    Description

    Thanks to everybody for this succesful year.
    We now have closed the farm for 2022 and welcome applications for 2023. next year.

    Background
    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.

    Activities
    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.

    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. Also talking by phone.
