We try to keep up a real traditional organic sheep farm in the steep western fjord landscape- 300 m over the fjord. Most work demands a lot of hands and kind will, and a lot of cooperation. So workawayers with passion for managing nature are wanted! We live in a little, beautiful village- and we stribe to cooperate with eachother and the rescourses around us, in a way. Martin is a timber man, Ingvild is a nature conservation manager, Olav Martinus (15) and Olina Elfrida (17) are still at school, Jenny Justine(19) and Annemaja (21) are mostly abroad, sometimes at home. But very often we have nice workawayers in the house, two or three.

You will hopefully learn more about how to deal with small farming in a Norwegian climate. We hope to have some good moments of conversation about managing the nature and rescourses locally and globally. Some workawayers have learnt how to fish, how to make a fire, how to feed the sheep, how to dry the wet grass, and how to make dinner for a whole bunch without a recepi😀and we have learnt a lot from workawayers!
You might work with the grass and hay, mostly by hand with traditional techniques. There is also much work with our farm buildings, both painting and cleaning. Or perhaps you want to look after the sheep? Or make food in a Norwegian kitchen? You might also help us being a good host for tourists visiting the farm.

We have at time two houses for all of us living at the farm. You will have your own bedrooms with a bathroom, and eat together in the other house with all the family. The bedrooms are placed in the middle of the renovation area, so be prepared for some simple living :)
We live in a little, beautiful village close to Geiranger and the World heritage area "Western Norwegian Fjord Landscape".
The village has 140 inhabitants, many of them cooperating with their small local businesses. Here you find fjords for kayaking and fishing, and mountain summer farm with a lot of goats.
If you like mountain walking, or bathing in the cold sea, you find an eldorado here.
