Small scale organic farming, we try to be self-sustaining - poor but happy!
Jon (m, 53) and Nico (f, 50), we arrived here in 2007 and constructed our first stawbalehouse (20m), then added an extension (with a simple room for visitors and a bathroom). We have sheep, chicken, two small ponds, a forest and a lot of different work to do, almost without machines. We live from what we produce ourselves and earn money with feltmaking and small jobs and exchange products and help with people around us.
We like to recieve people to share our experience of living and because working together is much more fun!

This year(2017)the main activity will be continue the construction of our future house: put clay on walls out of strawbales, electricity,grey water system, and a lot of other work...

We can't offer a lot of comfort (no heating in your room)but we'd be happy to share with you gardening, constructing, woodwork, handcraft .....a good time in general. If you have special skills like energy production solar or hydraulic- we would be happy to learn from you!

Although we are just 3km from the little town with cinema, shops and any other infrastructure it feels really "in the middle of nowhere" on the terrain. You can easily walk or take a bike if you want to join the "civilisation".

...languages spoken: german, dutch, english a little spanish but we prefer FRENCH
