    Dear travelers, we are a couple that have both travelled the world and now have settle to give passion to The Joy of growing. Growing in everyway.. Here in "little land" we found a tiny farm with lots of abundance and possibilities to be self-sustaining, Raffaella 32 from Sweden/Italy, that have her big love for growing veggies, medicinal plants and preserving things from nature. Been working as vegetarian cook True The years, and later on studied to become a garden master in biodynamic farming.
    Simon 39 Englishman is growing into The life on the countryside, becoming a handyman in everything he takes on, have travelled lots and lots. Simon is also musician and loves jamming with others. We are both old work-awayers and see this as a beautiful way of exchanging knowledge, passion and Great project such as art, music, handcraft, food nature and much more.

    Here we live in total nature with lots of forests, lakes, wild animals and what is called The glass kingdom. We have beautiful bigger towns in every direction and The sea with different Islands.
    Most of all we try to build up this forgotten little farm, with eatable trees, kitchen gardens, house renovations, making good food and try to live in harmony with less.
    As now we live with little Kiko, our street dog from Portugal, Our little puppie Orza that came to life here.. We have our two kittens and also our beautiful chickens..

    This summer we Will work on , create more
    kitchen gardens, medicinal garden, fixing up our cabin with old techniques. We Will also put our energy to picking and preserving berries and herbs.

    The farm has a big house, a cabin and a barn.. All of it is simple, in The wintertime we use woodburners for our heating. The toilet is an outside composting toilet. We have a poor excuse of a shower, its good because it uses little water, but a long soak is not possible. However we have a wonderful woodburning sauna and outdow shower summer time.
    you Will either stay in The cabin, that is super simple but old and charmy, or in our guestroom in The big house. Free spirits can stay in a hamock in The garden or in a tent.
