    Description

    Hello :) My name is Thomas. Born in 1987, and have an bachelor degree inn sosial health work. A few years ago, I bough the family farm after my grandmother past away. My goal was too bring life back into the farm. I now have the company of 1 dog, 1 cat, 4 roosters, 11 chicken, 4 guinea pigs, 6 ducks, 2 bunnies, 9 sheeps and 40 beehives.
    I live in an small small town, and there is only 6 houses at the end of the road where my house is. My parents are also one of the neighboars. And I have just bought two of the other houses that im renting out too friends. And my sister with her family has an cabin next to me by the lake. So its a family place, just as i like it :)

    My property, is my favorite place in the hole world. It is spaceies, has a good view, goes all the way down too the lake, has a big garden, a small forest, ant land where my sheeps goes. See photos :) my land is about 25 acre, so my chicken and ducks walk around free. No fences needed :)

    I have 2-3 days where I work from 8 am too 4 pm. The rest of my time I always spend at home. There is always something too do. It can be cutting gras, making firewood, giving animals food, fenceing, picking berries, painting buildings, walking the sheeps (yes, actually walking the sheeps outside theire fence) and so on.

    I have just finished remodoling my house inside, and building a new barn. But there is still some work to bee done outside.

    If you want to come here, you will live together with me in main house. I have two spare bedrooms in the second floor that you get for your self. The livingroom an kitchen is at first floor, with a nice view outlooking the lake. I bet you wil spend most of your time outside, as I normaly do. But I also have alot of bordgames we can play at night, tv, Playstation, and so on. There is okay fishing here, i have bikes you can use if you want to se more of the place, two kayak, my own fitnessroom and calistenics park.
