  • Description


    We are a family of two adults, three small kids, two cats and a dog. Our place is quite private on the countryside about 50 km from Gothenburg. We do forestry in small scale mostly for firewood. This year we started to grow some vegetables in our field and also got our first chickens. There is always something to do taking care of everything in our small farm and when it starts to slow down we usually start a new projekt. We love the outdoor and being out with the kids on our property letting them play and explore is something we do on a daily basis.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    The nature around our place is beautiful with mixed cropland, forest and lakes. It is plenty of wildlife with for example deer, moose, wild boar, foxes and capercaillie. This gives good opportunities for hiking and exploring.

    I would say we are a quite typical Swedish family and you will be part of this during your stay, also giving us the opportunity to know a little more about your life.

    You will be able to learn more about small scale farming, countryside life, children and of course Swedish culture. We always try to take you with us (if you want to ofcourse) in everything that we do!

  • Help


    Some examples of what we need help with:
    Cooking dinner and other every day activities
    Paint the houses
    Renovating an old kitchen sofa
    Fix up our old chicken coop
    Making firewood
    Playing with the kids

    We will definitely come up with more things to do and we are not saying everyone needs to do everything.

  • Accommodation


    We have a isolated outbuilding close to the house that you will have all to your self. It has a nice sofa bed and we have had good responses so far from other workawayers living there. Toilet and kitchen you will share with us in the house. If you have ideas of how to make it even cosier for you when you are here, with the means that we have, you are welcome to do it!

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    On weekdays Robbin are working and Sofia is home with the kids. During this pandemic we unfortunately have to limit trips to Gothenburg but it is nice to go to Alingsås which is a cheerful small town with many coffee houses. To get there you can take the bus or go with Robbin when he leaves for work.

    Because we have small children we do not accept smokers.
