  • Description

    Description

    Hej!
    We are a family of three generations who lives on the countryside near the nationalpark of Tiveden and we are located near the northern end of Lake Vättern.

    On our farm we have 20 - 30 sheep and lambs, 4 goats, ducks, dogs and a cat.
    We live in a very beautiful nature with old forest and wildlife around us. We have also lot of lakes in the area.

    To be a volunteer here, you have to like nature and animals. No metropolitan pulse here :D

    Every day look different, and your help will depend on the weather and your abilities.
