Due to the Coronavirus, we currently only accept volunteers who are already in Norway, - and you should preferably stay here for awhile. If you come from EU/ES country, - is it in a special case possible arrange you an invitation, but only if you want be here for longer period.

The farm is 190 ha (fields, forest, hill/mountain, water), about 40 km north of the city Trondheim. After few years break, there are again milk production on the farm. This is a production who off course going on all year around. Nice when you like animals, want spend time and learn more from maybe when calf get born, needful care and maybe milk the cows. Today a dairy company coming with truck and pick up the milk, but would be really exciting if possible create a organic dairy product in future, who is not in any market yet :) This project is most suited for a female volunteer - light farm work and housework, with opportunities to contribute to the expansion of this project.


In the spring/summer, we will continue experimenting with organic strawberries. Here in Norway, organic strawberry production is not common yet, but it seems consumers like strawberries that are not contaminated with chemicals. In the past, I have tried some prepared food products (strawberry jam and juice), and wonder about other products. Both the local organic ice cream maker and previous consumers asking over and over again for such strawberries we produced here,- so this is a production we should take up again as soon we get time :)


You should be interested in organic farming and sustainable lifestyle. As a volunteer, you will enjoy farm life, learn about traditional farming methods combined with new technology, plus free room/board and good friendship. You will also get a chance to experience harder farmwork such as haymaking, forestry (i.e. logging), renovations (i.e. wall painting), and later possibly horse training, etc.


In our free time we can hiking in mountain. It's a varied landscape and many lakes/ rivers. You also gets chances to see the nearby area/ cities when I drive for some errands.

If you helping for a longer period, is it possible to get an agreement for paid job and/or refund of your travel expenses.

The number of people I can host, depends on the season and the activity we plan to do.
