We are a small family, running an ecological farm, located in a beautiful area 10 min from Bergen City center in Norway. Primarely we are a sheep farm, with focus on animal welfare. However, we also have horses and miniatyr horses (witch we use in terapi settings), goats, a dog, and smaller animals like rabbits and guinepigs. We live at the farm, and are looking for someone that would be interested in helping us with the animals aswell as traditional farmwork in general, eg: building, fencing etc... We are an outgoing family, friendly and hardworking. We are looking for people with the same caracters. We can offer an Apartment seperat from us to live in, general food and dining with us. There are many opertunities for exploring Norway close to our farm. Forexample; City 10 min, mountain tracks just outside the door, skiing and cabin life under one hour from here (Voss,Kvamskogen,etc...), and horse riding at the farm. We are located in rural area, at the sametime close to most attractions that surrounds Bergen. We hope that some of you guys will find this interesting,and we are looking forward to hear from you!! :)

Travellers would be part of a traditional Norwegian farm family. They would be able to take part in the various things that Norway has to offer. We are located sentrally. We have be en travelling alot ourselves and lived in different parts of the world. We are courious to get to know new people and other cultures. They will be able to gain knowledge about running a farm, ecologically, aswell as using animals in animal assisted therapy with people suffering from mental illnesses/challenges.
As a family we are both interested in mountain hiiking and cabin life. We do sports, and we spend most our time outdoor.
We would like help with animal care and farwork such as building, fencing, feeding, help with the gras, potatoes ect... knowledge about horses would be great, but is not a prerequisit. Same gods for knowledge about timber work, fencing etc... we will provide good instructions and learning for all work travellers take part in. Much of the farm work is seasional, while some of the everyday work is based on rutiner.

We have a small but cosy flat, with kitchen facilities, bedroom and bathroom. Travellers can eat dinner with us, and we will provid food for the rest of the meals that can be kept in the flat. Flat is suitable for a cuple or single person.
Train station is located 5 min from the farm. Train goes to bergen 6 min, Voss (skiing resort) 45 min, Oslo 7 hours. There are good buss conections, and we have several cars if we want to go somewhere together. There are fantastic hiiking possibilities just outside the door. This can be used either by foot, or by our horses. In walking distance from the farm, there are small rivers for salmonfishing.
