About the workproject

We need 3 volunteers

Cozy homestead in Denmark.
We are a farm where you can learn about selfsufficient life. You are a person who want to be selfsufficient or learn about selfsufficiency. We will give you courses beside housing and food.

We are a family of 4, grow everything biointensive and with no-dig method and we will give a free course in biointensive growing for all our helpers. It is a fantastic system that give us a high yield with less work.

We try to be as independent as possible, which means growing and making our own food. We make all our cheeses, butter, sourmilk products, we slaughter own livestock and are 100% self suppliant in meat and nearly self sufficient in vegetables. At the moment we buy grains but we grind it ourselves for our bread making, pasta, beer etc.

On the farm we have one milking cow who is named Anna, 36 hens, 3 roosters and for the moment 6 pigs and 5 piglets (Hungarian Mangalitza), a Shetland pony, a dog and a cat.

We provide free wifi and a bicycle you are welcome to use in your sparetime.

We don't necessarily expect a 100% engagement in self sufficient lifestyle but a willingness to do the jobs and tasks on the farm with a positive attitude. A happy environment in both work and off time is crucial to us and our family

We are a family of 4, my husband and I and our 2 kids. We are selfsufficient as much as possible and we have a company who educate people to make their own things such as sausages, salume, how to slaughter and cut out own pig, making cheese, making bread and building raised beds for biointensive growing.
