About

Hello and welcome to Paradise Field!

Paradise Field (Paradisheden in Swedish) sounds beautiful, and it truly is. The name originates from a spring located in the area which was active at the end of the 19th and the beginning of the 20th century, and was renowned for its healing properties.

I live alone on the farm with my animals. I have four grown-up daughters who have now left home, but all come and visit me regularly. I'm very social and enjoy the country life and I like to show others the art of organic farming.

The farm is affiliated to KRAV, the Swedish organization for controlled organic production. The animals I keep are: chickens, pigs, a herd of Hereford cattle (consisting of cows, calves and a few bulls), and one cat. The farm is self-sufficient in fodder for the animals.

You will have your own living space in a small cabin (without water) in the back yard. You will also have access to the main house with all its facilities, including the kitchen, bathroom/shower, phone and internet.
The farm accommodates one person, or two if you're a couple or close friends.

The tasks you will be required to do include the daily care of the animals, refilling water tanks, checking fences, moving animals between different pastures and erecting new fences. We harvest fodder for the animals, chop wood to heat the main house, and keep the farm maintained by painting, carpentry, mowing the lawn and weeding flower beds. There's also a small vegetable patch that needs some tender loving care once in a while.

It takes time to get to know each other enough to work well as a team. However, there is a lot to do on a farm with both animals and crops, so prepare yourself for the fact that time will fly!
