About

Close to the sea here in Nes, Hamarøy we have a nice little farm. Here you can go swimming, fishing and walk in the beautiful mountain landscape.
We are husband and wife in the late 50’s. We have two grownup children and one grandson. They don’t live here but usual they visit us during the summer.
Right now we have about 50 “norwegian wild sheep”, (gammel norsk utegangarsau), which stay out all year around. They do have shelters. Most ewes, some rams and of course lambs.
We started 3 years ago on this old farm which has been in the family for many generations. 40 years with no production have given us a lot of work to reopen the farm.
We need help with grass production (making hay) in the old way. Two methods, drying hay on ground with tedder, or the most used traditional method in Scandinavia, hay racks/hay stacks. We possibly also need help with some scrub clearance and organic fertilization. We prefer to use seaweeds from the shoreline. We need wwoofers to stay during summer from about June 1 to August 31. Some activity from June 1 to June 15, and from Agust 15 to August 31. Main activity on the farm from June 15 to August 15. The work is 5 days a week and 2 days of. The work starts at 09:00, lunch for about 30 minutes, is at 11:30 and end of the working day is 15:00. Here, both –we and you- need to be flexible. Northern Norway is well known for some rainy days, also in the summer. When the hay is dray and the sun is shining there will be some hard work to get the crop in the barn before the rain set in again. In general we will take part in the work ourselves.
We have a cabin to wwoofers disposal. 6 sleeping places, materials for cooking, refrigerator, freezer, washer, toilet and shower. There is also an old TV with some foreign canals.
We have wifi, but you have to share with us. The connection isn’t suitable for movies and gaming.
Of course, we don’t accept drugs in any form.
We hope this is OK and that the stay with us will be nice and memorable for you.
