The Experience

We are a small family farm located in a beautiful remote area. We love to have help and company. Chores include work on the permaculture gardens, taking care of chickens and ducks, building with natural and conventional materials, kitchen chores, cooking and preserving food. Lots of fun in between, dancing, music and good vibes. You are welcome to join us in the wilderness.

The host family is very warm and welcoming and made me feel like part of the family, my daily tasks were consistent with what i'd expect from this environment and i believe the opportunity for personal growth is definitely here through the continuous teachings of Jalmer, Svet and Veronica

It was my first worldpackers experience and it was magical! Veronica, Jelmer and Svet are amazing people, I'm glad that I met them. I learned so many interesting things about farming especially permaculture. Throughout the days the weather was really hot, but they have a pool so you can cool down a bit.

Veronica, Jelmer and Svet are very kind people. The work was hard sometimes , but that was largely due to the heat. The farm is located on a beautiful mountain and is the perfect place if you're looking for some peace and quiet. I learned a lot and if I had questions, I could go to Veronica. The only drawback I found was that I was the only volunteer, but Veronica couldn't help that because the other volunteer didn't come in the end. Besides that I would reccommend this farm and it was a good place to have my first worldpackers experience.

We had a great experince voluteering at the farm, Jelmer, Veronica and Svet are lovely, the work was rewarding and varied, and the surroundings are beautiful. While we were there we learnt loads about permaculture farming practices, helped look after the chickens and ducks and helped build a fish pond. It is so peaceful there and it was the perfect place to welcome summer. We would recommend this experience to everyone :)
