The Experience

Huck and Klara share a farm north of Brno in the Czech Highlands. Due to work, Huck will be away much of 2020/21 and during this time Klara would appreciate help with the horses and work around the farm. For most of the year, you would have your own room and if this is not available we will write this beforehand. We work a half-day on Saturday and share in the household work such as cooking and cleaning :)

My experience with Huck and Klara was nothing less than amazing. They were really nice to me since my first day and made me feel like home during all my stay. The job there is hard, but they know it and you can have some breaks during the day to eat and drink some coffee or tea. Talking about eating, they let me open the fridge and prepare my own meal if I get hungry but one of then usually prepare something to everyone one each meal, and btw they are really good cooking. The horses are lovely and friendly, if want to have contact with nature and animals I highly recommend this place 😁

This experience taught me so much about animal care and having responsibilities. Klara, Huck, and Tim took special care to teach me things when I asked (Making meals, training the horses etc.). I will say that this experience is not for everyone, the work is tiring and the hours are dispersed throughout the day so it can feel long. If you are not someone who loves horses and wants to learn about farm maintenance this might not be for you. I went on some wonderful rides with Nico and Sasha. Do know that in order to ride you need to have experience. I am very grateful for my time there.

Good experience overall, working with the animals is great, the hours and the tasks were as described, the house is really nice and the surroundings are beautiful! Only thing i would suggest is being less controlling about the volunteer's food intake - situations like being called out for putting "a lot of milk" on my cereals at breakfast happened quite a lot and it made me feel quite self-conscious. Huck can be harsh but it's his personality, don't take it personally. Klara is great, always making sure you're comfortable and have everything you need :) Will definately miss the horses a lot!

The farm is a really nice and well taken of place in the middle of a beautiful part of the Czech republic. The work involved animal care, household tasks and work like gathering firewood. The work can be physically hard and some tasks need to be done at hard-set times, other than that there is a lot of flexibility and room for discussion. Klara, the host, is very nice and easy to talk with. We (travel partner and I) ended up learning the farmlife isn't for us and they were very understanding of our choice to leave a bit earlier. A good place to get back to basics and to nature.

Good place to learn about living on a farm and taking care of animals. Great if you like nature and don't mind some hard work. For me, it was not what I was expecting. The hours are spread out over the day which leaves little time to explore other places. Also no locals. It's something I should have known before applying. You do have one half and one full day off per week. Klara (host) is very nice, a good host and very understanding about me leaving early. I recommend it to everyone who wants to learn about farm life or getting some time off the grid for yourself. The place is beautiful! 💕
