    Description

    We are a couple in our sixties running an organic farm with vegetables and berries. The cultivating area is 4 ha with greenhouse and open fields. We have a dog and a cat. We are grateful to get a helping hand and we can give you experience about organic cultivating. Our farm is situated in the area of beautiful Bergslagen where you will have the opportunity to wandering in the forest or go canoeing. You will stay in our caravan with an outhouse privy and make your own breakfast and lunch, of course we´ll support you with food. We will have dinner together in the evening. Sometimes, if you´re not a couple, you will share the caravan with another volunteer. We are very grateful if you can help us 5 hours a day, 5 days a week. We are also very happy if you can stay at least 2 weeks and that you are not a smoker.
    We still need some help this summer.
    Very welcome to Brunnstorp!
    Madeleine and Martin

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    There is a bus stop very close to the farm (3 minutes walk) and a train station 20 minutes walk from the farm (where we also can pic you up). Nice nature around the corner for wandering etc. You can go swimming in the river, about 200m from the house. 1,5 km from the farm you can go horseback riding on Iceland horses, but you have to pay the costs for that yourself.
    We try to live as sustainable as possible, eat our own food as much as possible. We don´t eat meat but fish sometimes. We work hard in the summer season and rest a lot in the winter while we are happy to work with textile (Madeleine), paint and play music (Martin). We have had volunteers here during the summer season for about ten years, one or two at the time. We´ve got so much help during the years and a lot of great and lovely memories!
