  • Description


    This is a country property with 5 hectares of agricultural and marginal land. Here nine ewes and their offspring and a varying number of hens graze the beautiful rocky and lake area.
    The house is old and in constant need of repairs and maintenance.

    Kajsa (20) (student) and Sys (73) (former nurse and public health worker) and Kalle (labradoodle) and Carlo (ratkiller) are the permanent residents here. But the work with sheep, chickens and other work is shared by the family who live elsewhere on Bornholm.

    We would like to have 3-4 workawayers for the last 14 days in June to help with various practical work outdoors (mostly) and indoors.

    Bornholm is an island in the Baltic Sea, with a diverse and peaceful nature. From the soft landscape with wonderful beaches in the south to the hilly landscape and rough cliffs in the north.
