Hi! We are Arne & Desiree and Arnold, 3 years old. We are a Swedish family and are running a horse farm and also keep some country animals located in the country side. We run a small trail ridning business with the horses. The farm is beautifully situated on the shore of our small private lake surrounded by large pine forests. We have 11 horses, 2 sheeps, angora rabbits, a bunch of chicken, 1 family dogs, 1 cat and soon 1 milking cow.
We are trying to become as much self reliant as we can and are growing vegetables and herbs and all cooking is made on a wood fired stove in our large country kitchen.

We are both hardworkers. The life on the farm entails a lot of work everyday and this is our lifestyle which we enjoy. Arne´s focus on the farm is the horses and building whilst Desirée takes care of the garden, cooking food, housework and takes care of the 3-year old most of the time.

We have both lived in Australia for six years. Arne has also been travelling a lot around Asia and Europe. We are both open minded, finding interest in meeting new people, exchanging ideas and stories.

We are searching for someone who is willing to help out with the everyday tasks such as; giving food and water to the animals and cleaning out manure, watering the vegetable garden, dishing, cooking food, shopping wood for the woodheated stove, looking after the toodler etc.
And activities such as painting buildings, harvesting hey, weeding, picking berries etc.

FOR US TO BE INTERESTED IN YOU COMING TO US YOU NEED TO BE PHYSICAL FIT AND HAVE SOME UNDERSTANDING OF WHAT IT MEANS TO WORK ON A FARM! WE WORK PHYSICALLY HARD EVERYDAY AND THIS GOES ON EVERY DAY ALL YEAR ROUND!!

YOU NEED TO BE A QUICK LEARNER AND BE ABLE TO TAKE ON TASKS GIVEN TO YOU, FOLLOW INSTRUCTIONS AS WELL AS BEING FLEXIBLE AND SELFGOING!

As our helper you would live either in our house in a separate room or in the caravan. You will eat meals with the family.

During the free time you can enjoy the wild nature; take a horse ride by your own, go hiking in the beautiful natural reserves, swim in lakes in summertime, kayaking or fishing etc. In winter ice fishing, go skeeing, winter ride with the horses, play in the snow etc.

We regularly visit the town.

Nearby is several smaller towns, opportunities for whitewaterrafting, dogsledding and several natural attractions.

If you enjoy hard work, animals, outdoor activites and children this might be the place for you.

Send us some information on who you are, your experience on hard work, what you expect from the work experience and what dates you are interested in coming.

Kindly regards
Arne and Desirée
