WE NEED SOME STRONG HANDS TO PREPARE FOR FOR THE SPRING/SUMMER SEASON!!!!
Agrochatka is currently looking for a some helpers to get some tasks done for the Spring/Summer season. If you have knowledge of landscaping, fence building, masonry,making concrete forms, eco sewage and water systems, building a wooden shelter, it would be fantastic. We also need helpers for general repairs, weeding, planting, cleaning and painting, working in the barn, and we always appreciate good cooks;). Please contact us as soon as possible.
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.
The area is great for walking and bike riding, and there are many beautiful wooden churches to see. Also in the area is a world-famous apiary, where honeybees are bred and delicious honey can be tasted. Beautiful, clear nights, where you can see many stars. A great atmosphere with great people.
We offer a comfortable accommodation and delicious food. We speak Polish, English, Russian, and a bit of German. We are located 9 km from Kluczbork, 50 km from Opole and 120 km from Wroclaw. There are trains and buses to Kluczbork, and buses from Kluczbork that run through Biadacz on weekdays. There are 2 shops within walking distance of the farm. Spring is almost here, with lots of work to do.There will be workshops with children, and it would be great if you can tell them about your country and culture. Help in the barn, fields, and the main house is needed (some painting, repairing, cleaning etc.). We also have intensive English courses here from time to time, so if you are a native speaker, please drop us a line.
