We are family of four; Valberg, Hanna and two sons, we are farmers and live in the West part of Iceland, close to Búðardalur. We have about 550 sheep, some horses, dog and cat. We also have three summerhouses that we rent out from May - September. Hanna is a teacher and works in the village four days a week. In May we have a lot of work, it is the lambing season and we need to prepare and take care of the accommodation. Therefore we need some help.
Help in the house
The lambing season is an amazing time. Over 900 lambs are born in 30 days. At this time it´s a very lively household at our place . Hanna´s and Valbergs´parents come to help as well as some other friends and family from time to time. Our guests (the tourists) are also welcome to visit the stables and many do. The nature is beautiful and we are living and working in the middle of it. All meals are provided and wage according to Icelandic union contracts.
This host offers accommodation and payment.
We are looking for help in the accommodation, cleaning and preparing for guests, wash linen and be around to assist our guests if needed. Help with taking care of the sheep and lambs.
Our workawayer will have a private room in our house and have all meals with the family. We do not expect our workawayer to do our housekeeping for us but take part in the family household as one of us.
