  • Description


    ****Unfortunately I made a mistake and forgot to pause the profile. That's why such a high response time. Of course, I will respond to every message in a short time now that the profile is active again.****

    I'm Ecki and I emigrated from Germany a few years ago to bring a small farm back to life here in Sweden.

    There are many projects that all contribute to this, from building various small projects to growing vegetables to building an animal population.

    There is a lot to do and i'm are grateful for help, whether on the construction site, in the garden or around the house, there is always something to do. I would also be happy to receive help in the IT area.

    Now in winter there are of course not many construction projects, but there is a lot of snow and other challenges that have to be overcome in winter.

    The farm is about halfway between Hammerdal and Ramsele and is located directly in the forest by a lake. It's very quiet where I live and you're really in the middle of nature here.
    The source of income is tourism, not the farm itself, which is why I, as a private individual, am looking for support.

    Ich bin Ecki und ich bin vor ein paar Jahren aus Deutschland ausgewandert um hier in Schweden einen kleinen Bauernhof wieder zum Leben zu erwecken.

    Es gibt viele Projekte, die alle dazu beitragen, vom Bau verschiedener kleiner Projekte über den Gemüseanbau bis hin zum Aufbau einer Tierpopulation.

    Es gibt viel zu tun und ich bin dankbar für Hilfe, ob auf der Baustelle, im Garten oder rund ums Haus, es gibt immer etwas zu tun. Auch im IT-Bereich freuen ich mich über Hilfe.

    Jetzt im Winter gibt es natürlich nicht viele Bauprojekte, dafür jede menge Schnee und andere Herausforderungen die es im Winter zu bewältigen gibt,

    Die Farm ungefähr auf halber Strecke zwischen Hammerdal und Ramsele und liegt direkt im Wald an einem See. Bei mir ist es sehr ruhig und man ist hier wirklich mitten in der Natur.
    Die Einnahmequelle ist der Tourismus, nicht der Bauernhof an sich, weshalb ich als Privatperson Unterstützung suche.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    I'm happy to share my experiences of emigrating to Sweden, as well as our experiences of living here in the north.
    You can learn a lot from the construction projects because i do everything self. I also like to share my experiences in growing fruit and vegetables, especially here in the north, after all i live north of the 63rd parallel, which can make cultivation very exciting.

    What else ...

    Our farm is located on the edge of a small village (25 inhabitants) in the middle of the Swedish wilderness. The next shop is about 30 minutes away. It is a very quiet place that invites you to spend a lot of time in nature. So if you are looking for action and raging city life, you are not at the right place with us.

    Can possibly accept pets

    Pets are welcome here. However, I have to point out to dog owners that they are required to be kept on a leash in Sweden and they are also required to be kept on a leash on farms. Unfortunately, I had bad experiences, including one of my sheep being killed by one of our guests' dogs running loose. Therefore, I welcome pets, but please be careful.
