Raspberry organic farm

Our organic farm is located in east Slovenia (near Celje) on a beautifull hill. Our family decided 8 years ago to move from town, to the countryside. Since our movement, the farm keeps on growing. We started with cattle breeding.
We have 4ha of pastures, where we graze Highland cattles. On the farm are also laying hens.
On almost 1ha we grow raspberries. The picking season is from beggining of july, till the end of september- depending on the weather.
We have also a lot of different work every season.

We need 5 hours help per day (for 1 or 2 persons), one day per week off (ussually sunday- but it depends on the weather). The main work is from july till october when the picking season for raspberries is (we pick them ussually from 06.00-10.00 sometimes also in the evening from 18.00-20.00 - depends of the quantity of raspberries and weather). At that time also weeding the plant is needed- we ussualy do that in the evening hours. We also need occasional help by taking care of the animals (feeeding, watter supply, animal pasture, health control,..) all our animals are friendly and easy to take care of. The occasional help is also broming around farm, tidying up (outside), renovation, different repairs, firewood prepraration,lawn moving and other small projects. But the main help needed on our farm is picking the raspberries. We have a seperate residental facility with bathroom and one big room (bedroom with three single beds which is partially seperated with living room- big sofa) and with cooker- option to prepare coffe, tea or an easy basic meal (breakfast meals, pasta, soup…) and fridge. Free Wi-fi available. In summer (July,August) breakfast/meal is recommended before 06.30 or after 10.30. Becouse of the heat between 11.00-16.00 is it not posiible to work on the field. Between 12.00-15.00 we provide warn meal. Breakfest and dinner is up to each individual, we just provide you basic food for meal. In the area many activities are possible (hiking, lakes, city center, river,..) bike is available on our farm, or if you wish, we can also arrange you transport to a start spot and then pick you up (we can transport you up to 10 km away from or farm or we can take you to bus or train station in you want to visit distant places). If you are looking for quiet place, sorounded with animals, endless forest and desire to contribute to organic farming, feel free to contact us. The identification document is requered, short CV, and reasons why do you think you would be suitable for helping on our farm.

I can’t express in words how much this volunteer meant to me. It has definitely left a mark on my heart, on the best way possible. Monika and Jure are warm, lovely and caring people. I was very much looked after which made me feel more and more motivated to try and contribute as much as possible to their farm. They seemed passionate with their purpose of sustainable farming, and also take amazing care of the animals. I will miss Čarli, the cute cows and even the angry roosters. The facilities are amazing and clean, and everything needed was promptly provided. The work was easy!
All perfect!

I had an amazing experience at Monika and her families raspberry farm! I had never worked on a farm before and didn’t know what to expect, but Monika was very communicative and honest about everything before hand, which took away any of my worries. This experience taught me a lot about the sustainability and benefits of local farming. I felt so welcome and at home the entirety of my stay. Monika made us delicious meals and got us anything we asked for/needed in terms of groceries. The facilities are super comfortable. Genuinely felt so at home here! I highly recommend this work exchange!

Monika is the best host! She’s very welcoming, generous, and kind. Fun too! She’s a wonderful cook and provides you with everything you may need. You will definitely not go hungry. I ate like a queen while I was there. The work is easy and flexible and I got to learn a lot about organic farming. There’s also a bunch of free time to relax, play cards, or go for a walk in the surrounding area. The farm is located in a beautiful place with nice views all around. Overall, great experience and highly recommend!

Time flies when you're in gorgeous Slovenia, being hosted by Monika and her lovely family. Work consisted mostly of weeding because the raspberries were not ready to be harvested yet during my time there. Sometimes us volunteers would help out with other tasks but working hours were always perfectly respected. Monika is a superhost. She'll always be there to help you and she'd provide us with food and would also cook for us often. Overall I had an incredible time at the farm with Monika, her family, my fellow volunteers and all the beautiful animals that call the farm home. Najlepša hvala!

Monika and her family are absolutely adorable people. Their business and life style are so inspiring, they are respectful and accountable towards the nature and the people around them. If you are looking for a place to retreat from the craziness of the city, to reconnect with yourself, to be surrounded by a mighty nature, to connect with amazing people and learn about sustainability, this is the place to go!
