  • Description


    We desperately need extra help during May due to a cancelling.

    All lambs are expected to be born in 3-4 weeks.
    Its really intensive, but rewarding too.. Probably an experience for your life. Its extremly satisfying helping new life to a nice start!

    We are hoping for someone that will take part in the most important periode at our farm!

    We are a family of five living on a sheepfarm in the northern part of Norway.
    We have two dogs, Tyra and Runa.
    Our background contains different jobs such as woodenboat building, teaching, social works, carpentry and delivering pizza....

    The children, 3 boys are in primary school and secondary education.
    Vivian like working with wool in various ways and joinery. Jan-Erik enjoys his work at the farm, and consider the way of living as his hobby too.
    We are located seaside on the island Engeløya.
    We want to produce more of our own food, and try to get as much asposdible from local production.
    We are allready self supported with most of our fish and meat.

    In the barn there is a complete shop for woodworking, and also possible to do mecanical repairs.

    We love to live close to the nature and love to use the surroundings in our dayly living. In the winter we love skiing and stort hiking trips when it's not to much snow. During the summer the landscape is perfect for bicycling, hiking and boat use.

    Echange culturel et opportunités d'apprendre

    You will get lots of experiences as part of our family and community.
    It's as far as possible from a city in rural Norway in a small community.
    We find it a good reason for a slow lifestyle. At the same time you can choose from a great number of activities. The wheather also play its part in planning the day about what's possible to do.
    The scenery is facinating and exotic. Daylight all summer, (day and night) and short days in the winter. We live by Norwegian traditions and language, but are communicating in English or some German too.

  • Aide


    Small building projects, maintenance, sometimes just a helping hand om the barn.
    Maybe you manage to feed the sheep in the winter, or work with a chainsaw?
    Its nice if you can walk our dogs too.

    In May we get the lambs and that take most of our time.

    You need to be normally fit because its a lot of hard labour. You should be quite selfmotivated, and sometimes you can be working alone.

    We expect you to take part in the normal householding, and its nice if you somtime can do some cooking.

    If you want to be able to go places more than around the farm, driving license is recomended, otherwise you get around the island in a couple hours by bike...

    Your own room in our house. Meals with the family, access to the whole house when/ if we go away.

    We produce and eat meat and want you to join our meals. It's nice if you have some dish you'd like to share too.
    We eat a lot of home baked bread, and local food. Mostly from local fishing, hunting and of course from the sheep.

    We want you to feel as a member of the family during the stay.
