On the ground level of the studio, there is a kitchen, a dining corner and a bathroom with a shower cabin. There is also a sofa bed.

Work

We continuously receive requests about work on our farm. Over the last few years we have responded positively to a number of them, but also had to turn down others. Here is how we operate:

Against accommodation, we request farm work for 4-5 hours a day. This is not necessarily work with the horses; it may be general farm work, depending on what needs to be done at the time. Tasks may include feeding animals, planting, weeding, collecting firewood, etc. We always start with a one week trial, and only then potentially offer the opportunity to spend some more weeks on the farm. This works well with both the job seeker and us. In case you are interested, please get in touch over e-mail.
