Norsøk and Nibeo, national research facilities for organic farming.
Hilde and Ulf believe in God and the Bible, through prayer they was able to buy this beautiful farm in 2012 with a vision to start cultivating the earth in an organic, ecological, biodynamic way to produce vegetables, fruits and berries. Permakultur and Agroforestry.
Our dream is to create a sustainable, ecological farm, inspired by biodynamic cultivation, permaculture and respect of the environment. We are aiming to be able to sustain ourselves and our guests with home grown, ecological food to support a healthy way of living. We are hoping to start with bee-keeping next year.
Digging a pond for the ducks and the Lamas is one of the projekts ... and also to finish the greenhouses.
Hilde and Ulf have been taking courses in ecological cultivation. Ulf is a carpenter, and a very capable handyman. They both love working with wood. Hilde has an education in natural medicine, homeopathy, as a naturheilpraktiker and as a traditional chef. She has several years of experience in Strandgården Health Home in Sweden, and since being vegan for 12 years, she is very skilled in cooking meals for vegans, vegetarians as well as for people who have special diets (like diabetes). Hilde loves to cook... but visitors and wwoofers will be asked to help cooking... setting the table and to clean...
Our priorities include preparation of the soil, and building a higher fence around the existing vegetable field as well as new facilities for the chickens so that we can start converting the barn into a multi-purpose space. We would like to create an open farm concept, a place where people could come learn about ecological way of living and keeping animals, with different kind of activities and workshops. We are also planning to renovate a place for kickboxing and tabeltennis, as well as black smith facilities.
Together we wish to come back to the life so humans once more can enjoy being together , also give room for individual personal growt and healing on all levels. Together we practise flexibility and each day is a new opportunity .
We would appreciate help in all kind of work around the farm; preparation of the soil, sowing, planting, weeding, harvesting, seed collecting, preservation of food, fencing, building, renovation and forest/wood work (for example cutting trees, making our own materials, wood turning). We would also like to prepare meals together and share our knowledge on healthy way of eating. It would be great if you would have some carpentry, or welding skills but general enthusiasm is more than enough!
We have several rooms with a bathroom next to them. The rooms are suitable also for people who are allergic to cats or dogs.
We would love to exchange our thoughts, ideas and experiences with you, and hope you share our interest in ecological and sustainable way of living. We look forward to hearing from you soon!
