The farm was established in autumn 2014. Cultivated area is 6 ha and 0,8 ha greenhouse area under organic conditions (demeter association). In spring 2015 we started our CSA (community supported agriculture) and delivered our first vegetables in june the same year.

We grow more than 100 different vegetables and herbs to give our costumers a wide range of products year round. At the moment we try to establish a Seed Cooperation with some other nearby farmers. Since summer 2016 we have two alpaca and six sheep on the farm. We planted already a couple of trees for the permaculture garden.

For 2017 our new projects are:
- finishing our first permaculture garden
- start chicken and duck keeping
- make a pond for aquaculture
- extending the production of herbs, for tea, spice mixtures
- start to create the space for our Bauernhof-Kindergarten (Free Farm Kindergarden)

Everybody who enjoys working on a small scale farm in a nice and familiar atmosphere is welcome on our farm!
We are at the moment a team of three young people working and exploring the world of organic farming and solidarity agriculture! Join us if you like!

We speak German, English, Portuguese, basic Persian and basic Spanish.

Markets are in nearby towns (10 minutes car drive). We started as well to cooperate with FoodSharing, therefore we get some food stuff like bread for free.

We can provide vegetarian meals.

If you like we have Yoga lessons each tuesday (5 EUR per hour for volunteers).

Nice to see round here is a old monastery (Maulbronn). Stuttgart and Heidelberg are nearby (half hour with train, one hour by car).

In summer you can go swimming in lakes or swimming pools (20 min car drive).

We can provide place to stay for 3, maximum 5 Helpxers in separated rooms. Usually the places are full, so you can expect to meet a couple of other volunteers. We have a separated flat for volunteers.

All meals are provided. We work as well on a worldwide volunteer cookbook. Therefore we really like if you cook a traditional meal from your country :-)
