* Languages spoken in the farm: French (native), English, some Romanian

* Description of the area:

Isolated farm in Transylvania, in a valley surrounded by woods (the wood is nearby – 50 meters – with a nice waterfall at wet season), streams and pasture. The closest village is Malin (400 inhabitants, 1,5 km from the farm). The first city is Beclean (10km).

* What do we grow on the farm?

We practice permaculture, and we grow our own food, for us and visitors. We are trying to reach food autonomy, so we need to harvest enough to fill the cellar for winter (potatoes, roots, jars…). We have a lot of walnuts and make oil with it. We have some chickens for eggs. We make hay for our tree donkeys and for mulching. We pick wilds flowers and make cream, oil, herbal tea...
We also do eco-construction to renovate the buildings : we are working as much as possible with natural materials (such as clay, straw, timber from the forest nearby…).

Welcome to our Project and ‘Thanks’ for stopping by.

WE ARE - an exciting and fun developing homestead in the rural province of Somogy in the countryside in South of Hungary.

Our mission is to live off grid, feed from the garden & surrounding forests and find economic ways to support our small family and home.
We are in the process of renovating an old farmhouse in which to turn into holiday accommodation and will use old building techniques and methods to keep in line with the original traditional style.

There are three of us which includes 2 extremely fun and friendly under 10’s.

And a bunch of naughty cuddly animals including 13 goats, 25+ chickens, cats and dogs.

PROPERTY – we live on a 2-acre property which we are developing using permaculture, agro forestry and other really awesome methods, the gardens are full of vegetables, and fruit and nut trees so we don’t go hungry around here.
Our garden backs on to the Zscelic Park (Stary Sky Park) which is the 2nd da... more inside

We are so grateful to all of the people who have visited us at the farm. Everyone has shared their culture, traditional dishes, wonderful conversation, travel stories, and great ideas, and we are thankful to you all! It has been a fantastic learning experience for all of us.

We have 2 hectares of grain, potatoes, and pumpkins. There is also a garden of mixed vegetables and herbs. We have fruit trees (cherries, apricots and peaches), and a meadow from which we collect hay. The barn houses goats, rabbits, and chickens. Help is needed in all of the areas as well as the main house. Knowledge of landscaping would be appreciated, as well as general repairs and painting.

The area is great for walking and bike riding, and there are many beautiful wooden churches to see.

The farm is around 25 hectares including fields, woodlands and orchards. The area is in the Highlands, 45 mins from Brno, 1 hr 45 from Prague.
I'm taking the land back from the local farming co-operative and turning it organic. So far I have three hectares for sheep and hay, the orchards and the forest. We have four friendly chickens and one cockerel 3 horses, Csinos (mare) and Nico (gelding) Luke (gelding) all from Hungary, and each spring we have about 15 lambs.



The work includes keeping the land in order, gardening, forestry, fruit picking, feeding the sheep and horses, house renovation, a wide range. Priority will be given to those with experience and that can stay longer than ten days. The farm has a lot of working parts that need explanation.

We are a family of four located in the south foothills of Pirin mountain. A few years ago we started a project of returning to the countryside from the big city with the dream of establishing a community of families and individuals with common values in respect to the nature, the way of raising and educating our children and in sharing our strengths, knowledge, competence, and passions. We are only at the beginning - there is still a lot of work ahead of us and a lot to learn. We use sustainable methods of gardening, we homeschool our kids and we experiment everyday in adapting to this new lifestyle. We need help in establishing new gardens and maintaining the existing ones, renovation and construction around the house, creating a campsite and a common space, creating a website, various smaller for the time being odd projects as soap making, canning or preserving, and of course there is always the household everyday stuff - cooking, cleaning, you name it.
