Live and work at a true Austrian alpine farm. Very remote!

This is for volunteers who look for a really remote place and simple life. You will be working with cows, check and repair fences at a rough, remote alpine place with stunning views and lots of wildlife.

You should be in a good physical condition, ready to walk on step mountains and not afraid of cows.

The place ist stunningly beautiful in days of good wheather. However, you will be experiencing heavy thunderstorms, stormy days and even snow in summer.

The next village is minimum one hour walk away. The place is at 1700m, the area where the animals graze is huge and step. The pastures reach up to 2000m.

You will be able to observe wildlife a lot - dear, eagle, fox and many others. It is not a commercial place tourists visit.

It is a place for true lovers of nature and lonely places and farming life with big animals.

We are a couple in our 50s who recently took the place and look for ways to run it in a sustainable way.

Volunteers are expected to work 25h a week with at least one free day a week.

You will have your own room (very simple). Electricity works now most times (own water power). Internet access reaches 4G most of the times, if there is electricity.
