    Description

    We are a family living at our farm only 25 min from the city of Tromsø. Our children are born in 07-08.

    We have 70 sheeps, 3 dogs, 4 horses at our own and totally 19 at the stable, and some small animals. The summer of 2016, we opened a cathotell.
    Anders is an full time farmer and June work beside the farm, and it would be great with some helping hands and a smiling positiv person.

    Help

    We always have some building projects and a lot of different task that is needed to be done

    The work is quite diverse on the farm, and a workaway guest could help us with such thing as taking care of the animals:
    Feed the sheeps and look after them when they get lambs (in May).
    Move the sheeps up in the mountain for their summer stay (in late June).
    Working in our cathotel every morning and evening (all year, specially holidays)
    Collect the sheeps in the mountain and bring them back to the farm (in September).
    Feed the horses and clean the stables.
    Harvesting gras for production of hey and other field work.
    And of course many other things that has to be done on a farm.

    We would be very happy for some help :)
