Mekta is a phenomenal woman who holds the entire farm together! Spent a month at this wonderful place. If your interested in the working of a farm look no further! Their kind, knowledgeable and willing to help as long as it doesnt disrupt working life. They have the volunteers in a dorm and provide a stocked up kitchen (for dinners). They are really well organized in terms of working hours and tasks and so the rest of the day is left to you . Definitely recommend:)

I enjoyed so much the experience in the farm. Metka is amazing, she organizes perfectly the working hours, takes time to explain how to do each task, she is very supportive in work and she cooks delicious meals for lunch. The atmosphere among the volunteers was very nice. Thank you for everything 🤗

The true, it was a great stay, I did know amazing people, I shared unforgettable moments and it was more time that I thought, for a logistic problem that Metka helped me to solve. She is a excellent person and very understandable. I did know the around villages, I did great walks with the other volunteers and we had a very nice relationship, definitely if I'll come back to Slovenia is a place that I would visit in a future a little further away 😉😅

This experience was absolutely amazing and definitely what I was searching for. I loved enjoying the nature nearby and focusing on the vegetables while working. The hours are exactly as described and there is even a break everyday. The dorms and facilities are clean and organized. Everyone here is super welcoming, including the family and the other volunteers! The host, Metka, is an amazing and unique person that is a great listener. She went above and beyond to make sure we were enjoying our time here. I recommend this place 110%! I hope to come back in the summertime! Thanks for everything!
