  • Description


    Hello! We are a small family with me and two kids at ages 4 and 9 living on a farm just 30 min drive from Lillhammer, Hamar and Gjøvik (three major cities in Innlandet county). This is a place where you can both enjoy the peace and quiet at our farm and explore cities and nature.

    I work partly from home with yoga for womens health, moon ceremonies, womens circles, pregnancy and birth support and online courses. And partly out of the house in an office job.

    Staying with us will help you calm down, connect with nature and find back to yourself. I take pride in great coffee and Matcha lattes and we will enjoy this together in the sun listening to birds singing.

    Whenever you fancy some more city life you can go to one of the cities just 30 min drive away (catch a ride with me or take bus/train).

    Echange culturel et opportunités d'apprendre

    Staying with us means that you’ll get to experience developing a farm into something new and exciting. My short term goal is maintaining buildings and our home, creating a good environment to live in and growing food. Long term I want to have a community/retreat center here where people can relax, learn and come back to themselves. This is the second season and there is so much we don’t know yet and need to explore. And you will be a part of this!

    We are used to having people of other nationalities and cultures visit and staying with us. Also we enjoy sharing about our culture and answer questions you have. Including the more fundamental ones, not just the touristy joyful ones.

    I can help you get around in the area by taking you with me when I drive to places and also let you off at the train station near by when I can fit it into my schedule. So far this has worked out very well with previous workawayers.

  • Aide


    Extra help with the household. This includes preparing healthy meals from scratch, cleaning, organizing, taking care of indoor space and prepare our tinyhouse for guests (we rent it out on bnb). Baking sour dough bread (I can teach you), fermenting vegetables, cooking broth. We are a meat eating family that also enjoy vegetarian food.

    We prepare for painting the house this summer. Start building a herb spiral. And depending on how fast the snow melts we will start making hugel beds and pallets to grow food in. I also have some indoor painting projects that needs to be done.

    If the weather allows it we will paint the whole house. I use linseed oil paint. So it’s natural paint and interesting skill to learn if you’re into old fashioned rehabilitation. Linseed oil is without plastic which most commercial paints contains nowadays.

    Finishing off painting project from May if needed. Getting serious about garden and growing vegetables in hugel beds and in pallets. I am interested in permaculture and want to build these principles into the garden and outdoor area. Starting to establish outdoor areas for cozy summer days.

    Working outdoors with garden growing vegetables. Starting to harvest berries and making jam and jelly.

    Harvesting, preserving and tending the garden. Mushroom season starts and I have a few types that I pick in the forest nearby.

    Picking wild berries, mushrooms, preparing garden for next season and tending the plants and veggies that still grows.

    If you have skills with developing self sufficiency at a farm, herbal medicine, are a carpenter or love to cook please tell me and we can adjust to fit your interest.

  • Hébergement


    You will stay at the farm in your own room. In this room you have a double bed. My oldest son goes through this room to get to his, so it isn’t 100% private. If you want you can also stay out in the forest by our farm.

    When you stay with us you will count as part of our family. This means you are included in the activities we plan, that you’re welcome to join in and that we hope to get to know you and enjoy spending time together. It is up to you to choose what you’d like to join in on and we keep the communication open to make this a good experience for all.
