  • Description


    We are a german family based on Bornholm island since 2019. Our kids are 9, 7 and 3. We are homeschoolers by heart and moved to Denmark to live a slow, peaceful life in nature.
    The farm is from 1900 with nearly blank barns and wild fields. So our place is full of projects all the time.

    We speak german at home and are busy and highly interested to learn more danish.

    We are looking for some loving hands to help around the farm like small restoration and repairing, painting, cleaning and gardening.
    Besides that, we also search for someone, who is looking for a longer stay, like a few months to get a trustful and meaningful connection with the kids.

    The most important thing for us is a peaceful, child friendly attitude <3

    You can learn some german if you like. You will also find a lot of slow living and hygge on the island. Besides there are a lot of possibilities to do sports like hiking, swimming, surfing, mountainbiking and so on. The nearest beach is 20 minutes by feet from us and we have gorgeous little towns around the farm as Gudhjem and Allinge. Bornholm is very slow and the best place to calm down and relax. We have a bus station nearby, so it’s also possible to explore Bornholm by bus and bike.

  • Help


    We need some help around the farm, like small renovation, painting and building, also some gardening.
    You should be willing to work physically with your hands in the ground and dirt on your body ;)

    If you click with our kids, childcare could also be a task for you.
    But as we are homeschoolers, our kids will be around you often anyways :)

    Please let us know, what you are interested in, so we will find some work that fits for both of us.
