Volunteer House

We have 2 volunteer houses. One for 6 volunteers and the other for 7 volunteers. The houses lay at the entrance of the farm. As the farm is large, the houses lay more or less 20 minutes walk from the centre of the farm where most activities take place. During the week the volunteers get a ride in our pick-up up to the farm and if the pick-up is present also a ride down to the volunteer house when the day ends.
