  • Description


    We are a family of max six, now often only four. We have four "children" at 14,17,19,20. 40 sheep with 80 lambs.
    We live in an old, steep mountain farm with a nice view, in the middle of the mountains and fjords of Western Norway. Organic farming, traditional landscaping, block printing. A lot of work by hand, less machine work. We also cooperate with other sustainable small local producers in the little village Norddal. Just now we are renovating our main house, so we also earch for skills in building, plumbing, electrics and other usefull help.

    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 :)

    What else ...

    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.
