We live in a big institution which take care of people with mental disease with our family : two children of 4 and 6 years old. The place is beautiful with view on the mountains, near Lausanne.

I am in charge of the farm : it is 34 ha bio dynamic with milk cows (milk transformation), sheep, goats, honey, fruits, vegetable, cereals.

We offer a room and food.
We need somebody with our children for the afternoon mostly, the rest of the time is free or if you like, you can help us in our small garden.

It is a state institution so it can be complicated to work on the farm but after we learn to know each other, it is possible to work a few hours a week with a volunteer contract (papers in order : insurance, identity, visa …).


first contact per mail

NB : we moved in 2017 in Switzerland; our reviews don't correspond with the actual place.

after September 14th, 2018

Hallo Helpers,

I am looking for someone who is proficient in Wordpress to help me on my website.
not someone who is a fast lerner, but someone who already knows...

I see helpx as a cultural exchange. This means communication between people. If your smartphone is your world and you prefer to "talk" to the smartphone rather than to people, you should not travel. All that you can get at home already.

You are expected to know basic life skills like the use of a vacuum cleaner etc. you should also be able to do whatever task in the way you have been shown. Creativity is fine, but not always...

when you apply via helpx:
If you wish to stay with me I expect you to tell me about yourself, your studies/profession and why you would like to be a helper at my house. I am not only interested in what you expect to learn, but also in what you can offer. Life is a constant give and take as well as learning from each other. Reviews on helpx are essential.... more inside

Hello helpers

We are a family of three, Isabel, Uli, and our son Isidro, age 7. We live in the district of Appenzell, Switzerland with a beautiful view of the Rhein Valley and the Austrian and Swiss mountains. We speak fluent German, Italian and French and some English, Czech and a bit of Spanish.

Help is needed in ecological house building, gardening and general housework. We are looking for motivated helpers from April to October for about two-week stays. We expect half day of work, 4 hours a day, weekend off. Schedule may vary depending to the work needs and weather conditions.

Our old farmhouse burned down in 2007; however, we started in 2013 with the construction of a new house, with a focus of using natural local materials such as wood, wool and clay. Since August 2016 we have been living in the house, however, it is still a work in progress. Our friends laugh and joke that it is “the best furnished construction site they have ever seen”.

We also started cultiv... more inside

My name is Werner i'm 47 years old and I work as a sculptor. I live on a small farm, in a old typical swiss farmhouse. This house is in the region Emmental,Switzerland. Its a very quiet place, surrounded by nature and some other farmhouses. But its not far from a small town and only about 40km away from Bern. I have about 50 sheeps and a dog called Zora. I live here with my partner and my youngest son Marino (4 month old) - my other two children Jana 16 and Kamil 20 sometimes live also here. A female intern is same living here with us.
You would help on the farm, in the garden and in the workshop. 4-5 hours a day, for food and accommodation. You also have the chance to be creative and do some art.
I'm looking forward to get to know many interesting people.
