  • Description


    We are a family with three young children. I am a half-Time-working mom and my husband i.e. self-employed. We live in a beautiful little house with an extra cottage and trailer. We have a dog and four horses, 3 sheep, 2 rabbits some chicken and 2 cats and some thousand honeybees. There is a rather big property with huge meadows and forest around it- especially the lake near by is wonderful to look at! Take a look on YouTube, "Tillsammans-ridterapi"!

    We are searching for a person who is open minded, encouraged to help in different areas and someone who wants get to know more about the "Swedish" way of living in the country.
    We need help with animal care (4 horses, 3 piggs, 3 sheeps, 3 rabbits and some chicken), making firewood, children entertainment, painting, building, work in the forest and housecleaning...........
    This winter we will need help with building projects on our house and a forest project. We would like to see if you have experiences with horses, so we can use the horse for working with the forest project. But you don't need to.
    Your work will depend on the weather and your abilities!
    A lot of small and big things has to be done at the farm so we really need you to be flexible, quick thinking, take own initiatives and to understand either Swedish, German or English good. The children (7 and twins 5 years old) speak Swedish, German, body language and are learning English. :-)
    P.S: We would like you to come with your own car. I'm working with a high-risk person for Covid-19. Thats why we don't won't you to travel with collective traffic.

    Sweden is known for a lot of forest and lakes, and that is also what you will encounter when you are with us. The scenery is really beautyful with the lovely forest and the lake to canoe on.
    The old military "fortress" in Karlsborg as a historic monument , the nationalpark "Tiveden" and the "Göta kanal" are near by and worth a visit.
