  • Description



    We are a couple from Holland and own a little farm in the beautiful nature of Värmland, Sweden.
    We have horses, dogs, cats, chickens, parrots, 3 cows and 2 pigs.

    Our dream is to make a self sufficient farm, where we try to build a little Paradise :)
    We are building a new stable so now we need help with carpentry, making concrete floor, screwing, painting, chopping fire wood, garden work. We are looking for persons who are handy, like to build, have a flexible character, a positive mind, self initiative, are you able to fix some problems by yourself? Are you in good shape? Quick learning, social, and can handle some humor ;) ?

    Are you creative? Do you like to make things from wood?
    On a farm and in our projects is always something to do :)

    If you are interested, please contact us and ask about the possibilities!
    Enjoy in your free time the beautiful nature with various outdoor-activities like hiking, biking, canoeing, swimming, horseback riding, moose-safari/park, cycling on an old train track or just enjoy nature!

    Kind regards, Marcia & Dimitry
