  • Description

    Description

    We are a couple that run a visiting farm open for tourists, setting up an exciting experience farm park with many different kinds of farm animals: cows, ponies, goats, sheep, pigs, rabbits, chickens, ducks, geese, turkeys, donkeys, dogs, cats and also some guinea pigs and peacocks.
    Her, in the park, we want to give visitors a fun and different experience. Instead of having all animals in cages and enclosures, where you just look and walk past, we focus on providing our guests closer and fun interaction with domestic and child-friendly animals who would like to be feed, stroked and played with.
    Even though the animals are the main attraction of the park, we have also built a playground with several outdoor and indoor places for play and made many activity opportunities for children and adults as well as great facilities for picnic, fun and relaxation.

    As additional activities, we organize pony trekking tours and tractor wagon tours and in high season, we provide rabbit jump competition and Chihuahua dog show as well.

    There is our goal to make it COZY, FUN and DIFFERENT and we have focused on simplicity, intimacy and homemade, the uniqueness and fun.

    For many families become the place a popular destination with several hours fly away by in the original, child-friendly atmosphere in very beautiful nature surroundings.
    There is also a farm holiday house for rent on our farm.

    We are very pleased to see people come repeatedly and we try to continue to improve the place and looking for exciting new products each year.

    Help

    There are many different tasks here at our place. We expect you to love animals and to be handy and to be able to help with animal care, some experience with horses will be good..
    It could be a big variation of work, sometimes also cleaning, some things need to be maintained or maybe garden need refreshment and grass need to cut down and so on…
    If you stay with us we can arrange that both we and you can cook at times depending on if you like doing it.
    We are also renovating our house so you can help if you like it.The 5 hours is max. but the 5 hours can be really intense in high season!

    We are looking for open minded, hardworking, engaged, happy people who like nature, animals, children, like to meet people, are polite and smiling with tourists, like to make fun and are not afraid for manual work on the farm. We like to have a good energy in the house where everyone can be open with ideas and opinions.

    We need volunteers in the period 1 April – 30 October (other months can be discussed) and we prefer you to stay for a longer period, so you can learn to know all animals and the routines of the farm.
    If you feel yourself as a part of a family, you might stay as long as possible and return as much as you wish.

    Being a part of a family that consist of us two and our “little children” that also live with us in the house: 3 chihuahua dogs that are really sweet and can many tricks – driving little motorcycles, ATV and train, playing “mother and baby” – really a lot of fun for tourists, especially children!
