  • Description


    We are a family of three generations who lives in the countryside near the Nationalpark of Tiveden and we are located near the northern end of Lake Vättern.

    On our farms, we have 20 sheep and 20 lambs, sometimes ducks, chickens, rabbits. Two old horses. We have also dogs and cats.
    We live in a very beautiful nature with old forest and wildlife around us. We have also a 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 looks different, and your help and work will depend on the weather and your abilities.
