I had a great time at the farm! I can definitely recommend it, if you're looking for some time off loud city noises and stress. The farm is very rural and simple, with no wifi, just other farmers around you and you're gonna share a room with the other volunteers.
Stahtis and Amanda (the hosts) are very nice people, they don't have that much time for you since they have a lot to do, but that doesn't matter because there are always other volunteers to talk to.
If you have any questions about the daily routines or anything else, just write me:)

Laura was wonderful always eager to help reliable and with a lovely happy character it was lovely to host her. Even though she had limited experience of horses she tried hard and helped in so many ways and did a great job. She is mature hardworking and very Safire to be around. It was unfortunate that when she was here Stathis and I were really busy and so had limited time to socialize. Thank you Laura for everything and we wish you well.
