    Description

    Hello,
    We are a family on a sheep farm in eastern Norway, close to the Swedish border. As we live in a designated area for wolf, bear,lynx and wolverine, there is a bit work around safeguarding sheeps behind fences on the fields close to house. There is also chickens, dog, cat and a parrot here.

    In this area there is possible with hiking in the deep "finnish" forests. We also live a few meters from a lake where you can fish and swim. One of the projects this year is to move a sauna next to the water.

    Accommodation is in a off-grid timber "lake cabin". Access to all other facilities about 200 meters away in main-house.

    We love to have wwoof guests, but seems alot of people has attended workaway. We enjoy learning from each other, culture exchange, and fulfil some shared goals in daily-life as a nice experience.

    One or two workawayers that are interested in farm-life, nature and having a nice and meaningful time with ability to complete projects is wanted. Will it be you?

    A few expectations:
    - all volunteers must know English on an intermediate or above level.
    -Interest in farmlife/nature/wildlife is mandatory for a farmstay.
    -use of house, cabin and stuff in a tidy and careful way.
    -we go sleep relatively early, and wake up relatively early.

    The projects are many, but revolves around farm life. We adapt the work to skills. Sometimes 4 hands, instead of two is enough, but everything from helping with firewood for winter, fencing, stone clearing, mechanics, DIY projects, designing the look of rooms, clean/tidy, organize, build, paint, help with fields, make a man cave garage, landscaping, sauna, kitchen garden, cooking, pick berries, fishing etc etc.

    The projects follow seasons and weather-conditions. Spring, summer and autumn is the busiest and is in essence about preparing for winter. (Winter is coming!)
