  • Description

    Description

    We are a dutch family in Sweden; 3adults and 4 children. We live on 7 hectare farmland, where we have horses, sheep, chickens, dogs and a cat.

    We like to grow our own vegetables in the permaculture way; we try to be partially self sufficient.

    All farm activities are hobby, but have self sufficiency as a goal. We are a Swedish 'familjehem'; which means we take care of children that can no longer live with their biological parents. We now have a boy in the age of 10, a girl in the age of 4 and a 1year old baby girl living with us.

    Since we moved here in 2010, we have renovated the old farm, but there is still lots of work to do. We spend a lot of time hard working on the farm, but when we take a break, we like to; go canoeing, kayaking, walking the dogs, long walk in the forest, snowshoe hike, cross country skiing, ride a wagon behind a horse, indoor climbing/bouldering on our self built wall, practising survival skills, etc.

    There is always a lot of work here, we don't have work pressure, but we expect hard workers.

    In the spring firewood & gardening is a lot of work, in the summer harvesting the hay is a lot of work.

    Building and maintenance we do all year round.
