  • Description


    Hello !

    We are open for 1-2 female applicants in May.
    We already have 2 male volunteers on site.
    We take corona precautions accordingly.

    We acquired the farm 2010 and have together with volunteers fixed, developed it in an eco friendly way, creating, upgrading and having lots of fun. Some have returned 1-3 times and some became long stayers. We try to balance origin, interests and genders.

    Tor works mainly with land, forest issues and with the old buildings
    Madeleine works with antique renovating old things and fixing/furnishing inside.
    There is a diversity of projects, tasks and daily routines to do as you can see on listing and references.

    We like outdoors - hiking, fishing, boating, hunting, sauna, hottub, bbq or just to enjoy the
    wilderness, quietness, northern lights etc

    Once a week we go to Ostersund, the main city of the province of Jamtland, for groceries, shopping, events etc

    You reach the city of Ostersund by car, train, bus or air that is all on the Internet.

    Häggenås is our pickup point a 40 min bus ride north of Östersund.

    Please give a comprehensive description so we get a good feeling for you.
