We are running a small organic farm on the Island of Föglö, belonging to the Aland Islands between Sweden and Finland. We have 7 horses, a very friendly dog, chickens and bees. We have some fields for the horses, we grow hay and we have a garden for wegetables, fruit trees and berries. The surroundings are beautiful and quiet, the people living here love the nature, fishing and hunting. We have ferries connecting to east and west. To the family belongs me, Karin, who is a former riding-teacher, nowadays just working part time because of my reuma, my daughter Viola, 20, living close to Mariehamn at the moment, and 3 grown-up sons, sometimes visiting us.
I play the violin and it would be lovely if you also play!

Help with Eco project
Help in the house
We need help with the animals and the garden, with some painting of buildings and help in the household. We are also picking berries, from the garden and wild berries from the forest. Our farm is ecological and staying here is also learning not to waste resources if not necessary. We also have an old beautiful wooden boat, Doris, which is used for fishing and excursions.
If you want to work with the horses you must be experienced, our horses are young or sensitive and not for beginners.
We offer accommodation in a cabin of your own, free meals and a lot of beautiful nature.
Minimum stay is 4 weeks!
