  • Description


    We are a family of four: mother Sofie, father Casper, big brother Sebastian at the age of 3 years, and little sister Emily at the age of 8 months.
    Our farm is located in scenic surroundings near Herning.
    Our farm is interesting for you who like animals, nature, children, and to be on a farm, but near a big city at the same time.

    You can help us with following: rebuild the house, take care of the animals: we have a lot of ducks, rabbits, some boars, and other funny animals like chickens, geese, and pea cocks. Every day we feed the animals and make sure that they have dry and good conditions.

    We would like to welcome you who is positive and flexible with the tasks.
    We prefer that you don't smoke.

  • Help


    Animal care:
    Feeding, gathering eggs, scattering straw, feeding hay, picking grass for the rabbits and ducks, mold out, lime barn, improve the areas of the animals. We are open to new ideas that will simplify everyday work with the animals.

    Help us weed, prune fruit trees and generally keep the yard areas neat and tidy.

    Play with Emily when she is awake and needs attention.

    Most of your help will go to the animals. We look forward to welcoming you to our farm, Lille Bredkær. You can visit our Facebook page Lille Bredkær to see videos and photos of the farm.

    Food: We will make large portions, so there is enough food for everyone. If you are interested in cooking, you are very welcome to help with the cooking. We use many ingredients from the farm, including meat, vegetables, eggs and fruit.
