    *️️️Urgent help needed from 14-31 of july. Our beds limited so good if you travel in a motorhome or accept a simple living in a tent*️️️

    A small scale organic farm on less then 4ha, in a beautiful area surrounded by looming forests and exceptional nature. This is our second year on the farm so things are still growing and developing. So bare in mind that things can be a little messy but we put alot of work and effort to personalize our place and fix all that needs to be done to make this our home and farm that will provide us with food and all that we need in life.

    We mainly produce veggies and other produce for our own needs but our aim is to be selling the surplus and in time even produce for markets and such. We use our wool from our sheeps to make diferents products and preparating the skins, also here mainly for our own needs but in time for selling. When time is right we also make arts and crafts. This year there's alot in the garden like preparing beds for next year, digging and weeding. We also plan some construction projects, i.e. renovate our earthcellar and change the roof on the guesthouse. Also fencemaking with Salix around the garden and other shores around the other outhouses. The main house also needs some digging around and to prepare a herbgarden. And in a couple of days we are getting bees! Other than that we have chickens, sheeps and cats, (only the cats live with us in our home). At the moment we are maintaining our garden and our greenhouses with vegetables. We are also about to start with our fence around the garden. There are also beds that we will soon begin to prepare and our herbgarden beside our house. We also intend to finnish the establishment of a farm shop.

    We are, Filip who besides the farm work part-time at a Waldorf pre-school. With alot of energy and ambition, working on several projects and always have something new in sight. Also big interest in handcraft, plans (if theres time) to build a forge this year. And Ann, the artist and painter who at the moment is at home taking care of our less then a year old son Eli. Ann's two older girls, Engla and Norah, also live with us but part-time, they are 11 and 13 years old. We see ourselfs as open-minded and positive people with a urge to connect and share our wordly beauty with others like-minded. We are eager to learn new things and to develope as inviduals and as humans.

    The farm is our heart and we intend to live and be self sustained out of it. We would love to have other people to share it with, to be part of our amazing journey and explore the human experience together! We live in an area with beautiful nature surrounding our farm. There are also lakes for swimming and exceptional forests! While here why not taking a hike on one of the trails in one (of many) of the nature reserves that you find close to our place. We live in the countryside, and there is almost an hour ride to the nearest city of Örebro. A beautiful city with many bars, resturants, shops and what not. Unfortunately there is limited transportation to get there but nothing we cant arrange.

    We have a guesthouse that could at the moment accommodate atleast 2 people with a shared space. It is simple but have what you need. Because we have a composting latrin there is an outhouse connected to both houses. Shower we have in the main house. We eat all meals together, and take turn cooking. We keep a diverse diet manly vegetarian but a few times a year we eat our own meat and chicken. We look for you who can work hard and not be afraid to get dirt on your hands but also rest and have a good time enjoying nature, others company and life. We rather see that you have past experience and possible know a bit or two about farming . Tell us something of yourself and Why you want to come to us! Cant wait to meet you, sincerely. Filip and Ann with family
