About

We're Lizzie & Leo,
an English/Bulgarian couple looking after two beautiful cob farmhouses and various animals. We're currently accompanied by a donkey, dogs, cats and a few chickens.
We were both kindergarten teachers and we also make wooden toys when we have time. We love children and we welcome families.

What kind of work is available:
Gardening, food preservation, cob renovating, furniture making, building, house keeping, animal care, wood chopping and cooking.

What we're looking for:
4 Hours of work/ a day - for shared accommodation (not including food);
6 hours of work/ a day - for shared accommodation and food;
0 hours of work/ a day - 10lv per person (food not included).

Accomodation:
Our accomodation is basic, but sweet. We have spring water through our taps and hot water in our shower (after we've lit a fire for our boiler) We have a compost toilet 20 metres from the house. There is wood heating/cooking stove in every room.

Location:
The place is not easily accessible by car and is an hours walk from the nearest village, which is something to keep in mind if you have any medical condition or any trouble with walking. On the other hand, being up in the hills, it's a good place to relax and re-connect with nature. The air is pure and the water is sweet :)

The farm is 2km up the mountain from the nearest town- Tserovo (which is one hour by train from Sofia). Tserovo's population is 2,000. There are also shops, a school (primary and kindergarten), cafes, bars, restaurants and a library in Tserovo.
-------------

CROP farm was the first farm in Bulgairia to take in WWOOF volunteers. In 2004 WWOOF Bulgaria was established by the founders of CROP Farm. One of the founders Dr Ian Sanders helped created the farms, water system and very productive gardens with a good lowtech irrigation system.

Both Ian and his wife Cat have many years experience and education in farming and they have established a beautiful organic, permacultural farm. After 7 years of working hard and setting up the systems and gardens both Ian and Cat are having a break from farming to develop their skills in teaching and to allow a chance for others to experience looking after the farm.
