  • Description

    Description

    We who live and farm the farm for 16 years, are Tommy and Kent. (a married gay couple) Tommy also works in the Healtcare and is away some days from the farm
    We carefully restored our old farmhouse built in 1842. We restores and opens up the village that grew again. In addition, we have the help of our animals, which are old Swedish lanterns. We preserve these breeds by catching on. gene banks. The animals also make us self-sufficient in meat. This year we will also grow up to grow some vegetables in a small vegetable garden. Hope the time is enough. We usually also milk some / some of the cows and try to make our own butter and cheese.

    We eat all food together and plan the day's work together.

    If you have a special diet, you can buy and cook it yourself or even find a suitable host that meets your needs


    WE HELP TO CLEAN IN PUBLIC SPACES AND DISHES AND COOK

    You clean your room during your stay and on departure



    we are looking for an electrician or and a carpenter ( not necessary)


    We look forward to meeting new Lbgt people but this is not a requirement

    What we want to help with is, among other things
    To paint the houses
    cobble
    Care animals
    Cut by
    Build new hills and fix the old ones
    Trap animals between the gardens
    höhantering
    renovate our old earth cellar
    Renovate and painting old Windows
    and an old timber building

    Yes, everything that belongs to the daily life of a farm.
    We have a pretty big hangover so it can pop up people here and then.
    Then we take a coffee and sing and play together.
    We also have a forest lake two kilometers from the farm, where there is really silence and one can really hear the silence. You can also swim there.
    In the courtyard there are several buildings:
    Two residential buildings that we renovate (one without modern standards, used to be used as a school)
    stable
    barn
    stolpbod
    hay barn
    threshing
    An old earthquake from 1852 (we need help to mura a bit so it is restored)
    Hot and cold water is available in the main house.

    We are social and nice love to talk building care and renovation, color and shape. About the animals and cultural history.
    To some extent politics (Tommy is active politically)
    We open up our home to you and think it will be fun to get to know you ...
    Welcome to the farm in a small Finnmark village!


    this year we choose to close our farm earlier due to bad experiences from volunteers who visited our farm

    Tommy and Kent

    ----

    Vi som bor på och brukar gården sedan 14 år tillbaka, är Tommy och Kent . ( vi är gifta) Tommy jobbar även inom vården och är borta vissa dagar från gården. i år 2021 söker vi Hbtq folk som vill förverkliga sin dröm att bo på landet men givetvis är alla välkomna med varsam hand vår gamla finngård byggd 1842. Vi restaurerar och öppnar även upp byn som vuxit igen. Till detta har vi hjälp av våra djur som är gamla svenska lantraser. Vi bevarar dessa raser genom att avla i sk. genbanker. Djuren gör också att vi är självförsörjande på kött. I år ska vi även föröka oss på att odla lite grönsaker i en liten köksträdgård. Hoppas tiden räcker till. Vi brukar också mjölka någon/några av korna och försöka oss på att göra eget smör och ost.
    Vi äter alla mål gemensamt och planerar dagens arbeten tillsammans. Det vi vill ha hjälp med är bl.a
    att måla husen
    snickra
    sköta djur
    kapa ved
    bygga nya hagar och laga de gamla
    valla djur mellan hagarna
    höhantering
    Ja allt som hör det dagliga livet till på en gård.
    Vi har ett ganska stort umgänge, så det kan dyka upp folk här då och då.
    Då tar vi en fika och sjunger och spelar tillsammans.
    Vi har även en skogstjärn två km från gården ,där råder det verkligen stillhet och man hör verkligen tystnaden Det går att bada där också.
    På gården finns flertalet byggnader:
    två bostadshus som vi renoverar (det ena utan modern standard, har förr även används som skola) en visthusbod
    stall
    ladugård
    stolpbod
    hölada
    tröskloge
    en gammal jordkällare från 1852 (som vi behöver hjälp att mura lite på så den blir återställd)


    Vi är sociala och trevliga älskar att prata byggnadsvård och renovering, färg och form. Om djuren och kulturhistoria.
    I viss mån politik (Tommy är aktiv politiskt)
    Vi öppnar upp vårt hem för er och tycker att det ska bli kul att lära känna er...
    Välkommen till gården i den lilla finnmarksbyn!
