  • Description


    This farm is located in the heart of Värmland, between Karlstad, Arvika and Sunne. Around us, there are a variety of beautiful lakes and forests to explore.
    Our big vision is to have a tree park with different species in the park, we will promote the natural wildlife by having a lot of dead wood and other vital habitats for insects and birds. We graft our apple trees to have our apple orchards. Every year we plant vegetables. We have our bees, to get honey. Some lambs to get meat.
    With us, we have small-scale breeding of the Icelandic horse, they go on the loose and earned at 3-4 years of age.
    We have chickens for self-catering.

    One day can for example include planting, painting, taking care of animals and children, cooking, and construction projects. On a normal day, we work between 9 am-3 pm. We adapt to your ability and knowledge.
    We eat all meals together and help each other in the kitchen. If we are four adults at the farm, everyone will cook every fours evening, that evening are you also responsible for cleaning up in the kitchen.

    We who also live on the farm are Sara and Peter and our sons Vilgot and Arvid, and also three cats.
    In autumn 2022 Peter and Sara are working, so you need to be self-propelled to some extent.
    Peters's interest is in playing different kinds of music and gardenwork, and Sara's interest is to be in nature and work with the horses.
    We prefer persons that are 23+.
    Welcome to join us!
