Autumn/winter 2016
We are looking for helpers now, starting immideatly/as soon as possible and for 6 weeks.

The farmer has had an accident and we need help for daily farm work.

This includes work like
-feeding sheep
-moving sheep
-feeding chickens, cats and dog
-Walking dog
-cleaning and organising barn

About 3 hours work every day.

About the farm:
We have a sheep farm with around 150 sheep and around 300 lambs during summer We also have two horses, 11 lovely chickens, two cats. And one sheep dog.

Our farm is situated on the foot of a national park, and we are surrounded by beautiful rivers, mountains and forest. It is a 25 minute drive to the nearest city (Lillehammer), and a five minute drive to the nearest shop. Klimate is stable during summer.

We are planning to make a lot of homemade traditional food, so if you have an interrest in learning how to make jam, special kinds of bread, you will be able to learn it here :). This activity is seasonal (july-september).

Working hours depends on the season, but we always make sure that the helpers have time off to go explore. If one day is longer, the next day is off. Weekends are always off. We would love to guide you to the nearest sithseeings and tell you about the area (where to go, what to see).

About us: We are two 35 year old farmers with two children, a girl 4 years and a boy 10 months.
Accommodation: We live in a 250 m3 farmhouse. The house has a ground Level with private bedroom and private exit, the bathroom is situated on the first floor. All meals are cooked in the shared kitchen and we all eat together :).

Our webpage is in Norwegian, but there are some nice pictures :) Take a look via link above.
