We can host you in June, July and August.

We live on a little farm in Menzberg, a small village in the backcountry of Luzern. Our farm is at 1000 metres, near the Napf, the local mountain. There is beautiful scenery and a lot of hiking possibilities up here.
We are a milk farm, have some pigs and there are also chickens and cats around.

We are looking for helpers all year, in summer the main work is haymaking, in winter working in the forest. But there is also a lot of other things to do like maintaining buildings, gardening, housekeeping, feeding the animals, cooking... It all depends on the time of the year, your skills... But all you don't know yet you can learn here. We do a lot of handwork because our property is quite steep. So you can learn how traditional farming works in switzerland.

We are 5 people, the parents and 3 youths between 24 to 33 years. But nowadays the young people come and go and there are often just a few of us home.
We speak german, english, french, and also norwegian but only a part of the family.

You will have your own room, and be part of our family- work, eat, have fun and, if you like, spend your spare time with us. We expect about half day working, in summer maybe all day. This depends mainly on the weather and what work is to do.
