    Description

    We have a farm with ponies, sheep, cows, hens, goats and cats. I work mostly alone on the farm. I am a woman mid thirty. The farm work is oldfashioned hands on. And we prefer volunteers That are realy fond of animals. That means prefer to spend their free time cuddeling The animals or beeing arround them. Me and my boyfriend and our daughter (9), and a son of my boyfriend (16)(every second week), live at the farm. My boyfriend also has a grown up son (19) who comes to visit every once in a while. For me the animals are the most important at the farm. They are our friends and collegas.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Here we run a farm. And its a 24/7 job for me. I expect anyone who comes here to do their best and always put the best of the animals first. Some times of year can be really hectic and some can be a bit more relaxed. But we expect people to be interested in farming and learning about farm chores. If you only want a cheap Holiday in norway you will be disappointed (and so will we). We expect full effort Five hours Five days a week. And you offcourse get to take two days of each week to Explore The arear or do What ever you Want. The days must be arranged With The other workawayers so there is always one workawayer at The farm if Your two or more. We are open minded and like to discus politics and everyday things with people who stay here. I think its interesting to get to know different people and cultures. And i also like to tell about Norwegian history and tradition. If you have a Chance to bring a car you should. Public transportation is verry limited. We also expect everyone to do their share of household work. Cleaning dishes and keeping The house tidy.
    We can not welcome workawayers Who bring dogs or other animals. No smokers. And you have to speak english realy well.
