  • Description


    I have a beautiful farm here at Selbu...close to a big lake where you can swim, fish and canoeing in the summertime. In the wintertime there is a nice aria for skiing. Here I am living with my husband and animals.
    We have 60 sheep, a special breed - called "VILLSAU" - ore wild sheepThey stay outdoor all year round, even when it is minus 25. We have also 6 goats and som hens, two cats and a dog. We grow vegetables and berries.
    When you stay here you live (more or less) as part of the family -and eat dinner with us , but have your own room or log cabin where you live.
    We work together on the farm and you will work about 5-7 hours a day , but with weekends off .
    We are a couple who lives here, ( 53 years and 63 years)
    I have 4 children - which is not living home anymore , but much visit and people stop by all the time. The farm is beautifully situated by the sea and we have boats and canoes available . Beautiful scenery and mountain areas we have.
    You also get bike at their disposal and opportunities for accommodation in Trondheim -if you want to go on a city tour .
    We ned help to building fences, harvest vegetables, feed sheep and goats, carpentering, wood, gras in the summer, painting - and so on......
    The work starts the latest at 9am. We eat lunch at around 12 -til 1pm.
    If you are addicted to internett - this is not the place for you. Sorry!
    We don't aksept drogs
    We would prefer someone who can stay here for a longer time , maybe up to one year .

    Jeg har en vakker gård her ved Selbusjøen. Gården trenger hele tiden arbeidskraft til maling, snekkering, vedarbeide, rydding og forefallende gårdsarbeide..
    Du lever som en del av familien og spiser med oss, men har ditt eget rom eller tømmerhytte hvor du bor.
    Vi arbeider sammen på gården og du vil arbeide ca 5- 7 timer om dag, men med fri i helgene.
    Vi er et ektepar som bor og lever her. (53 år og 63 år) Vi har 4 barn som ikke bor hjemme lengre, men mye besøk og folk innom Gården ligger vakkert til ved sjøen og vi har en båt og en kano til disposisjon. Nydelig natur og fjellområder har vi også.
    Du får også sykkel til disposisjon og muligheter for overnatting i Trondheim -hvis du vil dra på bytur.
    Vi ønsker helst noen som kan bo her over lengre tid, kanskje opptil ett år.
