We are a couple farming goats in Norway. Jonas grew up in a cult in Sweden. No longer a cult member, he can tell you some crazy stories if you are interested. Gosia is an agronomist with extra focus on animal welfare. We enjoy company, arts, singing and creativity. Jonas plays ukulele and sings, Gosia paints, knits, weaves and does other grandma crafts.
The farm have several buildings that need maintaining or reconstruction. Most important this year is to fix the fences.
In the summer there is never ending supply of work that needs to be done, while winter is mostly just feeding the goats.
It's great if you love to cook! We always welcome somebody to do kitchen duty for everyone on the farm.
Jonas has two youtube channels. One deals with the aftermath of leaving a cult. It is also the platform he uses for his human rights activism. Politicians don't know how it is to grow up in a cult. But Jonas knows and someone must speak up for the children being brought up in cults closed environment.
