  • Description

    Description

    we are musicians/farmers who have two small children (1,5 year/3 yrs). we care a lot about nature and biodiversity, we love when things look beautiful and we dream about turning our spot on earth to a vivid place with some great respect for our nature and give room rest work and joy for people who live here and who come to visit.

    we live in a small village in the southern part of the region Dalarna (the valleys) where our farm is one out of 6 in total. we're close to Dalälven river and there's a lot of birds around here. the place is quite far away from any city or light pollution so the night sky is great and it's quiet and serene. but there's also a lot going on, always. we work hard and are quite energetic people.

    we have a big farm here that we love and we want to share it with others. we grow vegetables, mainly for ourselves to enjoy, we have lots of fruit trees and berries to take care of, we have big farm land to handle and buildings and a garden to tend and use.

    there are cats, chickens, sheep, small children, apple trees and horses at the site that crave attention and love if that's something you’re into.

    we work as musicians our income based work and our work life is not always routine friendly, for better and for worse. periodically we are away for a few days sometimes which is why we need help with the farm so it's good also if you like lone time and can take good responsibility while we’re away.

    We just turned an old barn into a concert place where we arrange concerts in the summer and perhaps also some other fun stuff for our local community. the options and opportunities are nearly endless. we are curious to meet and learn from others!

    We're looking for some help in the household to keep the everyday life running smooth :) Help with cooking is much appreciated, and depending on the season there are different types of outdoor tasks that we would love to have some help with.

    this is a little bit of what we're doing project wise spring/summer 2020

    * renovating windows and outdoor furniture
    * renovating a tractor trailer
    * building a fence
    * clearing bushes - neverending ;)
    * building a new stage for the concert barn
    * preparing the fields and the farm land
    * washing cleaning caring for all the farming equipment
    * sowing, planting, preparing the vegetable garden
