    We are Elisabeth and Andreas, and our two children - our son (4) and daughter (1.5).

    Our goal is to work on our soil and ecosystem health with grazing cows, and we are inspired by the likes of Joel Salatin, Allan Savory and Greg Judy amongst others, and use Holistic Management as our decision making framework.

    Our farm is in Lødingen Vestbygd, a rural area in Northern Norway with about 300 inhabitants. Our farm is about 100 acres total, with a 1/4th of that cultivated for grazing.

    With us you'll get experience with all kinds of farm work, like moving cows, building fences, various maintenance and so on. We are also starting a popup restaurant, where we might need help if that's interesting.

    In your free time it's possible to participate in beer brewing, going out on Vestfjorden for some of the best saltwater fishing in the world, and enjoying the great outdoors that Northern Norway offers.

    The accomodation will consist of your own room either in our house or a separate house, and in both cases you'll have access to all basic amenities. However, there is no general use wifi available, so if you need to be online 24/7 this is perhaps not the best fit.

    Also - we require you to have a strong command of English or a Scandinavian language. If in addition to that you also have a valid driver's license and eat an omnivorous diet, it'd be a great advantage.

    Looking forward to hearing from you!

    Kultureller Austausch und Lernmöglichkeiten

    Northern Norway provides a pretty unique framework, not only with spectacular nature, but an open and welcoming population. With us you'll be part of our lifestyle, but also have the choice to get to know the local community and get involved. We personally enjoy literature, music, art, craft, chess, good food and drink, and pretty much anything else that's interesting.

  • Arbeit


    What we need help with depends on the season. There is animal moving, fencing, maintenance, forest help, housekeeping and many other things - life on a farm isn't always easy to predict. We appreciate clear thinkers and communicators, good cooks and practical skills.

  • Unterkunft


    Your own room either in our house or in a separate house. There is no wifi available - if being online/glued to a screen is a priority for you, this is probably not the right place. However, there is the possibility for limited internet access when necessary.

    We provide linen and other common amenities. We expect tidy and organized people with good social intuition - having lived with others before may be useful.

    Foodwise we are adventurous omnivores. Alternative diets are hard to accomodate, but let us know and we can talk about it. We share some meals, though volunteers will mostly cook for themselves/participate in batch cooking.

    Was noch ...

    In your time off you may enjoy nature that is just outside your door, participate in social events or various activities in the community or perhaps borrow a book from our library that does contain some interesting titles. Please be proactive in this department, and don't expect to be entertained - we will include you as much as we can, but also have more than enough with managing the farm, family and business.
