Adventures on our rural Hungarian farm


Aiming to be self sufficient, healthy and frugal in Somogy County, Hungary.

Hi! Welcome to our website.

We are Julia and Gareth, and our dream has always been to lead a low impact life and to be as self-sufficient as possible.

At the end of 2015 we took the plunge and swapped our suburban terraced house in Berkshire, England, for a run down farmhouse in the Somogy County in rural Hungary.

We are leading a simple lifestyle and enjoying the peace and tranquillity of our beautiful surroundings. Everyday is an adventure, discovering and learning, and making sustainable choices as we go along.
