We are developing a small homestead in the rural province of Somogy in the countryside in South of Hungary and have spent the last 4 years growing a permaculture garden which is now abundant with life and produce, its a lovely place to learn and spend time in to see how nature looks after it own.
Our mission eventually is to live off grid, feed from the garden & surrounding forests and find economic ways to support our small family and home, this takes time and is not always easy with legislations but we are getting there slowly and organically where possible.
We are a small family but have a group of lovely people who visit us each year to help and learn often swapping skills and experience. We are not Hungarian but immerse ourselves into the culture and lifestyle.
We have a bunch of naughty cuddly animals including 6 goats, 25+ chickens, cats and dogs.
CURRENT WORK WE ARE DOING
We are working on various projects at any one time and always some hours in the garden each week.
The process of renovating an old winehouse in which to turn into holiday accommodation is in motion, we will use old building techniques and methods to keep in line with the original traditional style and have started work on the garden Nov 19.
Another is our vintage shop, we have 100s of rustic, primitive and vintage items which we send worldwide so work on this a few days a week often visiting flea markets and vintage sellers in the countryside. If you like photography, restoring, or blogging then this might be of interest to you.
OUR PROPERTY we live on a 2-acre property which we are developing using permaculture, agro forestry and other really awesome methods, the gardens are full of vegetables, and fruit and nut trees.
Our garden backs on to the Zscelic Park (Stary Sky Park) which is the 2nd darkest place in Europe so if you like sitting under the dark skies watching the milky way around the bonfire then our place is for you. You can walk out the garden and step into the forest, its magic.
We have two houses, a family home and a house we currently use for homesteading and volunteers so you can have your own space. We also have a cool camper van and massive tents and hammocks if you would rather be outside. We have lots of space so welcome couples and families.
OUR OFFER TO YOU
Can you give us 4 hours a day (mon-fri)?
We can give you a nice warm place to sleep and a wholesome meal each day. We also provide fresh herbs from the garden for tea and medicinal uses.
You have 24hr access to clean kitchens and bathrooms and extra food stuff for additional meals and a great internet connection.
Weekends are time off for you to go and explore this amazing country. (Look up Kaposvar for events as its our closest city as it hosts more festivals than any other city in Hungary)
There are lots of thermal baths, lakes and other interesting places to go so boredom does not exist around here.
Come join us for a nice volunteering experience.
