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.
We learn a lot from our volunteers from around the world and love also travelling ourselves - often to warmer latitudes during winter.
I work mainly with land, forest issues and with the old buildings.
My wife Madeleine works with antique/second hand shop and renovating old things. As you know there is also a lot of other things to do on a farm as you can see on listing and references. We dont have any children on site.
We like outdoors - hiking, fishing, boating, hunting, sauna, hottub, bbq or just to enjoy the quietness, watch 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.
