  • Description


    There are no problems with living in quarantine with us.

    We are a couple in the 50's that lives in an old house with mainly wood heating.

    Our property is 4 acres and contains lawn and some cropeland, fruit trees and berry bushes.

    We wish to develop our growing of vegetables, fruit and berries to be self sufficient.

    We practice organic cultivation of vegetables and herbs. We make things out of driftwood, sewing, painting and other things that we need. We are creative and we are constantly finding new things to do.

    We have chickens and cats.

    We have a boat, enjoy outdoor activities like fishing. There are beaches, 1 km from the house. We live in a rural setting, 2 kilometers to the nearest shop.

    We also like to go fishing, sunbading, relax, read and watch movies.

    Workawayers live in their own house due to the quarantine rules
