    Description

    We are running a small horse-farm on the Island of Föglö, belonging to the Aland Islands between Sweden and Finland. We have 5 horses, a very friendly dog, 2 pigs, chickens and bees. 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, 19, living on a horse-farm in Sweden 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

    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!
