About us

We are an educational farm in which we produce our own food, offer English courses, camps, accommodation and farm rental. We teach students where food comes from and how it gets to our table, all about goat's milk, cheese making, bread baking and plant growing. The farm has belonged to our family for 4 generations and we farm on 6 hectares of land. We produce our own milk, meat, eggs, fruits and vegetables. Everything is organic. Our farm is in a beautiful location, surrounded by forests and meadows. We are 1 hour drive from Prague, easily accessible by public transport.

We look forward to you!

Terra Farma - English course on farm

The Central Bohemian farm educates children, teaches them to dig potatoes or kill rabbits. Some don't even know the basics

Today's world is increasingly returning to farming, as it did in earlier years. Terra Farma is an experimental educational farm in Chraštice, Central Bohemia, which grows its own food and teaches students where the food actually comes from, what it contains and how to grow plants, produce cheese or bake bread. The farm is managed by Ing. Václav Trávníček and his wife Ma. Bethany Staneland, originating in Canada. The owner of the farm, Václav Trávníček, spoke to us about the beginnings of the farm, its mission and plans for the future. What is the magic of this homestead?

Agroturism - vacation on the farm

The memories of the grandmother's and grandpa's holidays in the countryside, where hens were running in the courtyard and the surrounding meadows were dotted with sheep, are remembered by many of us. At the fast pace of today's technology society, we like to return to the glimpses of carefree times in nature and to a simple lifestyle in our free time. This is one of the reasons why holiday farms are increasingly promoting the addresses of simple farms and farms, which, within the framework of popular agritourism, offer us a few days of fresh air in the arms of nature.
