We are now looking for someone who can help us out from December ´22 or January 2023. Preferably someone who can handle horses but that is not a ´must´. We have two horses who need to be taken out in the morning and back into the stables in the evening.
Both for the Spring and Summer of 2023 but also for Fall and Winter after that we are looking for some good and socially skilled workers to our nice farm in Sörmland. We are specifically looking for someone who knows how to handle horses for Fall and Winter.
Anyone can send a request because we need volunteers for longer and shorter (at least three to four weeks) periods. We are looking forward to read your requests and hopefully we meet this year!
Peter and Hans run a small organic farm in Södermanland, just an hour south of Stockholm. We grow vegetables for our own use and have animals to take care of. We have sheep, goats, two horses, three small cows, chickens a dog and two cats.

We love to exchange cultures and many different cultures meet at our farm. In the evenings we socialize, play games, have dinner and talk.
It would be great if you know how to handle horses, although this is not a must. There will be many other tasks, mainly in the greenhouse and vegetable field. Welcome!
We are specifically looking for a person who can be with us for a longer period of time during Fall and Winter. This person needs to be able to handle horses.
We live on a small organic farm with vegetables and animals. We grow tomato and chiliplants and produce vegetables. Our animals are protected Swedish breeds. We have sheep, goats, chicken, horses and cows. And of course our chocolate labrador Rosso and some cats. We are looking for enthusiastic people who like a laugh but also know how to work and get some things done. We usually have a lot of fun working together. You don´t need to have any experience in farm work but you should be interested and have your interest in farming in focus.
You will be joined by one or two other volunteers from all over the world. (not if you are Winter-volunteering, then you're ´stuck´ with just us :))
You will stay in a comfortable place near the barn with a shower, toilet and wifi-internet.
And of course you will get the experience on a small farm in a beautiful landscape and our company.
We are not professional farmers, this has more or less become a very large hobby, and to make ends meet we work regular jobs. But we work on the farm during high season. On weekdays you might be by yourself with the other volunteer(s).
We try to have set routines and a working day of about 5 hours:
While breakfast is prepared someone else does the morning routines in the stables and fields.
We eat together and talk about what needs to be done and how we devide the chores.
The rutines with the animals include feeding the animals, change their water and make sure all is well.
At a farm it happens very often that it is not possible to stick to the routines, that counts for us as well :)
We are always busy taking care of the animals. Early Spring we start seeding the plants in our basements. In the beginning the plants grow under lights. When they are big enough we move them to one of the greenhouses. In Spring and Summer we are mainly taking care of the lambs (from March), seeding, potting and re-potting, weeding, weed-wacking, watering, cleaning, and fixing fences and fields. But also some construction and carpentry.
In July and August we do seeding of vegetables, weeding, harvesting etc. Lots of work on the vegetable patch. We grow potatoes, corn, leek, unions, beans, beets, peas, cucumbers, pumpkins etc.
Cleaning the stables to prepare for the rest of the year and Winter is also a thing that needs to be done at the end of Summer. We also deliver our products to the customers.
We eat our meals together but not on Friday or Saturday night and Saturday/Sunday morning. Of course we always provide food for all meals.
We are not vegetarians and we do not offer a vegetarian meal. But we are conscious about what we eat and where the food comes from. When you send in a request please let us know if you have any allergies or things you do not or cannot eat. Of course we provide for your food, sheets and towels.
We enjoy the company of people from other parts of the world and are interested in hearing your stories. We like to learn, share and teach and exchange recipes :) We like to play games :)
Welcome to contact us and tell us more about yourself and what you want to experience!

You will stay in a comfortable place near the barn. The place has a bathroom and shower, WiFi.
On your free time, which usually is the weekend, there is a lot to explore. If you want to leave the farm that is - both in the vicinity as well as longer trips to Stockholm or other interesting sites.
There is a bus stop near the farm which takes you to the bus or train station in Gnesta and Nyköping. Stockholm is nearby and so is Nyköping.
There are many lakes around the farm and in summer we often take a dive in lake ´Båven´ at the end of the day. If you stay at the farm all weekend we usually ask you to do one or two small chores.
