  • Description


    I am a woman who runs a small farm in the countryside. On the farm there are horses, sheep, hens/chickens and some small animals - and two dogs.

    I work with children/adolecents visiting the farm and they stay for the weekends and holidays. My main work is with them, but as usual all the animals and chores on the farm needs to be done. We will either do them togheter or separetely. Hope you like to work independantly.

    There will be (depending on the time of year) chores like:
    *️️️️️️️️ go in the forest to look for the sheep
    *️️️️️️️️ putting up/taking down fences
    *️️️️️️️ taking away grass and do wood in the forest
    *️ gardening/mowing
    *️ picking berries/fruit, making jam
    *️️️️️️️️ feeding/watering horses and other stuff with horses
    *️ taking care of other animals
    *️️️️️️️️ painting of fences
    *️️️️️️️️ being with the children
    *️️️️️️️️ cooking, like making breakfast/lunch/dinner
    *️ some help in the house
    *️ painting walls inside the house
    and whatever comes up.
    On a farm like this it's always something to do for everybody and things of interest for most people.

    There are not a lot of other people around. My parents live nearby and my brothers with their families. The nearest city is 7km away and there are busses. You will have a bed either in my living-room or a separat bedroom and you will share bathroom with the others in the house. You will be a part of the family.

    Some farm experience or work with animals would be appreciated. You need to be able to work independantly once given a task. And have good English language. You must love the outdoors and like to work with your body.

    I need someone who is open minded and respectful and are willing to help where ever they can. On a farm like this it's always something to do. Worktime is different during the day, but you will have plenty of time off.

    Hope to hear from you!
