Volunteer with us

We are inviting people from all over the world to come, live, stay and work with us for free.

Volunteers usually work for 5 hours a day on different projects (such as weeding, painting, planting, chopping the wood, harvesting vegetables, repairs, watering, digging, shoveling of the horse manure and others) + as there will be 3 vegetarian meals per day cooked and served we will ask you to participate on that for 1 hour a day (spent on cleaning or cooking). Projects are changing accordingly to season and need. Everyday in the morning you can choose witch project would you like to join.

Hej,
I’ve just left the farm and I am really sad about this. I totally agree with what is already said below. I stayed at the farm for nearly four weeks, although I only wanted to spend two weeks at this farm so that I could spend two further weeks at another farm. After an awful night at the other farm I was most welcomed back with lots of love and I will never forget about that. I was part of their lovely community and I enjoyed the evenings and being together in general so much so that I definitely want to come back. I was able to calm down and I could put a lot of energy in the hard work (it is astonishing what you create!) which involved weeding, chopping and cutting, preparing the meadow for a new field, harvesting, planting, “shaking cats”, and so on and on.

I couldn’t be happier and more grateful for this experience. Thank you, thank you, thank you beautiful people. I’ve had a great time in the farm, it’s a beautiful and quite magical place. 
I really enjoyed the work, which for me consisted mainly in weeding some rows of little fruit trees and a bit of tree planting. It was not too hard, but enough for letting me appreciate in the best way all the wonderful things Søren and Pavlina were cooking.
I already miss the smell of toasted bread when I woke up, the sound of the bell, the wet grass in the morning, the creaky wooden floor, the Christmas lights on the stairs, the movie and games nights, the X-files episodes (!), the Swedish coffee, the pizza making, the walks in nature, the mushrooms, the peanut butter, the shared meals in the kitchen, the sweat, the sunshine, the wind… and I could continue indefinitely. I left a piece of my heart in this farm, it’s a special place. I really hope I could come back one day! :)
For now I just wish you good luck and I hope you’ll succeed in realizing all your projects.
Again, thank you.

Sorry for my late feedback. I spend almost 4 weeks on the farm in July. Although we had a lot of fertilizing to do they where always looking for some new work to get a variety so it never went boring. The work was not too hard it felt good to do something and to see the development of your work. After a satisfying working day we always went to the lake for a swim. The Nature is just stunning. I could get my mind free and just enjoy the peaceful beauty of live. I can highly recommend this Farm! 🙂

 I stayed two weeks at this farm and it was a wonderful time. The work was well organized so I had a lot of time to enjoy the beautiful environment alone and with the other volunteers. There is a lake 5 Min from the farm which is amazing, a beautiful nature reservat in front of the door and a sauna close by. The work was hard, but I enjoyed it so much to be outside and move my body and it was amazing and satisfying to see our results when we were making strawberry fields forever 🙂 It was also great to work on a project together with other people. It was always smelling nice like fresh bread or pancakes in the kitchen and there was always vegan food for me – thank you for that!

Everyone on the farm is warm-hearted and open minded. They really care that you feel comfortable. The farm is placed in a stunning nature, where you can hike, swim in lakes, pick mushroom and blackberries or go to the sauna. The work was tough but satisfying, you can see what you’ve done and after a few days I got used to it. I stayed there for nine days which a really enjoyed and I experienced so many things. Thank you Søren and Pavlina!

This experience in Sweden was my first volunteering, and it was just perfect time. I have succeded in getting joy in the work, so I’m really thankful but not only for that because I have had a lot of chance to live during one month in this wonderful place full of good energies. I met some perfect people, I never forget this time, all the cards games, the sauna’s sessions, and all I did, saw, appreciated. I’m curious to see the farm in few years, when the little trees will become full of fruits 🙂

This was my first volunteering experience. Every day the bell rang at 7 am and we have a huge breakfast. The work was physically hard and one-sided. But all in all it was a beautiful place and a nice experience!

Just back from my travel in Sweden which started at this amazing farm! I’ve been here for five weeks in June and July. In the beginning it took me some time to feel home and to get used to the people on the farm. But from the second week it started to be an amazing time! The work on the farm was sometimes though but in the same time very good! I loved to work with my hands, to give all the energy you have, and after jump in the lake and feel so satisfied! Im very thankful for being hosted, for taking part in the life lived on the farm and of course for all the other nice volunteers and the joy we had!

This was definitely my best volunteering experience so far ! I stayed with Søren and Pavlina for 3 weeks and I had an amazing experience. 
The working days were always fun and it was a good structured work that you had always time in the afternoon to explore the nature in this beautiful place. There are lakes everywhere and you can also take a bike to explore the area. I definitely loved this place and I’m sure that I will come back one day.

I stayed for about two weeks with these beautiful people. They are very dedicated and hard workers, very pure in their own gentle way. This is a very unique and interesting place and I’m very grateful for their hospitality. Søren and Pavlina are full of joy and vitality which was very inspiring for me, how to enjoy food, playing, working, life in its simplicity (although they turned me into a professional larvaskiller.) Hope you are all doing well and good luck with all your ambitions!

I stayed for 2 weeks and had a great time.They built such warm and welcoming community there that it is hard not to feel at home. When I asked before what would be to do I was told that it would be mainly planting etc. In the end it was not much farm work and more building – painting, plastering, digging, building a door etc. But I really don’t mind, since it was fun, I learnt quite a bit and it was awesome to see the project develop every day 🙂 And of course there will be more farming at other times of the year. Also, it was amazing to work with Denise. She always made sure everyone knew what to do and explained in a great way. Then she made sure that you were okay and tried to give you different tasks, so it did not get boring. I hope this does not sound like hidden criticism because it is certainly not. If I ever needed a construction site leader, I would totally want her for the job 🙂

This is a nice place to be. The cozy farm and the lovely people made it easy for me to feel home and very hard to leave. Thats one reason why I stayed much longer than I planned. Now that I left I miss waking up by the ringing of a bell in the early morning knowing that there is a great breakfast waiting for me in the kitchen. This is a very vivid place where you can be yourself, surrounded by friendly and supporting people, be part of a community and learn about life.
