  • Descrição



    After several years owning a little farm in Western Norway (Workaway Host since 2019), we have moved to Eastern Norway to become tenants/stewards at a larger farm.

    We have taken over this organic farm autumn 2023. The plan is to have mixed organic farming with vegetable production, dairy cows, working horses and sheep, tourism and riding horses. We are Cornelia (46) who is farmer, Jan (34) who works outside the farm and Peter (5 and disabled). The animals on the farm are 4 calves, 6 horses (two work horses and four riding ponies), a few hens, a dog and two cats. The farm is situated by a lake and surrounded by forests.

    This is our first year on this farm, so I (Cornelia) am looking for someone who keeps me with company and helps me with everything connected to our establishing on this farm and the daily animal care. If you have knowledge about horses it would be great. A workawayer is for me like a family member, you will live in our home and share all meals and activities.

    If you are interested, take contact for more information :)

    DISCLAIMER: Workawayers at our place will not take part in any business, profit-making activity. We are not a business host.

    Oportunidades de intercâmbio cultural e aprendizado

    You will experience a life on a farm on the countryside with plenty of animals and plants, something quite different from modern, industrial agriculture. You will meet a multilingual family of a farmer and an ecologist that will be glad to talk with you, and share their thoughts and experiences about life as foreigners in Norway, ecological and traditional agriculture, ecological restoration, etc.

  • Ajuda


    There will be a lot of different things to do, like animal care (we have 7 cows, 10 goats, 4 horses, a dog, two cats and some hens), a bit of renovating in the house, build a fence and making the stables ready for the animals for the winter as well as just being company for me and joining in day to day tasks in house keeping and child care (4 years, disabled).

    We prefer stays for Workawayers for at least 2 weeks, preferably longer.

    Algo mais...

    Time off can be spend by: experiencing the nature around the farm - or, if you have car, in a broader area around. Lots of forests and lakes in the area. If wanted it is possible to ride the ponies. Or you can just sit in the living room or at the terrace, read if you like (we have many books on different topics - mostly in German and Norwegian, but also some in English), drink tea/coffee/whatever, and just enjoy the view and silence.

    Available transport:
    - trains from Oslo (from Oslo airport Gardermoen via Lillestrøm) to Kongsvinger (approx. 1,5 hours)
    - busses from Kongsvinger to Skotterud (approx. 0,5 hours)

    We can of course help you with finding suitable transport, and pick you up at Skotterud (approx. 5 minutes drive from the farm).
