  • Description


    We’re a family of five, two adults and 3 children age 1-4 years. We’re trying to adjust our lifestyle to become more self sufficient and provide vegetables from our own land.

    We want our children to experience other cultures like we have, and welcome cultural exchange in our home as we all love to meet new people with other backgrounds 😊

    We require that workaways staying with us must be vaccinated for Covid. Valid vaccination pass is a minimum requiremnt.

    We’re trying to maintain our farm building aged 1903. We also need to build a room for taking care of our beehives to be able to make our ecosystem more robust from spring time. And we want to build a greenhouse out of waste we’ve collected. We would like help with these projects and also other ideas we’re developing. at wintertime the tasks will vary from helping around the house (cleaning and tidying) to building projects in the barn-restoring it.
