  • Help


    The help needed here is various. Like carpentery and building. Painting. Work with wood. Gardening. Planting seeds. Cleaning weed in the growings. Normal household work. Riding and training horses. Feeding and carying for animals ( sometimes kids too)
    The work depends in season and also wht most important for the moment. So sometimes there is much work and sometimes less.
    There is not very close to lakes here unfortunately. In summer the kids want to swim all the time...
    To go to a swim lake we must take the car. There is small lake close here but just for fishing.
    But there is other things here, lovely forests with berries and mushrooms. Much wild animals too.
    Its beautiful nature, still close to city. . Offcourse i work with u together here in the farm too. Just come along and spend time with me and my family and friends.
    Help in kitchen work would also be great.
