    Description

    Hi!
    My name is Stig H. I'am a farmer, from Särna, in north of Dalarna, in Sweden. I have mountain cows, who are a small, frettned rase, and i also have some goats, chickens, pigs, and cats. From the beginning of june, too the end of september, i live at the summer farm,up in the mountains, so from the beginning of june, til the end of september, we make our own butter, and "tjuckmjölk" (a special kind of milkproduct).

    I need some help, with most of the work we have, at the summer farm, and also home at the Village, with the harvest. Taking care of the animals, showeling poop, milking cows, some cleaning, and all the stuff that, is around to running a farm.
    When its autumn and we will move the cows from the summerfarm to the ordinary place, and I will introduce you to our common work at the farm with the animals.

    I Can be a host, for 2-3 persons, at the same time. And the shortest time to come and work at my farm is 3 weeks. But if u can stay longer, its preferable.

    U will learn how to take care of the animals, and see how they took care of the animals in the last century without electricity. This is an old cultrual farm up in the mountains, were u will learn alot - but u also must know that its physical hard and heavy work.
    Down at the ordinary Farm it is fully modern with electricity and so on. I will tell u more by mail.
    its a very beautiful area up at the mountains, with lakes, rivers and wilderness. If u like to hike, skiing, go by snowboard, and fishing, this is a really nice place.

    What else ...

    Hiking the mountains, fishing, swimming. Up at the mountainfarm it is no transportation, but nice area for hiking and fishing. U can try out to take a dip in the creek - icecold but so nice! The water is so clean that you can drink it directly.
    at the ordinary farm, there go some buses to the bigger places like Idre or Mora(bigger city). Here we also have some pub and pizzarestaurant and some small stores. Also a really nice sand-beach to take bath in the summertime. And we have 3 nice ski resorts in this area.
