I am a pensionist farmer with about 50 sheep, for company and to keep me occupied. My farm is in the beautiful place named Steigen. We have fantastic nature. Besides the help on the little hobbyfarm we have many possibillities to go hiking, fishing, boating or using the farm and its machinery. I am living alone, so I have lots of place and normally a spare car too.
In the spring we have to cut the wool and pay attention when the lambs are born. Then the sheep get transportet to an island by boat. Its october when the are retrieved. Besides hobbyfarm help I am seeing forward to diskussions about potitics, live an anything else.
Feel free to ask for more information.
Help around the house
While living i one house with me you will learn all about the norvegian language, the traditional food, the politics and the social system in Norway. We are going to live together as a family doing nearly everything together. I would love to diskuss the diffreences between our countries. You get to know the nature by foot and by boat and you are getting to know more people in Steigen. There will be people from the region helping at the hobby farm too. We will share the house, prepare the meals togesther and we will have a lot of time to talk.
You will learn a lot about sheep. I only have 50 now while I used to have 250 when I was younger. Now I have the sheep for company and to keep me occupied.
I need a little help with the sheep. Feeding, lambhelp, transportation to the island for the summer season. While the sheep are on the island you can see after the house and the dog if I am away for some days.
I will be offering food and accomodation.
I have a big farmhouse, so there is enough room. You might get a car and a boat for free use.
Nearest airport is Bodø (BOD), from there you can take the speedboat to Helnesund or the bus to various destinations in Steigen. I will pick you up there.
