  • Description


    Recently moved to an old, neglected farm with my two teenage kids. We know that we lack experience and knowledge but we are learning and step by step trying to get things done. There are many tasks, much to fix and problems to be resolved so we get the opportunity to have a lot of practice. 🙃 We want to be more self sufficient and here we have the possibility to achieve that goal.

    It is a beautiful place with forests were we pick a variety of berries and mushrooms. The view of the river is lovely, and as it is just a few steps away, it is easy to go fishing or take a swim.
    We have some animals who also will give us food to eat.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Possible to see how it works to live on the countryside in Northern Sweden, the challenge and the blessing.
    Living in the well-known world heritage area visited by lots of nature loving tourists. The most popular places to visit in the High Coast of Sweden are Skule Mountain, Skuleskogen National Park, and the islands Ulvön and Trysunda.
    The High Coast of Sweden is considered to be excellent for hiking and has been cited as one of the best hiking regions in Sweden.
    There's of course other places that deserve a visit; Salusand - a lovely beach which sometimes has big waves loved by surfers, Paradiset - an indoor water park and spa, Skagsudde lighthouse, Gene fornby - a reconstructed Iron age settlement and many more.

    We are a family who bought a homestead last summer. For now it is a non-commercial farm, so what we produce is mainly for our own consumption.
    Carpentry, renovating (old houses!), slaughter, farming, gardening, cooking, cleaning, animal care, tidy up outside, cut trees, shovelling snow, well most everything could be nice to get some help with.
    It is good if you sometimes are able to work on your own when we are away at work and school.
    Have a great need of an electrician and/or carpenter.
    We would prefer workawayers above the age of 25.

    Always had an interest in language and culture. Had friends from different countries and backgrounds who taught me some of their language and traditions.

  • Accommodation


    Can offer a small room in our house (all year round) or a caravan (only during summer). You will basically live with us and share bathroom and kitchen. Therefore very important that we get along well. You can cook and eat with us if you want to. We try to make things work as smooth as possible.
    No smoking indoors!

    Trains and buses are available but a bit far away to walk. An airport is also available some kilometres away.
