  • Description


    We are a couple (51 & 58) from the Netherlands who have been living in Sweden for 15 years. We live on a farm with 8 hectares of land / forest in the beautiful area Värmland. On the farm we have 3 small ponys and if all goes well two baby ponies in April/May , 2 small dogs and two cats. The farm is located near by a beautifull lake where you can swim and fishing. The hole area is surrounding with big woods where you can walk for hours and meet a lot of wild animals and find a lot of product like wild berry's and mushrooms. On the farm we work with the horses, in the woods, on the land. We collect natural products for producing essential oils alsoo. We enjoy working with young people and, if possible, teaching something about nature and life. We do our best to live in harmony with nature and the animals around us.
