We are a small farm on the beautiful island of Gotland in Sweden. 2018 will be the third season of CSA, community supported agriculture. We grow our vegetables in an ecological way. We deliver bags filled with a variety of fresh vegetables and deliver once a week from May until October. Our customers sign up for the whole season. It is a beautiful way for people to get in touch with where and how their food is produced. It builds a close relationship between producer and customer. For many of our customers it is a new experience to follow the season and get to know new vegetables and new recipes. We love to inspire people to eat local and seasonal food. The first year we grew vegetebles for 5 households, the second season we had 21 housholds and for 2018 we aim for 35. It is important for us to grow slowly as a company, so that we ourselves are also able to learn and develop along the way. We grow a great variety of different vegetables, both on fields and in greenhouses. One part of the field we grow in raised beds (with inspiration from the Market Gardener) and the rest in more traditional rows on the field. We cultivate vegetables on around 0,5 ha. The rest of the area of the farm consist in fields that are leased out to other farmers and also forest.
We are a family of 3 kids, (3, 5 and 7 years old) and 2 adults. Lars works at the ambulance helicopter and Matilda works with the csa on the farm. We are interested in woodcraft (Lars makes and sells pipes) , swiming (Matilda crawls with a wetsuite in the ocean), singing, beerbrewing and hanging around with family and friends. We live close to the Baltic Sea (300 meters) and you can use our kayaks if you like to paddle and you can also borrow a bike. The farm is placed in Boge, a small village 35 kilometers from Visby on the east coast of Gotland.
We are looking for people who love working on the field. Our plan is to have 2-3 persons at the time from May to July. We prefer that you stay at least 4 weeks. It is a very physical job so you have to be healthy and fit and ready to work hard as we also do. You will work with sowing, planting, transplanting, weeding, taking care of plants, harvesting, packing, and delivering to our customers in our beautiful red van - Doris. Yes, Matilda has read the Jenny Colgan books. ;-) In a small, old farm there is always need of building and reparing different things, so intrest and skills in carpentry would be helpful. You will also help with taking care of our animals. We have 2 pigs, 4 -10 sheep, and and 20 – 30 hens. English is required and used as the common language, but we also speak Swedish and Matilda speaks Spanish (she´s a Spanish teacher). We assume that you are friendly and positive and that you show respect to others and to the nice and clean environment around you. You work 6 hours 5 days a week, from 8.00 to 15.00 with 1 hour break.
You live in a small and cosy cabin right by the sea. 2- 3 person can share the cabin. There you can prepare your own breakfast and dinner. You can use the shower in our house. We eat lunch together at the farm and we all (both wwoofers and us) take turns on preparing lunch. We eat a lot of vegetarian food but also meat mostly from our own farm. We love to share life but we also think it is important both for our wwoofers and for us to feel that we have space and the posibility to be on your/our own. If it is too cold in May, you stay in a guest room in our house on the farm instead of living in the cabin. You have access to shared shower and toilet on the farm. Near the cabin there is an outhouse and also a sauna by the sea. On the farm there is wifi that you can use.
We all live and learn, and look forward to both teach you what we know about farming and also learn and get new ideas from you.
