  • Description


    We are a couple living on our old farm on Fyn, with our dog Fiona, our cats and our horses Melisse, Karl William and the newest foal Hector Viggo and a dynamic amount of eggproducing organic chickens. We also, depending on the season and other circumstances, have pigs, calfs and the occasional sheep or other animals. I, Troels, am danish and work fulltime as a personal care assistant all over Denmark, and my wife Soledad is from Argentina and helps around on the farm. We speak fluent Danish, English, spanish and "dog" at the farm. ;)
    Our goal is to make an organic chicken farm with small chicken houses to provide the best possible life for the chickens, whos eggs we sell privately. At present we have around 70 chickens and started the process of becoming an organic farm. Besides the chickens we would like to become as selfsustainable as possible. We are very calm and easy going and will welcome anyone who has an interest in the country life.

    We live in a beautiful danish landscape with loads of possiblilities for walks and enjoying the quiet. We also live close the the city Odense and regularly takes trips where visitors are welcome to join. The ocean is always close by in Denmark as well. In our house lives a good feeling of inclusion, good spirit and openness between all cultures and opinions. Good discussions are always welcome around the table.
    Our main feature is food. In this house we always eat well and enjoy good cooking. I am a cook and enjoy sharing my love of food and welcome any good inspiration you might bring to the household. I am also interessted in Design, history and culture. Soledad can help with your spanish and argentinian cooking and culture- the relaxed lifestyle of the argentinians and enjoying Mate (the tea).

  • Accommodation


    We have 2 guestrooms that are adjoint that are seperate from the main house, so there is room for privacy as well. However if more than two volunteers are with us, the entrance is through one of the rooms. In both rooms are 2 single beds. This makes room for 4 volunteers at any time and if no one else is visiting there is also a guestroom in the house with a double bed.
    There will be breakfast, lunch and dinner provided in general, but there may be days where the volunteers will need to either help or cook for themselves if Troels is not at home. Breakfast and lunch is in general a typical danish one with bread and cold cut meats + ofcourse coffee. If you have speciel requirements for the food (vegetarian or vegan) please just let us know and we can accomodate.
