  • Description


    We're two generations living in two houses, just two tiny families, me and my daughter (3 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 dogs and three cats. Of course we prefer if our work awayers like to walk the dogs and help out with the horses but it also not required .

    We would need to do a big gardening job and we would love to have preferable two people for this job for maybe two weeks. It’s a magical garden with a large variety of plants and flowers but it’s a little too wild. We’d love to host someone who knows something about gardening and can help us sort it out a bit, but previous knowledge in gardening is not required.

    We also plan on making some new fences for the horses, and also a wooden fence around the garden. We plan to do a big clear out of all kinds of rubbish laying around the farm houses and also some painting of the farm houses need to be done . All projects will be outdoor projects and most of them physical. We prefer to host two people together and for shorter stays, approx. two weeks at a time.

    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.
