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, 2 dogs, 5 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.
DIY and building projects
Creating/ Cooking family meals
Help around the house
You will learn a lot about animals, farming life, routines and things that suddenly happens. Being a part of the working team and working alone.
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 :)
We have a big room over our stable where you will sleep and can rest if you need a break. All meals will be in our house around our big table. Most of the time we are more than 4 people around the table.
Cleaning of your accommodation and the shared facilities is expected as a part of the team.
