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 and feed up some calfs from time to time and a dog of course. 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.
DIY and building projects
Creating/ Cooking family meals
Help around the house
I hope they learn a bit about a Norwegian lifestyle, a lot about organic faming and have the possiblity to enjoy Our nature and life here :)
I would love to get someone who likes to work and be part of our farm. 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.
We have a seperate little flat for volunteers with 2 bedrooms and a livingroom. Toilet and shower will still be in the main house.. There is internetaccess but it is pretty slow so not so good for downloading big things like movies and so on.
I hope to give you a good experience. I am very strong comitted to the farm and our life here. I hope that staying with us gives you more than it takes, in learning a bit about norwegians, a bit more about organic farming.
We look forward to get to know a lot of interesting people.
