*In March we would like to host people, who are ready to help us with sanding/painting the door/bench/old windows frames, collect eggs, help with collecting stones on the field. Those who are eager to learn they can help in stanle with cows and sheeps...

But you will also have enough time to get to know a small village & its area and enjoy fresh air and nice people here. Join us ;)

*April - end of December*: Help out on the field with vegetables, harvesting, weeding, trimming/clening/washing vegetables and get it ready for market, help in and outside the house, cleaning, feeding animals, ... Interested? :)

Let us know

Who are we? ;)

Our farm is an organic farm on which four generations of our family live and work. We produce organic vegetables and raise our animals organically. From May until December we require a lot of help this is when we prepare the land for planting and harvesting the vegetables we produce. We would like to invite people who love animals and nature and the freedom of the great outdoors to our wonderful mountainside farm. We appreciate your help and as much as we are willing to teach you all aspects of farming life, working the land and working with the tractor and other machinery we also like to learn from you if you have skills in farming. We also feel it is very important to educate young people of the importance of eco-living and eco-farming. In-short: We would be glad to host you. Please donít worry if some of our family members do not speak perfect English we can communicate in German and Italian too. However, the most important thing of all is - we are here to learn from each other and have fun in the process.

When we live together is also important to respect some ground rools of living and working together:
We live as a family together with our dear volunteers, and that why we wish that also everybody is helping in every aspect. Because farming is not only work in the field, its much more than that.

HELP on the farm:
- we respect every single minute you spend helping us on the farm. And we are really thankful when you do your work really good and with pasion. We understand that you can not know everything, thats why we are here to teach, to show and to help you to learn new skills which are needed for a life on a farm ;)
Help is 5hrs a day, 5 days a week.weekends are off.

Accomondation:
A room with 4 beds. Sheets & blankets & pillows are provided. (!!No sleeping-bags allowed!!)

Bathroom is used with other volunteers.

If you want and the weather is fine, you can also sleep on a hay/barn...many options. ;)

There is a place for a van a couple of meters away from the house. Please always clean bathroom/kitchen/your room after using it, so everybody can have a fresh and clean place. Important: When taking a shower please take a short shower and dont let the water run, if you dont use it at the moment.

We respect water (our village has its own water source/spring) and nature very much and this has to be cherished and consumed wisely. Thank you.

Breakfast & Lunch & dinner & snacks inbetween: there are all ingridiens which you need to cook an awsome lunch for you (all volunteers) and for 2 -3 family members. Always a nice experience.

Most important: dont miss a single sunset and enjoy every minute here. Get to know people, place and nature.
