This is an open year-round ecological B&B for overnight stays as well as special events such as conferences and weddings. Breakfast will be prepared with almost ecological raw ingredients from our neighbourhood or with fruit and vegetable from our own garden.

We need help from the 20th of june until the 15th of august to clean the rooms, to serve breakfast, to work in the reception and in our ecological garden. There is always some carpenter job and of course our goats. As you see the work is very varied and we would like you to work independently. It will be good if you have some experiences in house keeping and gardening.

We offer free accomodation and food (you prepare your own meals), free internet.We would like you to work 4 days a week, 6 hours the day (flexible).


Please notice that you should have some experience.


We are looking forward to hear from you.

Hi all,

We are Anders, Magdalena with our kids August 8 and Greta 6. We are creative family that left the city life behind 7 years ago, bought and old farm and started over.
Here we live the year around and run a popular organic cafe and a second hand shop from late spring to late summer.
The rest of the year we work rebuilding the farm and spending time with the kids. Everything we serve at the cafe is grown at the farm, with fermented vegetables, sour dough bread freshly baked every day and so on. We only have 1 acres of land that we try to utilise the best to our knowledge.

Right now there is chickens, ducks, one turkey! and bees that we take care of. They are all free range of course.
We do everything by ourselves and learned everything after we moved here and we do have an alternative, ecological and sustainable lifestyle which we feel we are obligated to.

We live in an old traditional house from the southern part of Sweden and build/repair everything on the farm... more inside

Our organic farm is a meeting place and a homestay for tourists, close to the Tiveden National park, where everything we grow, eat, build - how we live - is done with care for and gratitude towards Mother Earth.

We have cows and sheep grazing the fields and forest and we have hens that provide us with eggs. We are inspired by the principles of permaculture and have established a forest garden, which now is starting to produce berries, herbs, fruit etc.

We want to be self-sufficient on the farm, meaning that this year we will grow even more vegetables, herbs, fruit, berries and nuts. We are expanding the forest garden and we have just put up a 90 sqm big green house.

We have bees and we have just recently started to manage them according to natural bee-keeping principles.

We run courses and retreats on themes related to sustainability and nature and this area of operations is very much linked to everything we do on the farm. To be able to support ourselves we also offer a... more inside

We are Peter (Swedish), Solveig (German) and our kids Magali (7 years) and Dimitri (2 years). It is our privilege to live in a nice Swedish woodhouse built together with an old typical Swedish hut. A beautiful forest is protecting our house from North, to the West there is the view on a long-stretched lake. There are cats and chicken, too. We are trying to do as many things as possible ourselves, getting as independent as possible from the system. We are vegetarians and avoid dairy products as much as possible and as it makes sense. There is WiFi and we are non-smokers.
We are open-minded and tolerant towards all races, religions, sexual orientations, cultures etc. and are able to speak to you in Swedish, German, English and French.
There are lots of things to do besides the normal household and garden chores depending on the season. Babysitting is also always welcome!! Furthermore, we are planning to start up a retreat center for intensive retreats, workshops and seminaries. In ... more inside

A couple in their fifties asking to join their down to earth and artistic life in the old customs house (built 1939-40) at the border of Finland and Sweden.

The lady of the house is a performing artist and arts facilitator, the man is specialist in handicraft and responsible for the renovations in the house.

At spare time in the village, we visit some good friends, do cross-country skiing in winter, work in garden at summer, and pick berries and mushrooms in autumn. If volunteers stay with us for longer than a few weeks, we like to take them around to see the surroundings of Muodoslompolo.

We have a wide range of jobs which can be arranged to suit the volunteer: building with wood, painting, cooking, sorting firewood, light building work, electrical work... the list is endless!

You will have your own room in the house with a bed and bed sheets provided. We expect you to work 5 hours / day. You can arrange your own schedule.
