  • Description


    Hej, we are a farm located in Värmland Sweden!

    !Right now we are in need of Workawayers, we have added ourselves to the last minute hosts. So if you are searching for a place very soon, don't hesitate to write us a message!

    In 2017 Johan bought a farm with surrounding lands and forest, located close to a lake. It was his vision to build up a village where people work together in an organic and sustainable way. The community has been growing for the past five years and we are now focusing on becoming self sustainable.

    Now we are 3 people living on the farm and about 5 more people involved in the farm and living nearby and even the first children are born. We always have short term Workawayers with us and we love to introduce others to our lifestyle and our way of farming. We hope that what you learn here inspires you to build your own projects.

    If you are interested in really experiencing more aspects of living on a farm, then we would love to have a chat! If you have any particular skills with animals, building, or marketing we would love to know, as it is something we are in need of right now.

    We grow our own vegetables, have a permaculture garden, we have 120 chickens and 4 ducks (for now), and a few building projects. This year we have started to grow grain. Many projects are going on at the same time on our big farm.

    We are engaged in a healthy, conscious lifestyle and have a great network of communities in Värmland. In our free time we enjoy nature, sauna, dancing and visit or are visited by friends and other eco-projects. We cook for each other in turns and we always eat dinner together. We do not have any internet access available.

    Current projects:

    Current projects: Start 2023!
    In the garden: prepping for the preseeding times, doing seed inventory.
    Building: Installing a new central heating system, saving the tree house, finishing the dome and perhaps starting the build of a new solar electrical system.
    Maintenance: We have forever maintenance to do on our farm.Taking care of machines.
    Helping us with marketing and social media. Wood cutting for winter. And general building projects.

    Let us know if you are interested to join our project!
    We are looking forward to hearing from you!

    We have 2 single rooms and a larger room for 2 people, two caravans, a bus with 6 beds and endless camping possibility.
    For winter time, we mostly just provide the 3 rooms that can be comfortably heated, if you would still be interested in staying at one of our caravans, let us know. The only place available for people with pets is our garden caravan though, seeing as some people on the farm are allergic, so pets cannot stay in the main house.
