  • Description

    Description

    We are a family of four, (mum, dad, 10 year old daughter and 8 year old son), living on a hobby farm in the woods in the south of Sweden. We would like to develop the farm but struggle with finding the time. There are a lot of projects running or possible to start up, depending of your skills and interest. We love animals and for the moment we have cows, sheep, hens, turkeys, rabbits, ducks, cats and dogs. We also have bees and produce honey. In a big pond we have crayfish. We are self-sufficient in meat and are producing some of the most common vegetables. We are very much into dog training and agility, and we have our own training hall with artificial grass. In town we have a rehabilitation and healthcare center for dogs.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    The farm is situated 20 km from nearest town, and there are no communications other than by car. You can follow us to town someday, or lend a bicycle, but you need to like the silence and the woods to be happy here. The open areas are quite small and mainly used for pasture. There are a lot of lakes in the area and the nature is beautiful. You need to be independent and be able to work by yourself or with other workers.
