There is an opening for a workawayer from now on and forward.
I am a woman who runs a small farm in the countryside. On the farm there are horses, sheep, hens/chickens and some small animals - and two dogs.
I work with children/adolecents visiting the farm and they stay for the weekends and holidays. There are also children from the neighbourhood visiting. You must be comfortable working alongside children/youth. They are here on holiday and I/we do some actvities with them. Everything from working on the farm, playing cards and watching films - and having a rest. My main work is with them, but as usual all the animals and chores on the farm needs to be done. We will either do them togheter or separetely. Hope you like to work independantly.
There will be chores like:
*️️️️️️️️ go in the forest to look for the sheep
*️️️️️️️️ putting up/taking down fences
*️️️️️️️ taking away grass and do wood in the forest
*️ picking berries/fruit, making jam
*️️️️️️️️ feeding/watering horses and other stuff with horses
*️ taking care of other animals
*️️️️️️️️ painting of fences
*️️️️️️️️ being with the children
*️️️️️️️️ cooking, like making breakfast/lunch/dinner
*️ some help in the house
*️ painting walls inside the house
and whatever comes up.
On a farm like this it's always something to do for everybody and things of interest for most people.
There are not a lot of other people around. My parents live nearby and my brothers with their families. The nearest city is 7km away and there are busses. You will have a bed either in my living-room or a separat bedroom and you will share bathroom with the others in the house. You will be a part of the family.
Some farm experience or work with animals would be appreciated. You need to be able to work independantly once given a task. And have good English language. You must love the outdoors and like to work with your body.
I need someone who is open minded and respectful and are willing to help where ever they can. On a farm like this it's always something to do. Worktime is different during the day, but you will have plenty of time off.
Hope to hear from you!

Help in the house
You will be a part of the familiy. You will learn about the normal day in a family on a small farm in Norway. You will also learn about different animals and how they are kept. We will have some good time talking togheter around meals and hopefully learn about each others contries and dayli life.
I need general help caring for all the animals and different chores on the farm like; fencing, painting, mucking out, filling water, moving animals, some work in the forest moving fallen trees, washing and cleaning out in the stable and sheepshed.
