We, Margareta and Lasse, are living at a small bioorganic homestead in a very nice small village with ca 40 recidents. The farm is beatifully located by the lake Locknesjön/Lockne Lake, 35 km east from Östersund, Jämtland.
On the farm you find 4 horses, 2 dogs, 15 hens, 2 roasters and a happy couple with a lot of friends. The Lockne Lake is a big crater and have very clear and clean water. Sauna and boat by the lake.
We are interested in nature, nice people, gardening, horses, music, good healthy food (not vegetarians, but only eat meat from wild living animals). We both work fulltime/parttime in the town Östersund.
