    We are living on a farm which is located on the south coast of Iceland. Just under volcano Eyjafjallajökull, near the black beach and the sea. We have 20 horses, chickens, a sheep, dog and cats.

    We mostly need help with cleaning, cooking and taking care of our kids. We are looking for a person who has good patience and a big heart for the kids. Good if you have been around/working with kids before. Hopefully you are also a tidy person and have been living on your own so you know what it’s like to take care of a home.

    We also need help with taking care of our animals. Chicken, horses, dogs, cats and rabbits.

    We also need help with painting and other reparations in the house. So if you know how to building, (small or bigger things), and not afraid to work hard, that is a plus.

    We have 20 mares with foals and riding horse. We have a garden that needs attention and time.
