Short about us:

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. Through all year we are happy to host you and to accept your help on the farm: 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. However, the most important thing of all is - we are here to learn from each other and have fun in the process.

When we share our home with you is also important to respect some ground rools of living and working together:
Please take care of a new home as your own 🥰, 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.

Enjoy your staying with us every single minute and do help us with work on the farm.

Be aware that you are joining us and please try to live with us our life style which we have. Try to be a part of international family and family of volunteers.

Our family is not traditional, which you may have in mind. We are melted with our farm life style. And try to understand and observe, who we are.

Try do addapt to our life and to get to know it, To learn a new culture.
- discover the farm, visit the animals, visit the field, forest. We have 100 cows, 20 sheeps and goats, and hm ... maybe some mouse from the field, and fox in the forest, deer, ;) for animals we dont need help, since its very demanding work, and we have a team who is taking care of them.
- don't miss any beautiful sunset here
- visit the caves, coast, mountains, cities
- spend time with our family when we work or when you see us working. After working spend time with volunteers who are here. Time on the rooftop, looking at sunset, enjoying the time in big kitchen with International family with different ideas what life is. We all can learn a lot.
- thank you for reading our profile and we would be glad to host you

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

Lots of love💕

On our farm is a life like a small comunity. We all live in same place, but also have our own space. We call it that a whole planet is staying at our home... We all work together But also separate, depends on the task on the day, but when you finish working it doesnt mean that we also (family) stop :) Please dont be dissapointed if the family members arent always around or inside the house. Be clear with your idea of what you are expecting and what we share here with you. 😊 Bogdan and our team are working through the day, 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... 🌻 There is always the right moment. It s the nature of our work, our lifestyle. We really try to take time for our family, kids, farm, volunteers, friends and also we need time for us 2: Metka and Bogdan as a couple. Day has 24 hours so we try to squeeze as much as possible in a day. Big hug and love for everybody...see u soon. But next to us you ll have a chance to meet amazing people (volunteers) from all around the world.

Me and my friends stayed at this farm for a little bit more than two weeks. We almost never saw the hosts during this time, because Metka was away. We only worked and ate together with the other voluteers most of the time, but when we saw the hosts they were really nice. The work can get exhausting, but there are many different tasks and you get to work together with the other voluteers, which was fun. Unforunately we ended up working more than five hours on many days, because there were still things that needed to get done.

I have loved my experience here, from the family lunches to being covered in mud. Everyone was so welcoming and kind. The work is tough at times with harvesting and cleaning the vegetables but some good music makes it fun. Be prepared to get dirty, if you come during the rainy season I would recommend good weather proof boots, water resistant pants and a rain jacket. You really do feel like you are part of the family and I am so thankful for my time here!

This was an absolutely an amazing experience! This was my first job and I did it with a friend but would be great to do as a solo as well. There are always other volunteers since there is much work around the farm. The hours are consistently 5 hours and outside of that there is plenty to do if you want to help more or learn about something new! Everyone is very welcoming and will always answer your questions. The work is dirty, fast paced, and detail oriented when getting veggies ready for market. Hitchhiking is about the only way to leave and come back to town but is very easy to do!

Brhanovi is a wonderful place to experience every aspact of a life on a real farm. You get to see and learn so much. Metka, Bogdan and Gregor are super friendly and made my stay at their farm unforgettable. Working hours were always as agreed and they provided us with everything, even more then that. It is a good place to learn slowenian and to get to know the country and the culture better. Kmalu se vidimo! Hvala lepa za vse!

I highly enjoyed my stay at the farm. Metka, Bogdan, Gregor and all the family members are so friendly, welcoming, understandable and always full of positive energie. I think it's impossible to be in a bad mood if they are around you :D. I learned a lot about many different types of vegetables and how to harvest and clean them. The work is varied and Metka always explains patient and answers all questions. Farm work is definitely not the only thing we can learn from her.
Metka, Bogdan and Gregor, Thank you so much for the possibility to stay at your peaceful farm! I wish you all the best! :)
