  • Description


    Hello! We are a family living just 30 minutes north of the city Bergen in Norway. We have a small farm with sheep , and in summertime we harvest the grass the old way. We have 5 children, all of the grown up now and left home. Our son and his wife and child of 4 years old live in the house next door, and we spend a lot of time together both socially and in work on the farm. We love having our grown up children and grandchildren visiting, and also our children's friends. Every summer we need help from young people to harvest the hey. We love music, we play, sing and conduct (Kristine is a choir conductor:-) ), and we love to get to know new people. We have a guesthouse on the farm for family visiting, and for others that wants to visit for shorter og longer time. We live on an island, so we are close to the sea. The community counts approximately 8000 inhabitants. The area is wonderful for hiking, and it is really easy to reach the big city for more restaurants, movies, concerts and so on. We speak English and German.

    We look for young people who would like to help us with harvesting the hay this summer. We also have a house that needs painting, and we need to put up a new fence for the sheep in a new area.
