We're a young belgian couple, Wouter (35) and Leen (30) with a 8months old boy, Emil . Since 6 years we are living our dream. Having a smallscale selfsustainable farm. We love growing our own food and build our own buildings, work hard and being our own boss.
We do believe this world could be a better place. But we choose not to scream out that it all has to change, but rather do it... If you believe something has to be different, do it differently ;)

For a living we have 5 beautiful jersey cows from whoms milk we make delicious matured cheese. This cheese we're selling at the local farmersmarket.

At this moment our biggest project is the strawbale house we are building, which will be our new home for our little family.
We build exclusively with naturally materials, in none of our buildings we've used any concrete. We very much like building with wood, straw and cob.
We also prefer to do all the building ourselves, which cost a lot of energy, but learned us a lot through the years. We believe we are an interesting place for people who would like to start a small scale self-sufficient farm in the future. Besides the wide range of skills we gained through the years, you could learn a lot from our mistakes as well :)

At the strawbale house the things which still need to be done (soon) include plastering the walls with cob, reed thatching, installing the earthen floor, and later on making kitchen furniture and so on.. (also electricity, plumbing and chimney building still needs to be done)
