    Description

    Come a learn to maintain and restore a farm and take care of the animals at a free fall brewery in Vejle, Denmark. We are trying to preserve some old cultural heritage and you are invited to participate in that part of our life on the farm. We have been maintaining our farm according to older craftsman philosophes trying to use as many old techniques as possible and recycling as many old materials as possible. You will not be helping out on the actual brewery; we only put it forward because it shows how we think around here. We run a farmhouse brewery with one of the world’s only free fall gravity brewery. The brewery is situated at our farm in a beautiful hilly arear in Denmark.

    Meet the family: Casper loves to play and sing. He is also a brewer, engineer and skilled craftsman constructing, all kinds of DIY projects, Gitte is the beer creator, hiker and she also spends time on meditation. Sejer are currently building his own guitar when not attending high school and Ask have mowed from home but he will be here in July helping out. He studies computer Engineering and he play lots of Music.

    PROJECTS THIS SUMMER:
    This summer we will start maintainment of our windows with linseed oil paint and putty and we will lime the farm outside with old lime technique. Plus some repairing and isolation of parts of the buildings.
