  • Description


    My name is Johan and i am living on a farm in Back, Jamtland close to Åre (downhill skiing capital of Sweden). Its an old dariy farm now slowly converting to an organic farm and more....
    I am easy going, self learned (mostly), 54 years old with a thousand projects...
    My daugther spends her schoolhollidays with me when she can.
    Im looking for someone that can help out here on the farm with my thousands of ideas and projects...!

    When you dont work you have the perfect surrondings for outdoors activitys ive got some kayaks and i am buliding a canoee right now, it might be finished when you get here probably not!. I can also lend you other outdoor stuff if you need.
    I am looking for a couple that are openmided, fun and love to help me out with all my projects.
    It could be building, gardening anything really, always digging for some reason?..!
    I got some chickens too,so we eat good eggs every day!

    2024 i will be changing all my windows or rather modify them so 2024 it would be good if you know how to work with wood. But ofcourse also growing stuff. I also might build something as usual.

    If you come to stay here you will see the Swedish nature up in the "fjälls" (moutains). We will be swimming in lakes and shower in waterfalls or go climbing the "fjälls". If you are into fishing we will do that! I also got a few bikes, here is only one road but it goes two ways! East and west!
