  • Description

    Description

    We have many different projects at our farm, both inside and outside. It is important for us to have people that like and even love what they are helping with here. We expect from you that you only apply if you like the type of tasks and set up we can offer here.

    2020 we are looking for people that can help with one or more of the following skills/interests:

    x Building

    x Gardening
    x Structuring / Home Styling / Tidying (inside and outside projects)
    x Cooking / Cleaning
    X spending time with our animals ( 2 inside bunnies / 4 cowes + 2 calves)

    We have a large garden / a small forest and fields therefore we want people who enjoy doing outdoor work and have an appreciation for nature.

    In October and November the tasks will be making the garden and green house ready for winter, repairing and setting up a new fence for the cows/bull. Cleaning the cows "bed" with machine and by hand and putting a new one for the winter season. Project with firewood for the winter. Renovating in the house. Helping with daily tasks, cleaning and cooking/time with the animals. So a lot of outside work.

    Most of the physical demanding projects will be working together with Timo.

    Off-course this can be different but a typical working day can look like this:
    We start at 10.00 am and continue until 4 pm (including time for eating lunch). Our daughter is at daycare until around 4 pm. We cook so that the dinner is ready around 5.30pm/6 pm. Then our daughter have her sleeping routine from 6.30 pm / 7 pm.
    My husband and I have had quite loose routines in our lives before but our daughter have learned us a lot about the benefits of routines so now we are in the process of implementing it to our lives in a healthy way.

    For the most we have 1 to 2 Workawayers at a time for maximum 1 week. Sometimes 2 weeks.
    OBS: in October and November we are looking for Workawayers that want to stay for a duration of 1 week or less.

    Me (38), my husband(44) and our 4 year old daughter (and we have a second child on its way, coming in the beginning of the new year, 2020) are open-minded people learning from the different mindset and livestyle we are living and enjoying living at the countryside after living many years in the big cities Copenhagen, Stockholm and Helsinki. We have our 2 rescue bunnies that are living inside with us and our cows/calves & bull outside that like to be petted.


    We are looking forward hearing from you!

    Naja & Timo

    We have a lot of space for car & campervan parking.

    We have fast internet.

We are born in Denmark and Finland and have a beautiful farm in Kristianstad Municipality in a little town called Årröd.

Experience an alternative/progressive way of living. Possibility to get a close connection with the animals on the farm.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    We are surrounded by nature. A good place if you like to be outside in the nature and garden, go for walks, meditate. The neighbours are about 300 meters from us so it is calm here.

    There is a local bus 2-3 km from us that goes to Malmö/Kristianstad. It takes about 30 min to Kristianstad and 1 hour and 20 min to Malmö.

    We have bikes to borrow. The nearest town with a few stores is 7,5/8 km away/ a little cafe 7 km away as well. You can drive with us when we are going to town or go by bike.
