We are a family farm growing vegetables and egg production in Eastern Norway, one hour driving from Oslo. We grow mostly spring onion during season to deliver to the shops and we also have hens for producing eggs.
We grow a lot of different vegetables for selling in our self-service farm shop.
We live in a farm house with our 2 children (10 and 8 years old) and we have 3 cats as well. Grandparents live also on the farm in the house next to ours. There are usually other workers at the farm, especially during the main season (April-October).
The farm is situated just next to the main road and there is a bus stop with connections to bigger towns and Oslo. The closest town called Vikersund is just 7 km away, where you can find shops, bank, train station and the biggest ski jump in the world.
We really like to do outdoor activities and we are happy for everyone who wants to join us. Mainly we do orienteering, jogging, hiking, cycling and cross country skiing in the winter.
Cooking / shopping
Help in the house
The help mostly depends on the season, but the main tasks would be:
- taking care of henhouse (picking and sorting eggs)
- seeding spring onion
- harvesting spring onion and vegetables
- preparing spring onion for shop delivery
- chopping and sorting fire wood
We may also need some help with some minor things as cleaning machinery, housework or repairing things.
If anyone is interested in cooking we would highly appreciate it as well :)
You can experience a typical Norwegian family and way of living. You can learn a lot about traditions, culture and farming in Norway. Learning Norwegian language can be quite fun and we will definitely try to help you with it.
English, Norwegian, little German
You will get your own room in our house, or a room in the older house just opposite ours. We have too big living rooms for everyone, and of course there is a shower and wi-fi.
We tend to spend a lot of time outdoors, mostly running orienteering. We go hiking in the summer and cross country skiing in the winter. There are many lakes and rivers around the place, where you can either swim or go fishing. In the forest there is plenty of berries everywhere during summer.
We provide both vegetarian and meat made food, so everyone can find what he likes.
There are also many possibilities for hiking and visiting some interesting places not far from the farm. It is normally possible to borrow bicycles from us, in case their are operational :), if not you can try to repair them and use.
We had many workers during the years, but through different programs, but now it is time for Workaway :)
