Hi All and welcome to our brand new HelpX page. We are a tiny organic farm in rural Bulgaria. We grow lots of vegetables and keep a range of small farm animals including Goats and Pigs. We have lots of visitors at the weekends so that parents can show children where their food comes from, something that has quickly become lost in our fast paced society. We believe in the highest standards of animal welfare and all of them are free range.

We believe in keeping our carbon footprint as small as possible so we don't use much in the way of machinery.

We would love your help in keeping all of the vegetables looking nice because being organic sometimes means lots of weeds. We will teach you lots of new skills including how to milk goats and how to look after the animals. We are well known for our cooking here in Bulgaria and that extends to the food we provide for our volunteers.

We use the produce from the farm all the time and always sit down together at the end of the day to share what we have grown, produced and cooked. We are only 45km from Sofia (the capital) and there are some interesting tourist sites close by including a Roman fort and hot mineral springs. I suppose it's quite important to mention that we have cell phone coverage and superfast broadband which you are free to use.
