This is an opportunity to sample life in a rural setting, situated in northern Croatia, near the border with Hungary. I moved to this region from Scotland in November 2011 as a way of taking early retirement but would like to do some hobby farming on a non commercial basis.
The plan is to eventually grow barley, hops etc and set up a microbrewery. This will be a new use for the land, which will need to be prepared. Initial work is likely to include the use of chainsaws, strimmers, rotovators, axes etc. The farm buildings are also in a neglected state so help might be required with repair work.
Helpers have their own bedroom containing 2 single beds. Living room, kitchen and bathroom are shared with host. Inside the house is non smoking but smoking is OK outside. Meals may contain meat.
