  • Description


    We are a family, three grown ups, living at a small farm with our horses, some sheep, chicken, cats and dogs.
    My husband and I do have full-time jobs while our daughter still is studying.
    Our house as well as the barn was built in the beginning of 19th century, so there is always some renovation to do.
    Next year we also plan to renew parts of the enclosures for our sheep and horses.
    Since last year I also started with a little gardening project.
