Hi!
This is a small farm I bought in October 2012, it had been neglected for over thirty years and only used as a holiday home, the fields were overtaken by the forest (now cleared).
The house has no running water and is off-grid.
I installed a small PV system for electricity (12,24 and 230v) and during the dark months I top up the batteries w a diesel generator.

My goal is to be semi self sufficient, so far only potatoes.
The help I need includes but are not limited to:growing veggies, plowing, harrowing, sowing, planting an orchard, building fences, logging, wood chopping, fishing, construction work, digging and more, there is always something that needs doing :)

Note!
During harvest season work will be non stop and you'll get free time after harvest is finished.
Most work is hands on, physical so pls be honest if you are not fit for that.

Accomodation is 1 room w 2 beds and a spare and a public room w 2 double sofa beds. Shared kitchen etc.

Don't hesitate to send me an email if you have any questions.

I speak and understand:
Swedish, native
English fluently
Francais, pauvres
German, schlecht
