My time at the organic cheese farm was very good. It is an amazing place to stay if you want to learn about the life and the work with cows (and other animals)… I really grew to love the cows and I will miss them, as well as the people I worked with.
So thank you for the great experience…

I really recommend this experience if you love nature and you want to learn about how to make cheese or work in a farm with cows.
It's a lovely place to stay and it's not far from the city. The workers there make you feel like at home all the time and they take care of you if you need something.
People there love the cows and all the cows have their own names. It's a very nice farm.
Some days there is a lot of work to do but if you are ready and you want to learn you will have a great time.
I enjoyed a lot this month there and I will come back to visit the cows again for sure!

My stay at the farm was a great and unique experience. The cheese/yoghurt/panna cotta/and more processes were very interesting and the cows got a special place in my heart forever. Although, the environment can be quite stressful. Frank and Gudrun got a lot of deadlines and work to do and they don’t always seem to know how to cope with it. This results in stress, which is passed along to the people around them. But when not in these stressful situations they are very kind and generous people with a lot of knowledge and love for their farm. The team was great as well with some lovely people.

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 :)
