    Beschreibung

    In 2017 I decided to leave my old career in the restaurant industry and moved back to the farm I grew up on.
    Here I spend most of my time working in the forest, logging and thinning in the winter and planting cultivating in the summer.
    The summer is also spent maintaining the network of forest roads and building new ones in preparation for upcoming seasons.


    The farm is in Hillestad, 50 minutes from Oslo and 15 minutes from Holmestrand, a small city by the Oslofjord.

    Kultureller Austausch und Lernmöglichkeiten

    You'll be able to learn forestry and work techniques and skills related to my work.
    My family is fairly active politically ranging from conservative and liberal to pretty far left.
    I'm a trained chef and often cook traditional Norwegian meals.
    If you want to learn or improve your ropes behind a bar I built myself a full bar upstairs where I'll happily share my skills and experience from many years as a bartender.

    The main work is forestry with changing tasks following the seasons, in the spring there's a few weeks of firewood production.
    As a side project I'm working on the renovation of a cabin I have up in the forest, built a new roof in 2018, hope to finish the new floor and interior this year.
    Since it's a old farm there's always some painting and renovations to the buildings that should be done too.

    It's 15 minutes from the Oslofjord.
    Nature is close by with the forest behind the house and Hillestad lake behind the field in front of the house.
