Pésima experiencia. Tuve que activar el seguro WP para arrancar.
Los dueños tienen un pésimo trato hacia los voluntarios.
Yo alegué porque nos hacían trabajar de más(un día incluso trabajé 12 horas), así que me dijeron que me pagarían.
Un día Gudrun (host) comenzó a gritarme y a quejarse por su trabajo. Se volvió loca y me gritaba “i’m a crazy bitch”. Por el mal trato decidí irme.
Al día siguiente Frank (host)se puso muy violento hacia mi. Me tenía que pagar las horas extra, pero me pagó menos y cuando le alegué se puso muy agresivo.
Entre algunos de los insultos, me dijo “you are a cunt”.

Working in the farm is a unique experience. Since the beginning you’re going to feel like home. Everyone there is so kind and friendly, Coni, Alberto, Chelsea and William made my stay a wonderful time, as well as Frank and Gudrun. The cows, dogs and cats are always ready to give you love ☺️ You’ll work hard milking the cows, making cheese or taking care of it, but this is once in a lifetime experience, so it’s worth it. It has helped me grow as a person, I’ve learned about farming and my way of looking at life. I would repeat this experience without hesitation. Thank you all the farm team💓💓

my first experience, and it was amazing its a shame i can't stay longer. farm work is not for everyone its hard work and a tight schedule. the work some days can be more than 5 hours. the cows are beautiful and they have personalities! you will absolutely love them. everyone on the farm is nice and eager to help. frank is generous and kind with his cows. it wasn't volunteering, it was living with family, it felt like helping my dad and my siblings, a big farm family :)

I had so much fun here and the 5 weeks went so fast. I had never been on a dairy farm before so everything was new to me. Frank was great with explaining how the farm worked and Gudrun cooks the best food. I found it so fascinating learning how to make cheese and yogurt. And I will definitely miss the cows....and the dogs....and the cats....and the cheese
