  • Description


    We recently bought a farm very close to Lysekil, on the West coast of Sweden. We are a family with three kids that are catching up on all the work that needs to be done. Painting barns. Fixing fences. Gardening. Looking after our sheep and chickens and maybe help out when we are colecting honey from our bees. We both work professionally, and the farm is our second work which reflects our love of nature and the outdoors. We hope people can join us to help us build our dream.

  • Help


    There are always things to do on a farm, so we hope our guests are be able to help with the things that we do not always get time to attempt. At the moment, we will be doing some renovations on our barn and house, and continuing with gardening projects. Most things, we will be able to get you started with, but its ideal if your able to work independently and with your own initiative.

    What else ...

    There are absolutely tonnes of things to do in Lysekil, which is a major coastal town in Sweden and very popular in the summer months for travelling Scandinavians. Good restaurants and bars are only a fifteen minute bicycle ride away as is snorkelling, swimming and a host of other cultural aspects of coastal life. A direct express bus goes to Gothenburg every hour.
