The Experience

I need help with some repairing and to take care of the garden, harvest vegetables - when it is time to collect apples - and make forest work. Some help with neighbors with their problems, or have some freedom and peace by doing other things around. Design nice pictures and letters to make the building nice. I make also a stage in my farmhouse. If you have any other ideas, tell me! Come have fun =)

Being a vegan my biggest struggle during the stay was with food but otherwise Alex is a great host. It’s great to work together with him. He is very friendly and engages in a lot of interesting talk about different projects that can be implemented in a farming context.

Exceeded my expectations. Alex is a great host and will provide what you need. He will explain how to do it, in case you don't know and all you have to do is follow the path. I learned new things while I was here. Alex was very aware of the environment. I had a unique and differentiated experience. I met people and learned new cultures. I'll be back when possible.

Since my arrive I felt like in my own home, Alex will provide you what you need. For the tasks Alex is gonna explain you how to do it in case you do not know and all you have to do is follow the way. I learned new things while I was here.
The place is located in a small town, very nice and quiet. I was only two weeks but in these I had a really good experience in all senses!

Alex was a very nice host, provides every thing we need, clean and worm place, few hours task every morning, and 2 days off every weekend, I enjoyed the cooking experience, if you know how to cook Alex will provide you everything you need, he loves to exchange experience and willing to help when needed, he provides a pick up and drop from Mögglingen Gmünd station, but make sure being precise with the time of arrival so he can slot and schedule your pick up, over all my experience was awesome and I would return to this place again in the future.
Thank you Alex :-)

Alex was a great host with a warm heart. Working aspect is more varied than the either just "cooking or gardening" which personally we found kept things interesting. It is remote a remote village so a love of outdoors and saving big plans for the weekend is advised.
Thanks to Alex and happy new year from Tom & Kyra
