Welcome to Thorslykke a small eco farm in the middle of Jutland. We live two families at the farm: One family (the owner of the property) in the main house, and one family in a new build Tiny House. Our five kids are in the age 6 to 12 years old. We all value organic, sustainable solutions very high and love to do the garden, making eco projects, cooking and enjoying outdoor living.
DIY and building projects
Help with Eco Projects
This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
You can be part of a family trying to be more self-sufficient, and learn a lot about permaculture gardening and building a eco friendly life. We rent out shelter and tent spaces during the summer, therefor you can look forward to meeting other visitors and gusts during your stay.
We have a lot of outdoor project, where we would enjoy extra help. We have established a big permaculture garden, it needs frequently to be looked after. But we would also need help for the other outdoor areas: garden, planting trees, maintaining green areas, fences, painting, small building projects, collecting herbs, etc. Some of your task could also be to take care of our animals (sheeps, chickens, pigs, cows) and contribute to the everyday life like cleaning and cooking.
You will have you private space in a caravan with acces to an outhouse compost seperation toilet. Currently the shower is in the main house.
You will make your own breakfast, and most of the days lunch as well. We eat dinner together most days prepared by us or you (cooking skills not necessary, if you dont like to cook - we will just do it. But it is important, that you can make your own food if we are not at home)
We will provide you with the food you need during your stay. Most foods are from our own farm: both meats and vegetables. If you don't eat meet, it is no problem. We love vegetables.
We can welcome two people at the time, and prioritise people traveling together as you will share the caravan.
We hope to get visitors that are truly interested and committed to working with eco projects. Maybe you have farming knowledge or building skills your self, and we can exchange ideas and knowledge. We are very much open to your good ideas. As you can see practical skills are important at our farm, so please describe yours to us.
We hope you like to be social with us, but also loves your private time.
We have the most beautiful forests around us, with lovely lakes for swimming. There are a 15 minutes walk to the bus, that goes to the nearby big city Silkeborg with lots of shopping possibilities. Some days it can be arranged you can borrow a car.
