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 animals and nature and the freedom of the great outdoors to our wonderful mountainside farm. We appreciate your help and as much as we are willing to teach you all aspects of farming life, working the land and working with the tractor and other machinery we also like to learn from you if you have skills in farming. We also feel it is very important to educate young people of the importance of eco-living and eco-farming. 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.
We all work together, but when you finish working it doesnt mean that we also (family) stop :) 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, 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 eating. There is always the right moment. It s the nature of our work, our lifestyle.
A room with 4 beds. Bathroom is used with the family members. If you want and the weather is fine, you can also sleep on a hay/barn...many options. There is a place for a van in front of the house.
Breakfast & Lunch & dinner & snacks:
there are all ingrediens/ food/ veggies/ meat/ ...
Breakfast you eat individually, whenever and whatever you want. Lunch and dinner is cooked together - or one person takes this task to cook lunch/ dinner for you (all volunteers) and for 2 -3 family members. Always a nice experience.
Please always clean bathroom/kitchen/your room after using it, so everybody can have a fresh and clean place. Important: When taking a shower please take a short shower and dont let the water run, if you dont use it at the moment. We respect water (our village has its own water source/spring) and nature very much and this has to be cherished and consumed wisely. Thank you.
What else ...
When you have time off there is a lot to do. Ride a bike in Brkini, hike in hills (Vremščica, Nanos, Slavnik), discover the villages and places around (Artviže, Tatre, Škoflje,), visit the Škocjanske or Postojna caves and take the train to the coast Koper, Izola, Piran, Soline or to see the capital city Ljubljana. There are the most beautiful lakes Bled and Bohinj. River Soča, places Tolmin, Bovec and its area. Slovenia is one amazing country where you can find everything.
Our village Gradišica has beautiful view, amazing sun set, forest and a lot of places to hike, ride a bike and enjoy time after you finish your day with helping us on the farm.
