  • Description


    We're two generations living in two houses, just two tiny families, me and my daughter (6 yrs) in one house and my parents in the other house. We bought this small farm in march 2019 and we have several projects on out to-do list. We also have a wonderful garden with fruits, berries, flowers of all sorts. We have three horses, two sheep, two rabbits, one dogs and two cats. We need help maintaining the garden, painting houses, and other various jobs, mainly outdoor. We are very happy if our work awayers have basic skills in any kind of handy work but it´s nor required as long as you like to be outdoor! On out to-do list 2022:

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    Helpers can enjoy nature, spend time with our dogs, and perhaps our horses if they have interest. They can go for long walks or travel around a bit. Train and bus communication are okay, not the best but possible to use if you plan well. We are two generations staying in two houses next to each other. We like to meet people who enjoy nature, animals and kids and who know how to look after themselves. We are happy to spend time with helpers but we wont be able to "entertain" them all the time. The house is spacious so helpers can get their privacy or the company, as they prefer.
    Helpers need to be handy, physically fit and independent. We are happy to host a couple or two friends.
