This is a small organic farm with the ambition of nurturing the soul and the soil. For many years we (Eric and Emiilia) have had a vision to live a sustainable, spiritual life by putting into practice years of acquired knowledge and training. In the spring of 2017 we bought a small property in the very South of Sweden to realize our dream.
From the beginning our aim has been to create a small community for simple living and spiritually enlightened life. Simple living consists of using Permaculture principles for growing organic vegetables, berries, fruits and nuts, care for the farm animals according to the teachings of Ahimsa and Goraksya (non-violence, non-slaughter), and using manure to build up soil as in Regenerative Agriculture. Our commitment for nature and animals is based on a belief that the Earth and life are sacred and we need to nurture them and each other.
Our own spiritual practices are based on the ancient Vaishnava or Bhakti-yoga tradition of India (also known as the Hare Krishna tradition) and contain studying Vaishnava literature, individual mantra meditation and Kirtan-yoga (singing mantras together). All volunteers and visitors are are invited to learn and participate in this. But people practicing other spiritual traditions are also welcomed and offered the space for their practices. It is not required to have any spiritual practice at all in order to volunteer at our farm, but while sharing space, life and work together, we all need to have a curious and empathetic attitude towards spirituality.
We would like our volunteers to stay for two months, and during their stay, we ask from volunteers orderliness, reliability and politeness. For longer stays according to mutual agreement, or becoming a resident member of the community, we expect and offer more commitment. Sometimes we accept volunteers for a shorter time, if we have a special project and need more helpers with it.
On the premises, smoking and consumption of alcohol, drugs, meat, fish and eggs are not allowed. Volunteers are required to abstain from these products while on the farm.
Just now we are specifically looking for a volunteer who has experience in building/construction and would like to mainly work with it during his/her stay.
We also have a few spots available for long-time volunteers (8-10 months) through an EU-program. These volunteers would have some of their expenses payed and would receive pocket money during their stay. If you are interested in this, please send a normal application and we will instruct you further.

- vegan and vegetarian cooking and sour dough baking, with a focus on Indian and Italian cuisine
- preserving fruits, berries and vegetables
- languages including English and Swedish
- spiritual knowledge/ development through Bhagavad-gita readings, Kirtan-yoga and mantra meditation.
The help we need at the farm is made up of daily services and projects. The daily chores are: cow care and horse care, gardening, cleaning, cooking, baking and preserving. The projects include building, maintenance of buildings and animal training.
During the summer of 2021 our projects include: Building a greenhouse. Building an extra room in the attic of the Guesthouse. Building a compost toilet. Continue training the oxen for pulling a cart. There are also many different, smaller projects in connection to gardens or animal care, and volunteers are invited to propose and manage these.
Volunteers interested in building, both willing to learn or already competent, are especially welcome.
Please note that the chores on the farm is mostly physical and can be demanding if you are not used to physical work.
Deutsch: Gute Kenntnisse
Dieser Gastgeber bietet Sprachaustausch an
There are members of the community who would love to learn French, Spanish or Italian. The hosts can teach Swedish, Finnish and English for beginners or intermediate learners.
A guest house with in-suite bathroom or a small wooden cabin in an orchard. Bed linen, towels and washing detergent are provided. There is a washing machine available in the main house, together with an extra bathroom with a shower cabin. A compost-toilet is situated near the cabins.
We live in the beautiful countryside of Southernmost Sweden (Scania), but still relatively close to the cities of Lund, Malmö and Copenhagen. There is a bus stop nearby with decent communication to these bigger cities during the weekdays.
In the vicinity of the farm there are plenty of opportunities for trekking, cycling and day trips. You may check out the website skaneleden.se . The East and South coasts of Scania are within reach for a day-trip by bus or car, and there are some natural lakes/ponds nearby for swimming, reachable by bike or by a car. This part of Sweden also offers many historical and ancient places for sightseeing, like castles and towns with old architecture.
At any given time we have a minimum of 4 volunteers staying with us, but can host up to 8. Volunteers mostly live in shared, gender-separated rooms. For married couples or couples in a long-term stable relationship, we try to offer an accommodation together.
Two sumptuous meals (breakfast and lunch) are prepared every day by a kitchen team and taken together. All who partake in the common meals are expected to contribute towards making this work. For dinner and eventual snacks there is usually fruits, leftovers from lunch, bread and granola available for self-catering.
Besides the volunteers from Workaway and other similar programs, we are presently hosting 4 volunteer from an EU-program called the European Solidarity Corps. These volunteers are aged 18-30 years. During their stay they have a more organized daily schedule focused on learning and sharing. Our hope is that the interaction between the volunteers from different programs will be mutually beneficial for all involved.
Also new volunteers coming through Workaway may apply for entering the ESC-project at the farm, since some of the present ESC-volunteers need to be replaced during the summer. If you are interested in this possibility, please let us know!
