    We are a hobby farm, but I own part of a commercial farm, You will not be involved in the work of the commercial farm. For that we have paid workers. Including me it's 3 paid workers. Youre chores will be generally help on the hobby farm. Paint Jobs and Woodcutting. Help will depend on the weather. No housework whatsoever, other than keeping youre own flat tidy. We are moving our lifestock onto an area were they are no fences during the summer, so we are often spending time in the beautiful nature looking for our lifestock.

    The different between the work of the commercial farm and hobby farm is basicly very simple because it's two different places. You will be joining us on something that will include a little bit both, but that is social events like herding. That is voulenteer help on a norwegian farm.
