    I am running a small organic farm on the Island of Föglö, belonging to the Aland Islands between Sweden and Finland. I have 4 horses, a very friendly dog, chicken, rabbits and bees. I have some fields for the horses, I grow hay and I have a garden for vegetables, fruit trees and berries. To the family belongs me, Karin, who is a former riding-teacher, nowadays just staying at home because of my reuma, my daughter Viola, 24, building a house on a farm nearby, and 3 grown-up sons, sometimes visiting me.
    I play folksmusic on the violin.

    The surroundings are beautiful and quiet, the people living here love the nature, fishing and hunting. We have ferries connecting to east and west.

    For now I am looking for someone to stay at the farm for the month of May. You need to be responsibel, used to take care of animals, not afraid of gardening, fencing a.s.o. I can not teach you everything about the animals in one month, you need to have some experience! In evenings /weekends you will be able to explore our Island! One of my sons and his big family are on Föglö, they live on a big farm with milking cows, also my daughter Viola lives nearby on her farm, she has two shetlandponies she is training. You will be able to visit them and see their places. Unfortunately it will not be possibel to ride my horses, they are beeing trained for competitions and are sensitive or young.
    The farm is in the middle of nature, the weather in Spring might be anything between +5 and rain to +20 and sunshine. Ecological lifestyle -woodenheated house, trying not to waiste our resources more than necessary.
    I also have a beautiful wooden boat, Doris, used for fishing and excursions.
    May is one of the most beautiful time of years here on Föglö. The grass is turning green, the air is still fresh, the water is deep blue. But it is also a busy time -the garden and the greenhouses and the horsefields need a lot of attention, we will compete some horses and I also play a lot of folksmusic with my group in Mariehamn,
    Please contact me if you think you are the right person! I am looking for one person, not a couple or a family. It is not possible to stay longer than to 31.5 because I need the cottage for tourists during the Summer.
