About

We are a small family consisting of two adults and an thirteen year old boy, that lives and works on a farm in the beautiful nature of Värmland. When we bought the farm in 2011, it had been rented out for years and the land was only used for the grass. A part of the land has now been transformed into a vegetable garden and we have also used a part for planting an orchard with various types of fruit. But there still remains a lot to be cultivated. On the farm live also our cats and we have chickens, ducks, bees and a lot of rabbits.

Our aim is to build a self sufficient farm and we use the ideas and design of Permaculture to achieve this. Besides the work on the farm, do we also try to be active in our community. We are a couple from Holland, consider ourselves as internationals. We speak Dutch, Swedish, English and a little German. We love nature, a simple lifestyle, good conversations, and most of all: getting things done. We try to avoid watches and clocks and follow our own rhythm.

We welcome, at this moment, 1 wwoofers at a time in a stuga (is a type of cabin) or tent. You can sparsely use the shower in our house and you have your own composting toilet close to the stuga. You can also use the wifi in the evenings if needed to contact family. We prefer a minimal stay of one week, and longer if it works out well. We invite people who appreciate a simple, basic lifestyle, who like the calm and beautiful nature and want to do some practical physical work. We have a wide variety of jobs you can help us with depending on the weather and season. Many of them in the garden of course, but we have also some building projects and forest work. We don't look for help inside our house to be clear. But someone who has basic handy skills and can work on his/her own effectively after showing how we want it.

This year (2018) we plan to finish the fence for our orchard, fence gates, finish our shop building, a new rabbit social living and hold courses till example. We plan to grow more vegetables for our products and plant more fruit bushes. You can also help us with making hay, the old fashioned way, painting, planting plants and a lot of other things. A normal workweek for a wwoofer consists of about 6 hours a day with nice breaks, 5 days a week, depending more or less on the weather, plans and jobs (it counts up to 8 hours with the breaks we have). After the work is done, it is time to relax.

You can use our bikes if available, go fishing, horseback riding (renting from a farm in the neighborhood), walk in the beautiful surrounding, go for a swim in our ponds or a beach near the lake (4 km) and a lot more. There is a little town nearby (5 km) which has a café, a supermarket and a Viking museum. You are of course welcome to join us on our day trips.

Vi är en familj, två vuxen och en trettonårig pojke, från Holland som bor och arbetar på en gård i Värmlands vackra natur. Vi kom hit 2011 och har sedan dess hållit på med att förvandla betesmark i odlingsmark, där vi odlar olika sorters ekologiska grön- och rotsaker. Vi har också planterat en trädgård med olika slags fruktträd. Vår gård kompletteras av några smådjur, katter, höns, ankor, kaniner och bin.
Vårt mål är att bli självförsörjande och vi använder permakulturens idéer för att nå detta.

Vi pratar svenska, engelska, lite tyska samt naturligtvis holländska. Vi älskar naturen, en enkel livsstil, goda samtal och, framförallt att få saker gjorda. Vi försöker att inte leva på klockan och följa vår egen rytm.

Vi tar emot en eller two wwoofare samtidigt, som bor i en stuga. Du kan använda dusch i vårt hus, och har en utedass nära stugan. Vi har en trådlös uppkoppling, som du kan använda. Vi föredrar en vistelse på minst en vecka, och längre om det fungerar bra. Om du uppskattar en enkel livsstil, gillar lugn och en vacker natur och inte är rädd för att hugga i lite, är du mer än välkommen. Vi har olika sorters jobb. Många av dem har med odling att göra, men vi har också några byggprojekt. I år tänker vi bygga en växthus av fönster och en snickarbod med rundvirke till exempel. Men du kan också hjälpa oss med slåtter, att måla , förbereda maten och mycket annat.

En vanlig wwoofares arbetsvecka är 6 timmar om dagen, 5/6 dagar i veckan, men det beror lite på vädret, planer och jobb också. Efter jobbet är det dags för att ha kul. Du kan använda våra cyklar, det finns gott om fiskevatten, du kan rida, vandra och bada, allt inom 5 kilometer. Det finns en liten by också, som har ett sommarcafé, en ICA och även ett Vikingamuseum. Dessutom kan du följa med oss på våra utflykter.
