horses, Csinos (mare) and Nico (gelding) Luke (gelding) all from Hungary, and each spring we have about 15 lambs.



The work includes keeping the land in order, gardening, forestry, fruit picking, feeding the sheep and horses, house renovation, a wide range. Priority will be given to those with experience and that can stay longer than ten days. The farm has a lot of working parts that need explanation. Ideally I would have one person to stay for an extended time with visiting helpers. Trustworthy, responsible and a work ethic are qualities I'm looking for. You are welcome to travel on the weekend but if staying we work a half day on Saturday.
Apart from the farm work there are also the household chores that we will share together such as cleaning and looking after my very friendly dogs with Arti (French Bulldog) and Sandy (Boxer).
The farm is a friendly, comfortable, happy place and one of my parents or a friend will often come to stay. I have a four bedroom house and you will normally get your own room.
Some cooking ability is preferable so that we can take it in turn to cook.
I have wi fi, a large choice of films, many with subtitles.
There is a clay tennis court available in the village and it's fun to play after work.
Alcohol is not included but we often drive into town for the supermarket.
