We are a family with four boys, 5, 7, 9 and 10 years old. We have several different kind of animals - 3 horses, 17 sled dogs, 1 cat, 26 hens, 3 lambs, 4 pigs and 3 goats.
We live in the middle of the forest, 34 kilometers from a small town called Lycksele. We spend a lot of time outside; training the animals, fishing, walking in the forest, picking berries in the autumn, fix things at the farm, build things, saw wood, 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. We also make cinemon rolls, muffins and pie and sell to people.
We have a saw and likes to cut some of our trees down in the forest and make wood that we can build things with.
All the month looks very different here, depends on what time of the year it is.
We prefer if workawayers who arrives here will be able to stay at least 1 month.
