  • Description

    Description

    We are a family of two human adults, one dog, four cats, two sheep, two goats, three chickens and three pigs.

    For everyone safety, we have decided only to host people who are vaccinated.
    Please state in your message if you are :)

    From december to end of april we will NOT have any workawayers. But in end of april 2022 we will start it again.
    So if you are looking for a host 2022 know that we accept people from april and onward :)

    We recently moved to a farm with our adopted animals on the west coast of Sweden, close to the boarder of Norway. Our dream here is to start a vegan B&B, have an animal sanctuary, grow our own fruits and vegetables and to rent out our barn for parties.

    We were getting married in august here at home in our barn but because of the virus we had to postpone it. But we still need help to fix the barn to make it wedding ready for when the time is right to tie the knot. We also need help with taking care of the animals, gardening, carpentry, painting the main house and also some cleaning inside the main house. We also need help with fixing the small cabin we have on our land that will later be the vegan B&B. We also need help with building a fence for the animals and building small houses for them.

    A regular day at the farm:

    Your main job here will be to take care of the animals. So in the morning you will let the chickens, sheep and goats out of their pens. Check their pens, fill up food and water. Then feed pigs and give them water.

    After that breakfast. We share kitchen here and you are free to use everything in the kitchen.

    After that the work day usually start. Depending on what projects we have at the moment it could be anything from gardening, digging, building, cleaning, painting etc.

    You get to decide for yourself on when you start to work and when you wanna have a day off. We dont have a strict rule on when you should work :)

    Lunch is whenever people are hungry and usually contains leftovers or what ever you feel like. Dinners we always have together.

    Around 7 at night it's time to feed the pigs and fill up water. After that it's time to take sheep and goats into their pen and close up to the chickens.

    That's a typical day here at the farm :)

    Here we serve vegan food for everyone who comes to work for us :) If you enjoy cooking then we love to try when workawayers cook meals for everyone aswell.

    Time is important to us and we very much appriciate that IF you are coming to us to keep us uptaded with travel information and if anything changes with time and dates for your arrival :)
