✔️ About us
We are a married couple in 40s living in Sangju, Gyeongbuk. We both majored in tourism in college and got married and moved to the countryside for farming. We have been working as a WWOOF host for 3 years since 2007, and took a break to devote ourselves to child care. Now, we are active as a host after our children have grown up. We welcome vegetarians, and we are also interested in yoga, Buddhism, and meditation. We have three children, so it would be great to have someone who likes to hang around with kids.
