Small farm 40 min. by car, south of Oslo.
On the farm we try to produce vegetables and meat for our one household, a small greenhouse is mostly used for chilli and tomatoes. Everything is done organic. In fact we are very in to good and healthy food.
We have a little sawmill where we produce materials for building maintenance and fences.
Goats needs to be fed and looked after, wood need to be chopped and a thousand other things waiting for a helping hand.

The 05th of june our 150 cashmire goats are transported to a noninhabited island in the Oslofjord. This is our summerfarm where we live and work all summer, we have a café for tourists and we handmilk thirty goats and make chevre from the milk. We bake bread in a woodfired oven (130 years old) in the morning, and everything is done without electricity. Those who sign up for this period will experience hard work and long hours. We treat everyone as a equal part of the team, and there is a lot to learn for those that are interested. It can be an experience for life if you enjoy nature and the "simple" life.
