Last Updated: April 24, 2015

We are a Swedish family with 3 young children 7, 5 and a 2 year old. Our children are very much a huge part of our lives and day to day routine.
On our farm we have 2 cats, chickens, roosters, sheeps, goats and summer pigs. We speak Swedish and English and are very family orientated and active. We are always outside playing with the children, looking after the animals and we love to eat outside overlooking the picturques landscapes as long as the weather permits :-)
We live in a beautiful, rural village on the borders of Swedish lapland. Our house is situated overlooking green fields and the Vindeln River, which runs from the mountains to Umea in Sweden (Umea has been elected European Capital of Culture for 2014 and if you are interested in northern Swedish culture you have come to the right family ;-)
We're looking for someone who can speak English ( Swedish would be a bonus, but not required) to come and live with our family. The work varies, but mostly it has something to do with building and renovating farm buildings, painting doors and old furniture, feeding and caring for the farm animals and some childcare (patience is a good quality). You will also be splitting firewood, playing with the children on the beach, having barbeques, and if you want, helping to make cakes and homemade bread in a genuine Swedish way over an open fire.
Accomodation during your stay. You can choose from have your own cottage house, with electricity, access to TV and wifi, or if you want, to stay in our guest room in the house. All meals are included and you are always welcome to eat with the family.
Driver prefered. Non-smoker. Vegetarian ok. We'd really like someone who can come for a longer period - for example at least 4-8 weeks which will allow you to settle in and enjoy everything our beautiful peaceful wilderness has to offer.. and be a part of our little family.
We are offering 5 days a week work with weekends off. We would like to have a trial period of 2 weeks and if all goes well we welcome and long happy stay with us
Please email us with any questions you may have

Hope to hear from you soon
