High­lights

Live the fairytale farmlife in Norway
You get to work with freerange animals
You get to contribute to balansing ecosystems
You would help us build a blueprint for farms around - and do it through all sorts of various work. This volunteer program is especially suitable for:
Age 18+
Singles
Couples
Groups

You will work beside us, and we will tend to the fields, the animals and maintenance on the farm. It's an advantage if you have worked physically before and carpentry is always welcome. 

You get to stay in a apartment at the farm, and have your own household. Days usually start at 08:30 and end at 16:30, with lunch in between. We find out how to handle the projects at hand and solve things together. 
It's nice hikes and possibility to use boat for fishing or kayaking on the lake while you are here.  The farm is located on a half island so its surrounded by water. 
We will try our best to make your stay as good as possible, and are looking for friendly, heart warm and motivated people that wants to stay for a longer period of time.
We need most help from end April to mid December. Please check us our in our social media and google us if you want to see some of the tings we do :) 
Being a volunteer with us gives you a chance to be part of an ecosystem balancing farm, thats taking the completely different way than most industrial farms are. With the climate change and the disrespect for animals as the beings they are, this farm tries to make things different. We cant do it alone as it's a lot of work, and would really need your help to get done whats needed to be done. 
All our animals are free range, outdoors and soya free feed, and we even have made a home slaughterhouse to be able to give our animals the maximum stress free life all the way to the end. This is more expensive, more work but sooo much more rewarding to see the animals so happy. 
We want to show that it's possible, so that other may follow the same path. 

Typical day

It's hard to give a " typical day" description, because this varies enormously with the year. It could be helping to see to sheep having lambs in the spring, help fencing in the summer, check on pigs and fences in the summer and fall, help harvest and prepare harvest in the fall. Help maintaining the farm :)
