We're looking for longer-term-stays beginning December ... So something like one to six months.
It's amazing how far you can travel, without leaving your home. (And hopefully the other way round: How at home can you be, while all the world from home?)
Und Guten Tag!
(in writing i will stick to English, because the other two I can speak some, but barely write ...)
We're looking forward to your requests!
(especially on a possible long-term stay?)
We're living on an organic farm, trying to make it work. As both adults lack a farming background, there's lots of stuff that we could use help with. (Therefore experience with any kind of organic farming, woodworking etc. would be of great help).
Our farm is located in south-east Styria, on a hill. We have Grasland for Sheep mostly, trying to develop a vegetable garden.
We speak English and German fluently,
French more or less fluently,
Spanish: One very well, one to get along...
Help would be appreciated as technical help (repairing and maintenance), helping with the harvesting (hay, apples, similar stuff), planting, but also in the household and everyday tasks like babysitting, cooking ...
Examples for tasks could be:
Fencing for the sheep, feeding the animals, mucking out the stable, planting vegetables, fertilizing / watering, haywork, woodcutting / chopping, harvesting vegetables, preserving harvest, maintenance work around the house or barn ...
(Animal list as of August 2017: Sheep, Chickens (incl. Chicks), Ducklings, Cats (incl. a kitten). And sometimes, there's some cute little bats in the barn ;-)
Also, there is a small child in the house, so please excuse us if things sometimes get a little more chaotic. (There's cuteness overload to compensate)
