    We are a family of 6, but we are only 3 living here at home. Gestur (58), Jóna (57) and Júlía (23).
    This is a dairy farm (with a robotic milker) , located in the north west and is about 50 km from Sauðárkrókur. We have 1 shepherd dog. We have around 60 milking cows, 200 sheep and few horses.

    Help

    We need someone who can help us around the farm. Milking, feeding and take care of the sheep. We go two times a day to milk and feed the cows, 7 am. and around 5 pm. We have a robot who takes care of the milking and also a robot who gives the calves milk.
    We also need help with the typical summer tasks, like hey making and repair fences.
    We need a volunteer from the beginning of June to the end of August.
