  • Help


    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 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 a garden that needs attention and time.

    There is riding horses if you would like to try horseback riding. We have some mares that Siggi is mostly looking after. But other than that, we dont need any help with the mares.
