We are a family living our life at an old farm house in Southern Sweden accompanied by a few hens, two horses a dog and a bunch of cats. The house needs restoration together with the barns and the big garden, we also need help in the household and occasionally with riding/ training our horses although they are usually away during the summer season. We're only two kilometer away from the closest beach, surrounded by beautiful farmland in a rural part of South East Skåne.
Please note that we may be lousy in replying to messages :( but we try to compensate by being pretty descent hosts :). If you don't get a reply back from us its only that we don't have our Workaway-radar on at that time, keep sending us requests we love getting them and will try to write back as good as we can.
You are especially welcome if you love and have some experience from wood work/ carpentry and a bit construction or if you love contemplating while thoroughly painting window frames.
DIY and building projects
Creating/ Cooking family meals
Help around the house
The answer lays in the question. To share ideas, work and meals with new acquaintances is all together an enriching and learning experience for everyone !
This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
General tasks include carpentry, building, painting, general maintenance and gardening.
Preferably we also need help with daily horse back riding (This is between October and May, during summer the horses are away),
Soon spring! and we need help planting the vegetable garden as well as some outdoor painting. If you're used to woodwork there is also need to restore old doors to the barns.
This years main objectives
- Repainting the windows and wood work
- Building a Orangery ! (We've got an old shack/tin-house that we'd like to rebuild into a winter garden)
- Refresh stable and workshop areas
There may also be assistance need for artists staying temporary at the farm.
