  • Description


    I am a woman, 51 years old. I live alone, while all my 4 children are grown and moved from home. This is a small farm which I bougt in 2019. I keep 45 sheep from the old norwegian breed, two icelandic horses, two cats and two dogs.The cats and the dogs live in the house as well.
    Because of the covid 19, I will prefer help from persons living in Norway, and even better in Troms. If you are vaccinated, I will accept you coming from abroad.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    You can learn a few things about the organic way of growing vegetables and keeping animals. You can learn how to make juices and jam from wild berries harvested in the forest and the mountains. This I do during Autumn. I try to be self-sufficient and study the teqniques of regenerative agriculture.

  • Help


    I would appreciate help in different ways, but I think especially help concerning carpentry and/or repairing buildings. This is an old farm with a lot of challenges regarding the buildings.
    I need help with fencing for the sheep, painting the barn.
    In May I would appreciate help with the sheep while they are having their lambs during May and the beginning of June.
    There is also quite a few things to do in the garden, preparing for the vegetables.

    Working on a farm is quite hard work, and you should be fit to work here.
