About

Emdalsgjerdet is a small organic farm, situated in the heart of the Sunnmørealps, not far from the UNESCO World Heritage Area Geirangerfjord and the coastal city of Ålesund. At the moment we have 24 Galloway cattle, two horses and three cats. We also have a small vegetable garden, where we grow a variety of crops, thereunder old potato varieties, different types of green kale, squash, salad and sugar peas.

The farm is conducted part-time, which means that we have all have jobs besides the farm business as well. Some alone-time might therefor be expected.

About us:
We are three people living at Emdalsgjerdet. My parents Steffen (58) and Iris (56) and I (31, Mandy). Our familiy is originally from Germany, but we have lived in Norway for over 15 years.

Work tasks:
Work here can include feeding and tending to the animals, gardening, fencing, helping with the hay harvest and chooping firewood. In 2016 we started to build a new stable for our animals, therefore work tasks can also include carpentry, mainly painting. In 2017 we plan to redesign our garden and hopefully get some chickens :)

Accommodation:
Either in the farm house or the caravan near the farm house. Shared bath. All meals included. We share dinner most days. We are non-vegetarian. We have internet and WiFi, but we would like wwoofers who need the internet to bring their own devices.

Activities in the area:
Stranda offers fantastic possibilities for all sorts of sport and leisure activities. There are marked tracks for hiking or one can join organized trips/tours. You can go fishing, canoeing, rafting and many other things.

In the course of 1- 2 hours from Stranda (by car or bus) you can visit the following attractions:

- The town Ålesund (The art nouveau town and the Atlantic Park, a wonderful aquarium)
- The Golden Route (Geiranger, the Eagles` Road, the Giants` Road, Åndalsnes)
- The town Molde
- The Summer Ski centre of Stryn Mountain
- Hiking trips on arms of the Jostedal Glacier (Kjenndalen, Bødalen, Briksdalen)
- Runde (The bird island, population of 500.000 birds)

What do we look for?
Personally, we search for someone that is reliable and eager to learn. Someone who is genuine interested in organic farming and who isn`t afraid to ask when there is something unclear. Farm life can be somewhat stressful at times, especially when you see the dark clouds rolling in and you still have a ton of grass lying on the ground ;) We need someone who can stay focused and finish a task.
Does that sound like you? Contact us for more information.

We can host max. two Wwoofers at a time.

You can also find us on facebook. Search for "Emdalsgjerdet".
