we are musicians/farmers who have two small children (10 months/2 yrs). we care a lot about nature and biodiversity, we love when things look beautiful and we dream about developing this place into a resource for nature and people who come here and who live here.
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 right next to Dalälven river and there's a lot of birds around here. the place is quite "off", 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.

Help with Eco project
Help in the house
learn how to drive tractors, take care of farm land, help us with our kids, grow vegetables, feed animals and take care of the horses on site, build stuff and renovate old windows and furniture, make apple juice, collect mushrooms, build something nice. we love good conversations and are happy to show you around whenever possible. the place here is calm, QUIET, beautiful. only a few farms in the village all with beautiful big old houses.
we have a big farm here that we love and we want to share it with others. we grow vegetables, we have lots of fruit trees and berries to take care of, we have farm land to handle and buildings and a garden.
there are cats, chickens, 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 and are away for a few days sometimes which is why we need help with the farm so it's good if you like lone time and can take responsibility. we just turned an old barn into a concert place so we wish to arrange concerts and other fun stuff for our local community. the options and opportunities are nearly endless. we are curious to meet and learn from others!
There are a few options here, you are very welcome to have your own room upstairs in our wonderful house built in 1860, but if you prefer sheer solitude there are other options we can discuss.
The train to Stockholm City takes 1 hr 17 min from nearest train station (about 25 minutes), free bus rides in the whole municipality, there's also lots of beautiful nature to explore. österfärnebo national park with amazing canoeing is close and beautiful lakes and forests and rapids are right next to us.
