  • Description


    We bought our farm in 2011 and are in the process of building up the farm with sheep breeding, forestry and trophy hunting. We are a family of 2 adults, and 4 children from 5 to 16 years of age.

    We are looking for a person that loves spending time with children, who thrives in the rural areas and enjoys spending time in nature. Mainly, we need someone to prepare the children for school and kindergarden, and to do easy housework. There is also possibilities for some farm work, maintenance work, and gardening. We are looking for someone who can stay with us for a period of two months or longer, arriving approximately 15th of April.
    The working hours will vary from day to day, but we will not make you work more than 25 hours a week :-)
