About the workproject

We need 2 volunteers

Are you ready to try live the farm life wink ? Than join us smile

Our farm is an organic farm on which four generations of our family live and work. . We produce organic vegetables and raise our animals organically. From May until December we require a lot of help this is when we prepare the land for planting and harvesting the vegetables we produce. We would like to invite people who love nature and the freedom of the great outdoors to our wonderful mountainside farm. We appreciate your help. In-short: We would be glad to host you. Please don’t worry if some of our family members do not speak perfect English we can communicate in German and Italian too. However, the most important thing of all is - we are here to learn from each other and have fun in the process.

When we live together is also important to respect some ground rools of living and working together:
We live as a family together with our dear volunteers, and that why we wish that also everybody is helping in every aspect. Because farming is not only work in the field, its much more than that.

HELP on the farm:
- we respect every single minute you spend helping us on the farm. And we are really thankful when you do your work really good and with passion. We understand that you can not know everything, thats why we are here to teach, to show and to help you to learn new skills which are needed for a life on a farm wink

FAMILY:
We all work together, but when you finish working it doesnt mean that we also (family) stop smile Please dont be dissapointed if the family members arent always around inside the house. Bogdan & co are always working, Metka is taking care of kids and houshold and her job, so sometimes its impossible to see us in the house. So please spend time with us/ talk to us/ask questions - just do it, when we are working, cleaning or bakin pizza lte in the night. There is always the right moment. It s the nature of our work, our lifestyle.

WATER:
- the village has its own water spring. We respect water and the nature. Thats why we take short showers and use water only when needed. Please close the tap/pipe/shower when not needed. So we all have enough water also to drink, to water plants, for cooking, for animals ... please respect water and nature. Thank you.

LANGUAGE:
- Not all of the family members are fluent in english, so please take your time and try to find out what the other person is saying. We all have to be creative to find a way how to understand each other.

WEEKENDS:
Weekend are off to travel around Slovenia.
But if you decide to stay on farm on weekend please help us couple of hours for exchange for food.

PLEASE:
- Enjoy your staying with us every single minute and do help us with work on the farm
- discover the farm, visit the animals, visit the field, forest. We have 100 cows, 20 sheeps and goats 10 rabbits, 50 chickens, 10 turkeys, 2 dogs and hm ... maybe some mouse from the field, and fox in the forest, deer, wink
- don't miss any beautiful sunset here
- visit the caves, coast, mountains, cities
- spend time with our family when we stop with work and have fun learning slovene and you teach us your language

Wish you a great day and a lot of amazing travel experiences

Metka, Bogdan, Jonas, Patrik, Zarja, Marijan, Vida, Jana, Perrine and Joži wink wink
