  • Description


    We are a german family based on Bornholm island. Our kids are 9, 6 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.
    There are two guinea pigs, lots of wild cats, birds, rabbits and deers.

    We are looking for some loving hands to help around the farm like small restoration and repairing, painting, cleaning.
    The most important thing for us is a peaceful, child friendly attitude.

    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.
    We have a bus station nearby, so it’s also possible to explore Bornholm by bus and bike. You are welcome to use our bike.

  • Help


    We need some help around the farm, like small renovation, painting and building projects and preparing for winter. Also some gardening. We need to plant many trees soon also.
    You should be willing to work physically with your hands in the ground and dirt on your body ;)

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

    You will have a self contained, independent farm stay, so please be sure that it’s ok for you, that we don’t offer a high communicated exchange. We will meet of course from time to time (and I am sure our kids will be interested in you!!), but private space is also very important for us.

    You will have your own trailer/ caravan for your own private space with toilette, water, a basic kitchen, oven and sea view ;)

    PLEASE NOTE: Private space is super important for one of our kids, that’s why our family time at the table will be private. As a compensation, we only expect 3 hours of work / day from you.
