Type of business:
Argo-tourism on a farm (and some local tourist information, for also setting small- and other agro-tourism business in the area on the map)
Including Bed & Breakfast and also a small hostel and the farm. Recently, we built also a 37 km long hiking trail. For the moment no animal production. All together 15 ha open land and 15 ha forest.

I need help with agriculture the organic way, and maintains of the accommodation like painting outside and cutting grass (it's a riding mowers and once a year also tractor mowers, but that's only on the fields), but I am open for suggestions and will adapt to the knowledge of the volunteers own skills.

I have all together 6 rooms and 15 ha of open land. The first option is to cultivate at least 0,3 ha for organic gardening. Then I wish to have some poultry so I can serve fresh organic eggs for my guests

Presentation:
This is an old family farm that I run all by my self. I try to develop this farm into an agritourism place so it can be profitable. Fjällbacka is situated on the Swedish west coast in the area of northern Bohuslän. This is a popular tourism area in the summer; therefore I thought agritourism would be right direction to strive for here. The present goal is to serve guest 60% organic food a percentage I hope I can increase in the future.

I also would like to help other farmers to go in the same direction therefore I also have this small tourist information. I think agritourism is so under developed here in Sweden and therefore have great potential in the future. The farm Edsten is 3 km outside a small fishing- and tourist village Fjällbacka.

Famous for Ingrid Bergman had her holiday home here on an island outside Fjällbacka. The village is also well known for a large and beautiful archipelago. Not far from her are also a lot of rock carvings from Bronze Age.

Looking for:
Looking for a person that social and service-minded and like also like gardening.Other tasks normal maintains of the facilities like painting and cutting grass. Helpers not necessary need to be a vegetarian, smoking is allowed outdoors as well for the guests.

Period:
The period for 2013 is now filled.
Welcome to announce your interest for 2014!
If you are in the area of northern Bohuslän also welcome in to say hallo!

Sincerely,
Leif Karlsson
