    We are looking for someone to give us a hand in the daily tasks, helping with the animals or the general tasks at the farm, mostly together with our crew. Or inside with cleaning, cooking etc
    In wintertime we don’t have work outside on the fields, so we do work more inside, winter 2018 we are changing the house. The rooms need to be renovated, to change from sleeping room to office - so we have some painting, moving furneture to do.
    The crew is me and my husband and we have to employees. We «run the business» but we are happy to get help with our tasks. My husband need help outside and I need help in the household.
    We need help in the daily care with the animals; feeding them and clean up. We also need help with seasonal tasks like preparing for firingwood in winter, gardening in summer, cleaning machines. Assisting our crew.
    We have som old buildings from the hear 1700-1850. Here We have cafe in the summer, shop selling products from he farm etc. Here we need help to clean, gardening etc
    The volunteer need to be aware of that farming is not suitable for everybody - We work a lot outside in all kind of whether, We get dirty and We are living together with nature and the different times in the year. The days are always different.
    Easy tasks could be made by volunteers alone, but many tasks will be together with one in our crew.
