  • Description

    Description

    We are Irène and Rolf, owners of this beautiful place. We have been doing organic farming for many years (even permaculture) and have always tried to produce as much of our own vegetables ourselves.
    We bought this farm four years ago when we took the major steps to really listen to our dreams and desires to start an activity, where sustainability and the good of of man and nature are central.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We think it's important (for many reasons) to gather around a meal, so we will daily eat a large meal together. You make your own breakfast and snacks (we of course provide the food). Basic housekeeping and cooking the main meal for all of us is scheduled, this means that you need to have a fairly good knowledge about cooking!
    We are not overly strict when it comes to alcohol but we do not allow excessive consumption. Smoking is only permitted outside the house.

    This year the exciting work will continue - of turning a farm out of crop into a life-giving, inspiring and totally organic place where both man and nature will thrive and prosper. And we need your help!
    The farm is 7 hectares with fields and curly birch tree cultures and a big garden.
    We keep bees and we have a lovely dog and chickens.

    The most important work this year is to make a bigger vegetable garden, planting, transplant and move bushes and other plants, weeding and watering, continue painting of barns etc. In addition to that there are still spaces that needs to be cleared, chopping wood etc.
    We are constantly experimenting and right now we're trying to grow plants in deep beds of wood chips, this summer will be exiting!
    Much variation and exciting work for all of us.
