-- available again from 19th Nov --
We have a small organic farm in Switzerland. With us live 8 horses, 2 sheep, 2 cats. Growing our own food, we're constantly seeking new ways to make best use of our land and resources.

Help needed includes: horse care, gardening, building, cooking, housekeeping, child care (age 2 and 5).

Situated on the foot of the jura mountains, we're next to a breathtaking gorge and 40 min walk to the lake of Biel.

If you are looking for a peaceful place to work about 4 hours a day, we will be happy to provide you with a cool place to stay (own room + bathroom) and home cooked organic vegetarian food.

My name is Werner i'm 46 years old and i work as a sculptor. I live on a small farm, in a old typical swiss farmhouse. This house is in the region Emmental,Switzerland. Its a very quiet place, surrounded by nature and some other farmhouses. But its not far from a small town and only about 40km away from Bern. I have about 40 sheeps and a dog called Zora. I live here with my partner and my youngest son Marino (4 month old) - my other two children Jana 16 and Kamil 20 sometimes live also here. A female intern is same living here with us.
You would help on the farm, in the garden and in the workshop. 4-5 hours a day, for food and accommodation. You also have the chance to be creative and do some art.
I'm looking forward to get to know many interesting people.

We're a family with two children (5 years and 18 months old), running a permaculture project at 1300 mt. on the Swiss alps, in a small historical village served by public transports. We have a veggie and medicinal garden and few ducks. Barbara teaches permaculture and Joe is an experienced guide in wild and medicinal herbs.
Help needed in the veggie garden (mulching, fencing, etc.), in the house (housekeeping and cooking, babysitting) as well as for harvesting and transforming wild plants. Families are welcome.
We look for motivated volunteers that wants to experience our way of living; therefore if you need a place in Switzerland as a basis to look for jobs, this is not the place for you.
Being at our place you'll become part of a tribe. Help in daily tasks is required and we'll be happy to share with you trekkings to enjoy the beauty of our area and to harvest wild medicinal herbs. We'll be pleased to share with you our knowledge about growing plants as food and medecine, makin... more inside

New openings for helpers starting April 2018! We are a small organic Agri business. We produce speciality heirloom tomato and other vegetable seeds and seedlings which are sold at farmers markets. We are also an organic Garden cooperative in which our goal is to create a socially responsible and community based project that feeds its members and connects them to where the food comes from. We also run a small B&B. So volunteer work can be doing anything from gardening chores to working in the greenhouse to helping at farmers markets to cleaning and making beds.
We only take helpers from April through October.

Hello helpers

We are situated in the green back hills of the Wyna valley in southern Aargau. An ideal landscape for walking and mountainbiking.

We are not a professional farm but partially self-sufficient smallholders with one hectare of garden, orchard, pasture and forest. As new owners, we are in the process of establishing a large veggie garden including a permaculture section and restarting a chicken run. Our farm is situated outside the village, surrounded by our land. Nevertheless the next train station is only a 10 minutes walk away.

We offer to honest and motivated people the opportunity to stay with us for a while. We are a family with one teenager and 2 adult children which season-wise also live with us. We speak German, Italian, English and a little bit French. We don’t mind for smokers but only outside the house. We love good food and a glas of good wine but we can tolerate only moderate alcohol consumption. You’ll be invited to join us for breakfast, lunch and dinner. We... more inside
