About

We have been running this farm since 1997, with about 500 helpers for the eleven last years, and we have had some beautiful years when we look back.

70ha farm includes 50 ha forest and 15 ha rented cultivated land. The farm is located by a beautiful lake and nature reserve. Farm is old and we try to make it attractive and clean.

Farms main income comes from selling organic vegetables and maintaining 18 bee hives . We also have some hens. We work with food processing , paint houses, cut firewood, and extract bee honey and maintain 18 bee hives . We sell products in a small farm shop in the summer time.

We are looking for persons who like organic gardenning , beekeeping and other related activities. Students are also invited. We recieved the biggest bee houney harvest from 19 year old 2 females who had no prior experince for bee keeping. So bee keeping is safe and fun.

We provide seminars according to your requests on Ecological farming, self psychology on life quality, meditation, various ideas on healthy simple lifestyle and yoga. Since we both work outside, it is necessary the helpers work with us when possible and get to know the tasks and thereafter work independently.

Life here is quite simple. Helpers have a kitchen, bathroom, rooms , internet seperately form the farm family. We have 3 rooms to host and we would like to host 2 to 3 helpers at a time with a duration 3-4 weeks. Some helpers stayed more than one year also. The farm is normally closed in the winter approximately from November 30th to April 1st. Very specific occations we accomadate people for special projects during the winter.

Our vision is to develop the farm as a pleasant place to take care of people and nature. We wish the wwofers would learn gardenning and beekeeping and use those skills back home in their future lives for a sustainable simple lifestyle. We would be happy to invite you to join us.
