  • Description

    Description

    Small farm without any farming since the land is rented out, but the forest is maintained by me. Also have a vegetable garden and berry bushes and lots of machines like tractors, ATV, snowmobile etc.
    I have 2 sons that are visiting regularly.

    Help can be gardening, carpentry, painting houses, general house work or forest work. Also might need mechanical help with machines. Have a boy at 10 years age, so maybe need help watching him some times.

    The farm is close to the small town of Namsos, and close to the forest, mountains with lakes and the salmon river Namsen

    We also have two cabins that sometimes need some maintenance. One is located on the mountain in Lierne and one on a small island in the Namsenfjord. If maintenance is needed there, we go there together.

    Our local small airport is Namsos (osy), regional (some international) is Trondheim 160 km away (trd) and main international is Oslo 700km away (osl).
    You can also get here by train from Oslo or Trondheim to Steinkjer and then bus from there to Namsos.

    Please feel free to contact me!
