We are a family of five, Roger 56, Marianne 52, Nikolai 21, Hannah 19 og Peter 15. Nikolai and Hannah are currently living and working in Tromsø. The farm is 5 km from the nearest store in Mestervik and 20km from the community center Storsteinnes. We bought Heim gård 10 years ago and have been reorganising it to suit us and our way of living. Such as cleaning undergrowth on the pastures so that our animals can graze, remodelling the barn that was used for cows into a stable, building a sauna etc. We also have a boat we use for fishing. Work here will involve mucking out the stable and handling the horses, feeding chickens and cleaning the roost, gardening, some cooking, picking berries, fencing, making hay, chopping firewood, building/restoring barn and every other little thing that needs to be done on a farm.
Some project for this year are fencing different area for the horses and making hay on traditional way, hopefully, if the weather permits it. Paint has to be refreshed on some of the buildings :) If you know how to handle a chainsaw and have a little carpentry skills it would be super :) Working independently is also a good thing :) The helpers will be living in a caravan or in a cabin, depending on the season, free WIFI.
