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 finally found a solution to escaping animals. We have spent a small fortune on electric impuls devices which all proved either to weak or simply not robust enough for our animals. Goats simply jump the fence, sheep go for mass attack. We have found a local electrician who makes home made devices. Our animals are deeply impressed and stay at least 1mtr away from the fence! A nice present for the 4th of october!
