  • Description

    Description

    Due to the Covid 19 situation we recommend only persons that are already in Norway to send us requests.

    We are a family of four (mother and 3 quite big children) living on the south west coast of Norway. I run a small organic farm on the shore of the sea.
    We have sheep and pigs, some chickens. We also grow food for the animals, grass and Oats. We have a Field of potatoes, quite a bit of berries, some fruittrees and a lot of vegetables. I run a CSA, which means people buy a share of the vegetables and come to the farm themselves to pick it up. Working at our farm is quite varied With many different Things which needs to be done.

    The farm and children take up most of my time. But we like to get out and about in the mountains, forest, sea or anywhere nice to explore around us. I also love books, and a good conversation.

I need help in the garden, taking care of animals and the barn, fencing and clearing fields, weedcontrol (lots of weeding :) ), working with vegetables, painting, woodworking and everything else happening on the farm. I would also like the volunteer to take it`s part in keeping the house and kitchen as a familymember.
