    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. o8

    Projects spring/summer 2021 we are looking for you that can help us with following skills/interests:

    x tearing down old bathroom, tearing down old betong floor
    x cooking
    x cleaning and structuring in the house. Home styling/tyding.
    x animal care of our 2 inside rescue bunnies and 3 cows/calves & 3 bulls + learning our smalest calve Anabel to be really tame by petting and talking with her.
    x Spending time with our 4 year old daugther and helping with the new born
    X gardening, seeding, harvesting, weeding.
    x Building projects like building sauna, painting, building water station for the cows, putting panels in guesthouse etc.
    x Are you good at social media, website etc we would love to get tips from you.

    OBS: from The 16th to the 19th of May 2021 are we looking for a housesitter that will stay with us the first days or week and learn the rutines at the farm and then take care of the farm while we are away for 3 days. So total stay for a week/two or longer.

    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.

    Off-course this can be different but a typical working day can look like this:
    We start at 9.30/10.00 am and continue until around 4 pm (including time for eating lunch). Our daughter is at daycare until around 2 pm. You or we together 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.

    For the most we have 1 to 2 Workawayers at a time for a duration of 10 days or longer.

    Me (39), my husband(45), our 4 year old daughter and our newborn baby from January 2021 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 are working with entertainment as circus artists, Cirque du soleil style and with dance and yoga.

    We appreciate that you use as natural products as possible, for example shampoo and soap and that you are conscious about not using too much water ( for example taking short showers and using little water when cleaning dishes etc. and if you are use to taking a shower every day, consider if you are ready to not doing that while staying with us )

    As we are respecting your situation as a traveller coming to unknown families and country, we expect from you to be respectful about our values and house-rules.

    It is good to bring with you:
    Gloves for working
    Clothes for working
    Shoes that is okay they get dirty while working

    We are looking forward hearing from you!
