  • Descripción


    We live on a 12 ha horse farm in Sjuntorp south of Trollhättan, just 45 minutes north of Gothenburg. Anne is a Clicker training instructor for horses, also a Natural hoof trimmer. Jan works as a IT consultant and is a SAAB-car enthusiast. We have a six year old daughter named Kajsa, and a four year old son, Mathias. We have 10+ horses, around 20 chicken, a dog and two cats as well.

    There are always projects going on: gardening, stable renovations, maintenance on the house and fence.
    There are plenty projects, we are open to your interests, experience, skills and knowledge, there are so many different things to do. It is important for us that you like your assignment, but off course there are some chores that need to be done everyday. The everyday chores are mainly taking care of the horses, chicken, helping in the house and the garden and walking the dog. We are also very happy if you want to play with the children and help with the everyday cooking dinner.

    We prefer non smokers to come stay with us.
    You need to be able to speak English/Dutch/Swedish good enough to understand instructions.
    You need to be physically able and fit, most of the chores are outside around the farm, with the horses and in the garden. If you do not enjoy working at all and more feel like a lazy teenager who wants to lay on the couch and work as little as possible, please do not apply. We welcome hardworking, entusiastic and helpfull people! <3

    Help from workawayers can be our only way to get away from home, to visit family or go on a short holiday. So sometimes we´d like to get help house-sittning and taking care of the animals so we have an opportunity to get away for a bit. Naturally, we will provide you with the contacts you need and we always have a backup plan in case something would happen. Let us know if this is a problem for you.

    Intercambio cultural y oportunidades de aprendizaje

    We like to share seasonal Swedish traditions, everything from traditional food to going to historic places. You will learn how to play hide and seek with two giggling kids. You will learn how to take care of horses and chicken and how the everyday-life is in Sweden.

    If you are staying for a longer period, Anne might be able to teach you some things about animal training using positive reinforcement/clicker training and hoof care. If you ask the right questions, you can learn alot.

    We love going on trips, but usually we are pretty busy (also during the weekends...), that´s why we need your help! :-) Some workawayers choose to go on trips by them self's during the days off, we will help you plan the trips and recommend places to go to if we cannot come with you.

    Depending on your interest, ability's and time of the year, we need help with plenty things: taking care of the horses, cleaning the house, fencing, gardening, building and maintenance, babysitting, painting...

    We expect you to be helpful, positive, flexible, independent helper and be a part of our family. Some days can be long, we work until the task is done. We expect everybody to help cook and clean the house.

    Most of the work around a farm is physically challenging. Make sure you are reasonably fit and let us know about any medical conditions in advance please! If you are allergic to cats/dogs we cannot host you.

    On the weekends there is time for trips to attractions, the city of Göteborg or Trollhättan, the seacoast with beautiful archipelago is 30-60 min away. You are welcome to use our car when we don´t need it, there is a bicycle you can use too. Sometimes we can come along, but usually we are very busy also in the weekends...

    Please do not expect to do any horseback riding, the horses are not suitable for riding because of different reasons such as being rescue horses or horses in professional training. We do have a very friendly Shetland pony that can be driven with a carriage behind.

    We are in the process of a lot of maintenance and building so if you have experience with such we will favor your profile. Carpenters are super welcome! :-)

    After several years of full time-hosting and trying different lengths, we prefer if you can stay for one month or more.

  • Alojamiento


    You will live in our guestroom in the house. There is a toilet upstairs next to your room, we share bathroom and kitchen downstairs.
    Sometimes sharing a room will be necessary depending on how many volounteers we accomodate. But usually we host one person at the time! (That also means you will be working alone when Jan and Anne are not there).

    We will provide you with basic food 7 days a week, you will buy your own snacks and other special dietary needs. We eat mainly vegetarian food. We expect you to do the same, if you cannot live without eating meat, this is not the right place to be :-) If you are picky about food, let us know in advance!

    We are always happy to taste new dishes and are excited if you like to share your cooking from home!

  • Algo más...

    Algo más...

    We live 45 minutes drive from Gothenburg, where there is an airport (Landvetter). There is a train stop 20 minutes from our place, we will pick you up at the train in Trollhättan. Please plan your travels taking the train, arriving late in the evening and leaving early in the morning can be difficult since we don´t live that close to the airport and usually cannot drive you there/pick you up.

    Please make sure you have adequate travel insurance especially if you come from outside the EU. If you have medical issues or physical disability´s, if there are any chores described above you cannot or really don´t want to do, please let us know in advance!

    Bring proper working cloths, boots and gloves for the time of the year. Winter can be nice and snowy, autumn and spring are usually mild and muddy. In summer time you never know, can be hot and dry, can be chilly and rainy, but the sunset is always beautiful on a nice day!

    If you are applying to several hosts at the same time, please let us know in your first message.
