  • Description


    We live in little farm with 70 sheep, 3 small mascot goats, 2 horses , chickens, ducks, a dog and a cat.
    This beautiful island is surrounded by fjords and only 35 minutes from Bergen.

    Now it is me and my husband on the farm, our 3 grown-up children have moved out.
    We rent our old farmhouses to tourists. We sometimes have weekend/holiday activities for children with troubled background.

    From March to June: We need help with small restoring, painting houses, cleaning houses for the tourist season, feeding animals.
    In July/August we can only have ww for 1-2 weeks when its time to harvest and dry the grass, because the houses are filled up with tourists. Then you have a room with private bathroom in our house.

    We would allso be very happy to have a carpenter to help with our mountain cottage, or someone that can handle a chainsaw, to clear forest in a pasture area near the farm.
