Looking forward for some helpers from March to July 2016 :) Happy travels!

My parents have an organic farm in north Kurzeme, 8 km from Baltic sea, right next to Slitere national park. It is a nice and calm place with flowerful meadows surrounded by wonderful forests which are full of berries and mushrooms. We have beef cattle, a cow for milking, bees, a dog and cats.

I have been travelling and volunteering but now I have several projects going on my parents farm. That include landscaping, building, painting, gardening to improve garden and landscape around the house. However, there is always something to do on the farm if you want to work with animals, tractors or in vegetable garden. There is also some household chores just to keep things running.

We are happy with traditional deal of 4 hour work per day in exchange for food and accommodation or work a full day and have next day free to explore nature, beach or closer towns. We live 7 km away from the closest bus stop, we can pick you up if needed. Accommodation is in our old house, unfortunately we don't have a separate room for you but we have a huge room, where everyone can find a bed and place for themselves. It is also possible to stay in our tent or in "haytel" (hay hotel - place to sleep made of hay) if you want more solitude. Instead of hot shower there is a good sauna. And instead of lot of shopping we have our own dairy products, vegetables, jams and fruits.

We would be glad to meet you and share experiences.
