What We Need
We are a family of four in Hungary. We had three exchange students in the last few years and loved the experience. Now we would like to offer a different kind of exchange, a possibility for young adults. Something like WWOOF, but on a small scale...
We have a small farm in a small village in South-West Hungary. It looks a lot better than a year ago, but it still needs work. There is a big house, and a land is almost two acres. There are fruit trees already, and we started planting vegetables already. We have animals, chickens, sheep, goats, pigs, cats and a dog so far. We need helping hands and we would like to offer lodging and meals in exchange for 5-6 hours of work on the farm. If you decide to come you will not be a farm hand, you will be a family member! No experience is necessary, but if you know farming it is even better. The ideal volunteer has cooking skills, bikes and swims, and doesn't smoke or drink.
The work is already ongoing, so start date is yesterday!
When & Who
What we Provide
There is a separate room for the volunteers with three beds. Other areas of the house is shared. There is one bathroom with a shower.
We usually do not have set meal times. The food in the fridge, garden, pantry is for everyone. Feel free to eat if you are hungry. Feel free to cook for yourself or for everyone. If you need ingredients for cooking we can go shopping together, or just provide us with a list. We are meat-eaters! Our main source of meat is pork. If you do not eat pork, please choose another volunteering opportunity, because it makes meal preparation very difficult.
We do not charge a daily fee, your work is the daily fee.
A one time 100 Euro or dollar fee applies on arrival. We had a volunteer who stole from us and disappeared, and we do not want this to happen again!
