About

Hei WWOOF'S.

Tasks are varied and depending on time of the seasons will be helping us here with Firewood, Feeding/Watering/Manure removal of various animals, Bagging sawdust, Training (in stages) Brushing and Hoof work on large Working horses/foals, Fishing Brown Trout with nets/rods then cooking the catch, Sustainable thinning of the woodlands including making brash piles/bonfires, Cleaning old fields of weed bushes, stones and fixing ditches, Making compost/potting plants, Clearing snow and leveling gravel, Electric Fencing installation, High Pruning Trees, Building a portable goose shed, Starting a new organic vegetable patch............ Plans in 2018 are a herd of rare breeds Geit og Gris.

We are a manual run place so often use wheelbarrows to move materials some distance on reasonable level ground.

Those planning to come here in wintertime will NEED to have good thermals and warm socks/gloves as it can be down to below -30's C at night. Boots ice spikes also sensible to use to prevent falling down. A good wide brim hat (with a removable midge netting is needed at times) as summertime temperatures can be in the +30's C.

WWOOF'S will have a room with nice views of the mountains and lake and a relaxing inside/outside seating area. All meals hot/cold (including some Norwegian produced foods) are with us but not on Sundays. (visitors are welcome to do some of the cooking as we like cultural meals such as curries)

We hope that people will keep the premises clean and help out with basic cleaning/washing up/recycling chores! Should someone wish to have some booze to consume at the weekend then we suggest purchase at duties free shopping as VERY expensive in Norge.

Those with safe horse, chainsaw/clearing saw, dry stone walling experience would be most useful but all are welcome as we also use axes/bow saws/various hand tools and are happy to explain how this is done. (Please MAKE SURE you have steel toe cap/mid-sole boots/wellies with good grip, warm gloves and full WATERPROOF clothing as we are outside in ALL safe conditions).

We are looking for honest, reliable, respectable, sociable, flexible, interesting, people with a good positive attitude and wanting to gain new rural experiences whilst in the special natural environment of the southern Norwegian mountains.

Ystesund is a full time Agricultural/Forestry business so we will be outside around 8 hrs. (with drinks/toilet/lunch breaks sometimes cooking on a wood fire) Sundays and all evenings are free leisure time to explore/relax and welcome to take the dog on a long walk. There is much to see and do in the local area and a bicycle/canoe (with life jackets)/snow shoes/skis are available to borrow with care. Free WIFI available but bad mobile/radio signals here so we have no TV.

Nearest sea ports to Europe are Kristiansand and Langesund and both Colorline/Fjordline ferries arrive from Hirtshals in Denmark.

Nearest airport is Sandefjord Torp and flights from Europe are around 1.30hrs with bus connections to the end of road.

BUS:- nor-way.no
TRAIN:- nsb.no

NON SMOKERS! (including electronic devices) Health/Safety/Insurance Reasons.

We hope in springtime 2018 to have a purpose built basic cabin for WWOOF's to use as the large 8 beds house will then be rented to sustainable tourists.

WWOOF'S will need to confirm the reasons to visit here, the processes wanting to learn, the contribution that can be given and have a good informative profile we can also read to avoid possible misunderstandings.

WWOOF NORGE insist all visitors have current travel insurance (in case of sickness/accident) to cover the period at the Hosts place. Please use the word "FRIVILLIG" in the initial Hosting message so we know people have read and understood this long description. Tusen Takk. Paul og Andrea
