    Welcome to our farm

    We are a family of five,
    Daniel 33
    Mai 31
    Charlie 6
    Lili 4
    Rosa 2

    We are a small scale organic farm (3,5ha). It is run as a part time self-sufficiency project, where we try to find our own little niche in profitable farming. We've had sheep, pigs, geese, ducks, rabbits and a flock of free range chickens. Right now we have our most prominent resident, the cat Rene Dif, and brand new chicks, ducks and geese

    In the spring of 2018 we have been traveling as workaway'ers ourselves. Gathering experience and inspiration for new projects on our farm. That means a lot of exciting work ahead. We will start again with chickens and ducks, and plan to put a lot of energy into the vegetable garden. Handling firewood and general maintenance and updating the buildings and garden will, as always, be important.

    Another huge project for 2018 will be our B&B housewagon. When complete, our workaway guests will have a fantastic place to stay.
    Please note, that until the wagon is complete, workaway guests will sleep in a "camplet".
    Bathroom is shared with our family. You are welcome to join us for three daily meals.

    We wish to experiment with poly dome and tunnel.


    Update: Two little pigglets just joined tur farm, Lasse and Stine we call them. It wasnt planed for, but we couldnt resist the smelly little pink piggies.

    We also have about 20 chickens. 15 are still yellow and soft 😁

    And 10 ducks now swim in our pond.

    We just finished building a new chickencoop.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We are in most ways a typical danish family. We used to live in the city, but decided to move to the countryside to raise our kids sorrounded by nature and animals. To show them where their food comes from and help them appreciate nature as we do. We hope to share our lives with interesting people from arround the world, and teach our kids (and ourselves) that people have diffrent customs and look and speak different around the world.

    We are in the heart of Vendsyssel - the northernmost part of jutland and Denmark. By car there is about a 30-45 min drive to almost anywhere in the region. For example some of the most popular beaches in the region, as well as Aalborg City. We will be happy to suggest sights according to your interests.
