About

We are continuing a legacy from the father and forefather of my wife, a small scale farm. We are a family of 4, with 2 kids aged 4 and 6, a boy and a girl. The mother of my wife is still living here, in the house next to us.

We started up with a small herd of sheep a year or so after the farm was handed over to us. We have several projects and have set many goals we would like to achieve, and welcome any help we can get :)
Current projects: Establishing new areas for the sheep to graze on in the spring/autumn. Maintenance of existing fields (fences).
We chop down trees (birch) and produce firewood for sale. We also normally have at least one environmental/culturing adjustment of some area of landscape we own each year. We also try to plow, harrow and sow one of the fields of grass that we own each year. We own 4 cabins that need attendance and maintenance.
Hopefully will some of these tasks be of interest for you :)
I am an agronomist and will of course share the knowledge I have gained through studies and from farming, through discussions and through the work we do at the farm.

Our most hectic period is during lambing. We expect about 170 lambs in april-may 2017. The lambing can occur both day and night so it can be an effort to get through it :)

We have a wonderful nature here, and we live in a quiet, peaceful area. There are many possible activities naturewise in our "backyard" :) During winter the most popular activity around here is probably skiing or going on trips with the snowmobile. We have a lake close by for swimming etc during summer.

My wife has a job outside the farm, she works as a teacher. I also work as a teacher 4 days a week (part time).
Lodging: We have some seperate buildings you can sleep in.
We would like you to share dinner with us, and welcome you to introduce us to cooking from your country if you feel like it.
We will supply you with food so that you can make breakfast, lunch and your evening meal by yourself.
Food: We eat "normal" norwegian food; Healthy, nourishable food:
Fresh vegetables, fish, fruit, meat, bread etc.
Other things to note: We live far from shops and even farther away from cafees, cinemas etc :) It's about a 15 km drive to nearest grocery.
Note that our kids are still small and require a lot of attention, they take their toll on us parents. Due to this we prefer for you to leave our house in the evenings when we put the kids to bed, so that we can have some time for ourselves as well :)
Note: All wwoofers that would like to come to us must have an insurance that can cover any eventual accident.
To ensure that our wwoofers have read our presentation, please write the word "Grond" when you apply to be hosted by us.

NOTE: Dont apply for a stay with us if you want to stay longer than 10-17 days.
