Me (Nils) and Astrid live an hour south of Stockholm on an estate owned by my parents. We still have part-time jobs in Stockholm but are looking to spend more time on the estate and fulfil our self-sufficient dream with more home grown food and more animals, meaning expand the gardens, renovate some of the buildings, and getting more animals (i.e cows and chickens to start with).
DIY and building projects
Help with Eco Projects
On our journey we are looking to learn from you and together with you, the art of farming, animal care, sustainable living and building/carpentry. Our knowledge is still basic. You will have great impact on the major decision of what to do with our land and together we are looking to move further towards self-sufficiency. We both work part-time in Stockholm but are looking to spend more time on our land. In the future, we are looking to create some kind of business of our land and it would be an honour to have someone from the outside help us form that, if willing. We love different cultures and travelling and hence would love to have meals regularly with you.
Me (Nils) and my wife Astrid live on the countryside home into a more self-sufficient estate foodwise and need help reaching our dream of eco living with own meat, home-grown veggies etc. Simultaneously, some of the buildings are in need of renovation in order to reach this goal. Our knowledge is fairly basic in this area and we need an extra pair of hands and brains for the work that needs to be done.
We are still working on an exact accommodation but it will be comfortable, heated and access to your own kitchen and internet. Probably in one of our charming red signature wooden houses dating from the 18th century.
We will contribute with grocery shopping and join us for dinner from time to time. You will also have the pleasure of eating our wild game meat butchered by myself (Nils) :).
Located only one hour from Stockholm and 15-20 minutes from other smaller cities, we will always help you with transportation to these places from time to time. In the immediate surroundings the nature has beautiful lakes, enchanted forests and great roads for the biker. You can join us hunting and fishing now and then as well.
