  • Description

    Description

    We are Emma and Sven with our kids Simon born 2012 and Dennis born 2016. We are an active and efficient family that doesn't like to sit still.
    Here we live the year around. Emma runs a raspberrie farm in the summer season, works as a yoga instructor and is part time firefighter. Sven always have many projekts though all the buildings are very old. We are booth very active and we do some kind of training every day, (running, swimming our cykling)!

    Right now there is a few chickens. But they are the only animals on the farm.


    We live at an and old farm, where Sven has built the houses that we live in.

    Please write an application directed to us after you have read the information. The bulk mail applications is not something we like.

    You must have a valid visa for a stay in Sweden since we cannot assist you in getting one.

  • Accommodation

    Accommodation

    If you come when its off season, the accommodation is a new built spacious two floor apartment, with modern bathroom, underfloor heating and small kitchen. One double bed an one 160 cm bed. The flat is all yours when you are here.

    If you come in season the appartment is rented out and you got your own room and bathroom that we have made out in the old stable.

    If you like you can bring bedlinnen, towels and such. Otherwise we will provide that.

    We have small kids and the limited time we have with them after school before bed is sacred. Sometimes we spend time together after work but don't depend on it. We do go together all of us on some activities and try to show the surrounding areas and here is bicycles for your use.

    We have free internet.

    We are conscious eaters and mostly eat vegetarian food but meat from time to time.
    Sometimes we will eat together but be prepared to cook for yourself most of the times. You will always have breakfast for yourselves. We will keep the pantry filled with basic stock. We cannot provide a full vegan diet so that extra you have to provide yourself. Also we don't provide meat for your own meals.

    Most important is to bring good working clothes and shoes.
