  • Description

    Description

    For the future, we are looking for someone to share the house with, long term. Then we speak about also share the general costs, like power and internet, rubbish and similar. They do have to be positive to workawayers :-)

    We are a family of 2 persons living on a small organic farm in Norway. We have a lot of projects going on here (restoring the house, building up an organic garden, tending to our chickens and cats, etc.), and would love some help any time, really! We offer a free place to stay and 3 meals a day if you're willing to help out with the daily workload and chores around here, in addition to the various projects that come up. Right now we are working on to fullfill the chicken house project. We need a good chicken pen with a roof because we guess the curfew for chickens will come again next spring caused by the annoying bird flu.
    We need people that can use a saw, hammer and nails and also are handy in other building skills.

    To be in our family can lead to everything, from normal house chores when you live in a family to things that suddenly pop up. We also like to give friends and family a hand :-)

    By the way, it's not too early to contact us regarding next year :)

    We had some experience now, telling us that workawayers from outside the Schengen area need to have a working holiday visa in order to be permitted to do workaway in Norway. To work with children and other care professions you need a certificate of criminal record, and you still have to take this document to the Norwegian police to see if they can fix a Norwegian one for you.

    And last, but not least: When we have agreed to you coming here, it's a good idea to send us a copy of your working holiday visa. We are required to check it...
