  • Description


    Edit info due to Corona situation in Norway:
    If you arrive from outside of Norway you have to be in a 10 days quarantine. This does not mean isolation. It means that you have to stay at the same address during this time. You will be able to stay at the farm during this time, being able to work and having your free time there and even use and walk in the nature that is just a few steps outside the house. The rules are that you can not be seen in public, like going to restaurants or taking public transportations etc.
    On the farm you will even live seperate from those already living there in a cozy small apartment.

    Hello, my name is Sigurd. I'm 29 years old and from Norway. For the past 13 years i have lived abroad, but now I'm back because I'm taking over my family farm. It's located outside the small city Brumunddal, 1,5 h north from Oslo and only 45 minutes south from Lillehammer. It's a fairytail world out here with the best of what the norwegian nature can give you. My house is the most charming house in the area and its close to the lake Mjøsa, rivers, city and forests. I'm very chilled and living for the moment, being grateful for what life is offering me.
    I will have several projects in the future, but for now I need mostly help with taking care of the animals. I have one horse and two ponys at the farm, that has not had animals in 30 years. Two cats and one dog. Some help with building/maintenance is needed and there are so much things that could be done in creative ways, and together I think it would be a lot of fun, just seeing what you can do. No pressure if you can't do everything.

    The farm has a very big house. Cleaning and cooking is also interesting but I think we can have a good talk about what suits you and we can find a good balance for your stay. Other small jobs will probably be popping up too.
    People I have in my life, I always make sure it's for a good reason for the both of us, and we will probably have some good time getting to know eachother, and I'm happy to show how Norways is from this part, and it's even good for me, not being here for 13 years :)

    I'm always happy to share my general knowledge, language and whatever I can provide as a Norwegian. As I'm also back after many years, I would be very happy to go and see different tourist stuff, locally or to do fun trips a bit further away.

    Two options:

    My house, the most cozy house and you will have your own room or you can share with a friend. When you enter my house you will always be my guest, regardless if you are staying for work. There will be breakfast, dinner and more. I will not sit and eat this by myself. You are welcome to join or if you would like to do it different, you are welcome too. There is coffee in the house, from what the typical Norwegian drinks, to arabic and greek coffee too. I love mornings and coffee is a first thing for me. I prefer dinner at 4:20 pm sometimes. If you don't thats perfectly fine too :-)

    The farm. In a seperate apartment, super cozy too. My super cute welcoming parents live there and they will make sure that you feel comfy in whatever way that suits you.
