Welcome on our “Living on a farm in Slovakia – Blog”. In May 2008 we have bought a smallholding in Slovakia without ever having seen it and we have moved to our farm in September 2008. Since then we have started to get acquainted with our neighbours, learn the Slovak language, renovate the house, regain our land from nature and we have actually started to farm on our land in spring 2009. On this blog you can follow our progress and setbacks.
Have fun reading it!

We got them planted. All five thousand. In our very dry loamy-clay soil with loads of stones, within four and a half very hot days. The trees absolutely got a temperature shock, we hope they will survive.
