The farm with four buildings and ha of land was built 1802. I have bought it in 09/2009. Ever since then, work has never stopped and I try to rebuild it the old-fashioned way (lots of clay) and keep all I can. I also woke up the old farmer's garden again, where I grow veggies, herbs and old style plants. There is always plenty of jobs and projects to do. There are a lot of jobs in winter as well. We also like to sit near the fire and make music in the evenings in the summertime.
I am currently also looking for people to join us and build a community here, because the farm needs people! At the moment, I share the house with a friend and usually have one other helpers here, too.
I work part time (6 hrs a day) as a materials engineer to get the money in to rebuild the farm.
I do not have a philosophy about life except live and let live and make the best out of what I have.
What we provide
How we work
You have your own room and share the kitchen, living room and bathroom with us. We like to make meals together, where everyone contributes. We also expect help with regular household chores.
Cannot cook for vegans. My vegetarian cooking skills are ok as long as you are not picky. We usually eat lots of salad and veg from our garden so you will not starve. We expect you to work by yourselves as independently as possible. We obviously show you things but do not want to have to supervise you all the time.
