Hello! I am restoring and restarting a small old farm on a beautiful island on the south eats coast of Norway. The place is located next to a small road in the forest, about 10 minutes walk from the sea. I'm building a sheep herd with an old style Viking sheep, setting up fences, chopping wood for cooking and heating, making hay, working a vegetable garden, collecting mush rooms, apples (making apple sauce), jam, herbs, wild berries and sea weed. Fixing my old truck, my old tractor, my old boat. Repairing the house, getting used building materials everywhere, renewing my barn to make it an art studio and I want to build a guest cabin close to the main house. Also, I carry out nature management and do ecological research. There's always a lot to do and you can also carry out your own projects over here. Artists are also welcome to work over here :)
There is no strict schedule of activities: I rather have people here doing something they choose and like to do, since there are many different sorts of work to be done.

I am easy going and social, I studied art (sculpture) and forestry, and have traveled many years all over the world as a forester, mainly in central and west Africa, Europe and Scandinavia. I like to cook and eat well, I like to exchange and talk, I like to share and I like the input and fresh perspective guests bring in over here.

Just feel free to contact me any time if you are interested to stay a while!
