  • Description


    Hello :)
    My name is Thomas a nature loving guy born in 1987.
    I now have the company of 1 dog, 2 cats, , 10 chicken, 3 guinea pigs, 4 ducks, 2 bunnies, 12 sheeps and 30 beehives at my smallfarm.

    My property is my favorite place in the hole world. It is spaceies, has a good view, goes all the way down too the lake, has a big garden, a small forest, and some ekstra land where my sheeps goes. See photos :)

    I have 2-3 days pr week where I work from 8 am too 4 pm in the municipality. The rest of my time I always spend at home. There is always something too do. It can be cutting gras, making firewood, giving animals food, fenceing, picking berries, painting buildings, walking the sheeps (yes, actually walking the sheeps outside theire fence) and so on.

    About 2024:
    I am not vegan, but i would really like too try this kind of lifestyle. I am therefore mainly looking for some who likes cooking vegan dishes and would like too share some inspiration in that field too me.
    I like growing food, and in 2023 i focused on making a lot of compost. I am planing on using this too make a bigger vegetable garden in 2024. This is a project i hope too share with you.
    I also have two other big projects. One is finishing renovating mye two outer walls on the house and building a roof over the entrance and porch. The second is fencing in a new big sheep field that i just have acquired.
    My sheeps will also have lambs this spring. This plus the beekeeping and taking care of the other animals is also some daily activities too do.

    If you want to come here, you will live together with me in main house. I have two spare bedrooms in the second floor that you get for your self. The living room and kitchen is at first floor, with a nice view out-looking the lake. I bet you will spend most of your time outside, as I normally do. But I also have a lot of bordgames we can play at night, tv, PlayStation, and so on. There is okay fishing here, i have bikes you can use if you want to se more of the place, two kayak.
    I like too make food, but i also think it is a fun experience eating dishes from other countries, so i hope we can share some of the dinner making :)
