We are building experimental self sufficient farms in the Carpathian Mountains for people and large animals.

Our network are local farmers of Zakarpathia and newcomers living in Carpathian Mountains. Our main aim is the maintenance of the unique biodiversity of the Carpathian Mountains. We believe in small farmers. Therefore we are engaging in the preservation of rare domestic breeds, as the Carpathian buffalo, the Carpathian Mountain cow Rishca, the Carpathian wool pig and the Hutsul horse. We are keeping those breeds on our farm and supporting our network with experience exchange and living animals. In winter time we are also producing cheese from the buffalos- and cowsmilk, to help finance our project, in summer we have organisational-, pastural and touristic work in the Carpathian nature.

On our farm called Saldobosch you will have the possibility to get to know our wonderful buffaloes and horses, explore the Carpathian nature and get into contact with the local population.

We ask volunteers to stay at least two weeks, so they can gain a complete understanding of the farm and our work and contribute to it. You are definitely welcome to stay longer!
The accommodation will be very primitive. Specially in summer some words russian or ukraine will be helpfull.

In winter we have a lot of work in the stable: cleaning, feeding, milking, taking care of the horses and smaller animals. But also making cheese, chopping wood, washing milk and cheese making devices, keeping order in the household and cooking.

In your free time you can explore our surroundings, since we are situated in an area full of natural beauty! We can help you to organize trips to the surrounding mountains and virgin forests, as well as rural communities to view traditional small farming. We are also only a ten minute walk away from the beautiful river Tisa, forests, and foothills that you can enjoy every day!

You will not just work on a farm here, you will also help to preserve the unique biodiversity of this wonderful region. Please be sure to visit our website link above for more information about our project!
