    Descrição

    UPDATE:
    We have enough helpers until June 2022. You are welcome to contact us for the available months. Looking forward to hear from you.
    Take care!

    Johanna and me (KAT) are living in the northern part of Sweden since 2007. We have seen many different places in the North and worked ourselves as helpers on different farms.

    This is our homestead since 2011. Here we are running a competitive sled dog kennel with around 25 dogs. Some of them are retired sled dogs, enjoying their live on the couch inside and the other ones are crazy super athletes who enjoy running 1000 km in a week.

    The sled dogs are the heart and soul at this place.

    We started a permaculture garden where we are growing vegetables like salad, tomatoes, pumpkins and much more (we take a break with the vegetables in summer 2019 due to many building projects).

    We pick a lot of berries in summer and autumn to make jam, dry fruits and vegetables, smoke meat and take fish from the lake. We love backing our bread, mainly with spelt flour, only thing missing is a clay oven outside. For sure one of the future projects.

    We like to skype or video call via Whats app with every interested helper - so enough room to ask all your questions.
    Looking forward to meet you.

    Your accommodation:
    Small log cabin next to the dogs. Simple but cozy. We use the cabin as well for dog treatments, so it won´t be free of dog hair :-) Kitchen is in the main house. Toilet and shower (sauna) outside.

    NOTE: We don’t have a toilet inside, but we have a simple and well working outdoor toilet. We shower in the sauna – typical Finnish style. You will love it!

    Food:
    High quality is more important for us than a high variation. That means we are buying a lot of biodynamical food and try to cook a lot of seasonal dishes. You will not find fresh exotic fruits here, ok – sometimes we buy bananas… But I think you get the point.
    We eat lunch and dinner together, great if you also like to share some of your favorite dishes with us!

    Projects during the year:
    - Fishing – laying out nets and taking care of the fish (may – oct)
    - Helping with daily tasks in the kennel – a lot of scooping the poop 😊, walking the retired dogs, feeding, giving massages, shoveling snow in winter (all year around)
    - Helping with building, repairing, painting – due to your interests and skills (april – oct)
    - Picking berries (aug-sept)
    - Gardening – moving the lawn, weeding, harvesting (may – sept)
    - Making firewood – splitting and stacking (April-may)
    - and cooking of course
