We are a family of four living on a small farm on an islands outside Kragerø.
Took over the farm after Erling's father summer 2019, and continued with sheep as the main project. We have about 100 sheep's, potatoes and are planning to start up with vegetables.
We need help with taking care of the animals, building shelters and fences for them, clearing fields and pastures that are owergrown and general maintenace at the farm.
You shold have practical experience and some construction experience. Couples is preferred as we live quite remote and it is easier if you bring your own company. :)
Today we produce potatoes and lamb which we sell both locally and deliver.
