    On the farm there is always alot to do we mostly start working with fire wood and prepering the garden around april. after thats done we will work on buildings projects, opening up the forest, taking care of animals, picking berries and much more.

  • Accommodation

    Accommodation

    You can stay in our large 2 room caravan. or if you want/prefer to sleep in a tent, we have some tents you can use. Your also welcome to bring your own caravan/camper if you like.
    Its good to bring your own sleeping bag or blanket.

    -Be aware-
    Becouse we are in the begining of living off-grid we only have electricity when we turn on the generator (this may not be everyday).

    in the caravan there is 12V power so there you can charge usb devices like your phone when ever you want.

    there is no running water, all the water comes from a well, that means there is no modern shower but water can be warmed up on the stoof or taking a dip in the lake for a shower are great options ;) There will be 3 meals a day.
    We can all eat togeter, notice we are not vegetarian and meat, fish and eggs are a part of our daily meals. If you have special food needs its good to talk about that before.
