At the moment we are looking for people to stay with us, so we would be really pleased to accept you. But before you make a final decision, there are a few points we would like to check with you:

Firstly, when we have more than one wwoofer wishing to come here, we ask for a further message from each of them, so please, after reading the following, send us a message.

Next, we should point out that we are not farmer.
If you are looking particularly for farming experience then another host might be more suitable for you.

The main jobs we ask you to do here include sweeping floors, washing clothes, playing with our 3 children and other general housework and also tidying up and other jobs outside around the house. Most of the work will be gentle and subdued rather than heavy physical work.

Other jobs you may get to do include: preparation for events, farm work, chopping logs and house maintenance/renovation. We always try to share work fairly and to work together.

On an average day we work from 6:30 in the morning up until the lunch is finished and cleared away. And it is a help to get diner ready.

Our particular strength lies not just in the daily life, but in the people you will meet here and the inspiration and energy that you can receive from and give to them. If you are a person who feels that it is important to communicate and connect with others, then you are very welcome. Your stay here is sure to be a meaningful and valuable experience.
