We are a family with four boys, 3, 6, 8 and 9 years old. We have several different kind of animals - horses, sled dogs, cats, hens, pigs, ducks and goats. We live in the middle of the forest, 34 kilometers from a small town. We spend a lot of time outside; training the animals, fishing, walking in the forest, picking berries, fix things at the farm, build things, etc.
We like to make our own bread in our kitchen, hunt moose to get meat and pick berries ourself instead of buying everything at the supermarket.
All the month looks very different here, depends on what time of the year it is.
We prefere if people who arrives here will be able to stay at least 1 month.
