  • Help


    We need help with growing vegetables, taking care of the animals. fencing, cutting, drying and packing hay for the sheep (hesjing) and more. We would love it if you like to make food as we have plenty of great ingredients, but not enough time. We slaughter our own animals, and eat them (not the cats - yet).

    If you know how to build stuff, that would be perfect, as we have many plans for our small farm.

    We need held for about two weeks to start with, can not offer several months Just yet.
