    Description

    Our Family consists of 3 grown up kids. Five grandchildren. One kid is still at home. We are Family home so there is at the moment 3 kids from 8 - 20 in the home. There is always food in the kitchen. We eat 3 times a day. Together sometimes and sometimes anybody just cook and grab some food. It depends when everybody start school or end school or having a concert or working in the riding school. We have 32 islandic horses and 1 Siberian cat and 3 of her offsprings. We are musicians. Two children are professional in Folkmusic and Classical music. We are master fiddlers in Scanian folkmusic. There will be cultural exchange everyday if you like ;-) Three of us has won World Championship in Clogfiddling. The farmbusiness have 9 acre and a pond. A small labyrint. Beautiful surroundings. We teach in violin and two-row accordion. There is a riding school on the farm with 130 students including handicap students and tours are being held in the forest. We have breeding from 1 - 4 years old. There is always something to do in the house or all the buildings that needs to attend to and mend or build new stables for. And of course the garden. We live beautiful in the forest but close to Båstad, Helsingborg, Ängelholm and Laholm. My husband had a car accident because he had a huge cough and fainted the 9th of September so right now there is indeed need of help with the tractor (He can't drive) and all kind of hard muscular work. But he stopped smoking (no coughing any longer) so something good came out of it anyway ;-) At the moment the projects are digging for a new water pump at the mares stable, sand around the stallions stable.

    What else ...

    We have had over 100 voulunteers on our farm since 2007 and even made a TV show with an Irish television....They love to visit the picturesque village like Båstad, Ängelholm and Helsingborg to take a beer or look at the sea. A lot of them liked to walk and run in the beautiful forrest. Some liked to follow with us on festivals, concerts and learn how to dance and play. Others preferred the horses and took lessons. Some even got married with our carpenters and moved to Sweden...
