    We collect apples manually, in every weather, every day, for 2 months.
    Do except some long days, but fair amount of work,
    We take a lot of cozy breaks as well (google: hygge)

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    The island is an amazing place. Its very isolated (being an island and all) and therefore there will be a lot of time to enjoy yourself. Around 500 people lives on the island, so its a good place to sing out loud with nobody hearing you, and to explore the beautiful nature around you.

    Denmark is a bicycle country, and we will of course supply you with bikes so you can bicycle all around the island.
