  • Descripción


    Hi, we are a young family of four in North West Iceland. Jon and I, Karen are 26 years old and have two sons. Sigursteinn, born in December 2017 and Þorsteinn born in August 2019. We run our own farm and Jón does other jobs some part of the year. Karen works in a kindergarten in our nearest village. We are looking for help with outdoor work on the farm and some housekeeping. We have around 500 sheep, one stable-cat, a border collie and 30 horses which are more a hobby thing.
    We live very close to the sea and have, no doubt, the most beautiful sunset in the bright summer nights! It's a bit far to the nearest town, Skagastrond, around 40 km but you get used to the distance.
    My husband is 100% Icelandic, but I am half Danish. My parents live on the next farm.
    We would love to host a Danish speaking person!
    We prefer to host workawayers who are able to stay 3 months or more :-)
    We pay wages to all our workers.

    As mentioned we prefer if workers could stay for 3 months or more. It takes time to adjust and learn how things work on new places :-).
    The work includes working on the farm and maybe a little housekeeping and cooking now and then. Regarding the farm work we we're thinking assistance with feeding sheep, which is mainly done by hand (carrying hay to the "feeding lines"). Keeping the stable clean, in May looking after the birth of lambs. In summer time (june-august) while the sheep are on the mountain we have to clean the stable for next winter, keep fences in good shape, harvest our fields (grass mainly) and more. Winter is a bit more off season if you could say so. The weather controles which outdoor projects you can do. But normally we don't feel like we are running out of projects. The sheep's are inside the stable so they have to be fed two times a day.
    Here I've tried to sum up the projects over the year on our farm but I'm for sure forgetting something. We are not requiring our work awayer to take care of all this on his own but if he/she is interested in helping we would be glad to have you.
    The housekeeping could be cooking a few times per week/month or vacuuming the floor.
    The working hours per day can be variable, depending on how much you would like to work.

  • Alojamiento


    Staying with the family. We can provide a room for our workers. We would eat all together. Unfortunately we can't offer a separate toilet/restroom or television. We live in a big house with two floors. It's around 240 m2 so there is room enough for everyone. We are slowly working on fixing/reconstructing the house so there are 2 big bedrooms which are not in use at the moment.

    Algo más...

    There are some hot springs not that far away. River rafting about 100 km away from us. In Autumn there are wild blueberries close to the farm. Seals like to lie up on rocks very close to our farm when the weather is nice. Especially in spring and Autumn. We don't smoke and don't want smoking inside the house. We have a good internet connection.
