    Description

    Welcome to our farm

    We are a family of five,
    Daniel 35
    Mai 33
    Charlie 8
    Lili 6
    Rosa 4

    If you stay with us, you are not just an enthusiastic helper, you are a guest of the family. It is important to us, that you have a nice stay here, and we would love to learn about your home and culture. We will show you around our part of the country when time allows it, and we'll tell you where its nice to go and explore on your own, if you'd like.

    We are a small scale organic farm (3,5ha). It is run as a part time self-sufficiency project, where we try to find our own little niche in farming. We've had sheep, pigs, geese, ducks, rabbits and a flock of free range chickens. Right now we have our most prominent resident, the cat Rene Dif, chickens, ducks, quails and rabbits.

    We have been traveling as workaway'ers ourselves. Gathering experience and inspiration for new projects on our farm. That means a lot of exciting projects ahead. We put a lot of energy into the vegetable garden. Handling firewood and general maintenance and updating the buildings and garden will, as always, be important.

    Another huge project will be our B&B housewagon. When complete, our workaway guests will have a fantastic place to stay.
    Please note, that until the wagon is complete, workaway guests will sleep in a "camplet" (Tentwagon).
    Bathroom is shared with our family. You are welcome to join us for three daily meals.

    We wish to experiment with poly dome and tunnel.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We are in most ways a typical danish family. We used to live in the city, but decided to move to the countryside to raise our kids sorrounded by nature and animals. To show them where their food comes from and help them appreciate nature as we do. We hope to share our lives with interesting people from arround the world, and teach our kids (and ourselves) that people have diffrent customs and look and speak different around the world.
    Mai works from her home office and Daniel works part time in the city.
