Hello, my name is Agust and I live in a farm in the south of Iceland. On the farm with me lives also my son Jón 17 year a old and daughter Álfheiður 11 years a old comes every other weekend. I have 3 other older daughters Hildur, Elísabet and Kolbrá and 3 grandchildren, 2 more on the way. In another house on the farm lives Timo (who was working here some years ago and now lives here with his wife and son and works as a carpenter).
The work is mostly about taking care of 3 small cabins we have around the house. There is also some farm work like feeding the cattle's and sheep's. There might also be some general maintenance work around the farm, especially in summer. We would also require help around the house, keeping it tidy along with other members of the house/family and maybe cooking sometimes. So the work is quite versatile and flexible.
We have a car that the workers can use if they want to go to town or maybe do some sightseeing, I am very keen that the people who come here experience the beautiful landscape that is around us
I have had a lot of people come here and work with us through the years. People from all over the world and we are still in good contact.

We have cattles, sheeps and horses. The cattles are around 200, the number of calfs every time is various. The cattle work is easy and fun and I mostly take care of them. In summer we have horses inside, but we do not require that you are into horseback riding but if you are interested you can try to ride. The sheeps are outside over the summertime and come inside in the autumn, over the autumn and winter the sheeps stay inside and we feed them 2x a day.
The main work is to take care of rental cabins we have at our farm.
I work outside all day almost, working on fields and another stuff connected to the farm work. So I would require a help around the house, taking care of some laundry and another easy house - work, keeping the house tidy.
We offer free accommodation and pay standard wages for hours worked.
If any questions please don't hesitate to send me a line.
