    We have a small, wonderful sheep farm in the mountains and deep, green woods of Norway.
    You will live with 100 sheep (during the winter, in the summer they are out in the foods), 3 wonderful, intelligent dogs (Marry, Frøya and Ruby) and us, Torfinn and Julianne. The farm seems to be isolated from the rest of the world, but by car do we reach in 40 min (20min next shop) the third biggest city in Norway (Torfinn drives there everyday to work).
    We, Torfinn and Julianne, have sheep since 20 years and we enjoy seeing the whole cycle of nature. This includes the sheep growing but also adjusting and enjoying the sessions of the year.
    In Spring when the snow melts we are getting lambs, releasing them over the amazing summer out in the green woods and in autumn going to fetch them from the woods with the dogs. In winter we work on the wool (making yarn and knitting) we harvested from the sheep and gather wood. During summer we also take care of several beehives and our small, fruitful little garden.
    We wish you to join us, have fun and do as you can and need. We have often many friends helping us, so we are used to live and share our space with other people and enjoy the exchange.

    dependent on the month of ur stay we have quite diverse work to do! Certainly in center of our life is to enjoy what we do and be relaxed, so we take it as it comes (of course feeding the animals...will always be necessary :) )
    in spring: we need help to that our 100 sheep give birth to their babies (it is intense and beautiful to see so much live), after that we seed tomatos, potatos, carros, cabbage...all you wish and all that grows
    in summer: we take care of the bees, harvest the honey and work in the garden, enjoy the sun, the rivers and fjord
    in autumn: then we start harvesting hey for the winter time and gather the sheeps from the woods, so we walk for several hours and have fun listening to the bells.
