  • Description


    We have a hobby farm in Finland with many pets: a herd of Icelandic horses, 3 goats, a minipig, chickens, 4 dogs, 6 cats, hamsters, 2 geckos and an axolotl. We are a family of 5, the "kids" aged 12, 14, 18 and 22. We are originally from Austria but have been living in Finland since 15 years. The mom is a veterinarian (that's also why we have 6 cats, they are all rescues). We are a very chill, humorous and a bit crazy family in a chaotic household. We like to spend our free time with the animals and play board games.

    Workawayers here should be flexible, show initiative, and love spending time with pets and being outside with the horses. We would like a good cook to make family meals, and preferably someone who can ride horses.
    We are a non-smoking household.

    We don't have a business and the help needed would vary from day to day, the hours are flexible and taking time off to do trips wouldn't be a problem.

    We live in a big old house (140 years old) in the countryside surrounded by woods and fields. On our rides we cross a river. There is a lake 14 kilometers away that we sometimes visit in the summer to go for a swim. The ocean is also a 40 minute drive away.

    We speak german, finnish, swedish, english and the mom also knows how to speak french, icelandic and some spanish.
