About

Hi potential Wwoofer and welcome to our farm on the beautiful island of Samsø!!

We are really happy that you clicked in here to read more about us and the farm. And if you're ready for some good, hard physical work and to learn a lot - please read the whole description.

The people:
We are Hester and Bjarke, a couple of young, recently graduated organic farmers who have started a 5-year lease of Yduns Have. Hester is from England and Bjarke is from a different island in Denmark.

On the farm we strive to work with as diverse a production as possible, focusing on establishing a strong relationship to the local community. Together we want to explore how we can create a modern, economically viable and, for all living things (also humans), sustainable farm. We have big plans of making the farm as beautiful and beneficial as possible with edible hedges and flowers for bees.

The farm:
The farm and it’s soil have been organic since 1987 and is famous as a pioneering organic farm in Denmark. The farm was bought by a foundation whose goal is to encourage young farmers to move to the island to try out their skills as self-employed farmers.

The farm is 14 hectares and we grow on 10 of them - the rest is clover, trees and buildings. We have over 100 different vegetables, berries, herbs and fruits.
There is also 400 sq.m green house where we grow tomatoes, cucumbers, aubergines, chilies and other ”exotic” crops. We sell in our farm shop, run a summer and winter CSA with around 50-60 members and will be selling to schools and canteens on the mainland once a week.

What you can expect:
Hard physical work, learning (a lot) about vegetables and community/people-power, the good island life with unique nature and friendly people all around!

Work:
We will try our best to accommodate you so you feel like you get the most out of your stay. Also if you have special interests or skills you want to explore/live out.
There will be a diverse spectra of things to do, depending on the season. You can expect seeding, weeding, harvesting, packing, filling up the farm shop(s), maintenance on buildings and land, deliver vegetables to the islands restaurants and greeting visitors, tourist, and CSA members :-)

Food:
We provide three meals a day. The diet is vegetarian/vegan and is mostly from our own farm. We eat lunch and sometimes dinner together. If you like making food, baking bread etc, we fully support that! We like experimenting and sharing.

Sleeping:
We provide beds in a pavillion, where wwoofers stay together. You can also bring your own tent.
- Bring own sheets and towel.

What we expect:
- 30/35 working hours/week. The schedule can vary in regards of the weather and season, but we usually start work at 7/8 in the morning.

It's important for us to write that we are a professional farm with lots of work to get done. If you want a chill and relaxed vacation picking flowers and pat a goat - look at some of the other wwoof-hosts. During the 6-8 hours/day you work we expect that you give your best and work hard if needed. Farm work is hard work at times, but also very satisfying. As long as your up for the challenge - the food tastes better and you sleep like a baby :)

What to do in spare time:
Samsø is well known for it’s fantastic nature, it’s long beaches and the most sun hours in Denmark! Borrow a bike and the ocean is only a few minutes away. Hang out with the other Wwoofers and the other guests and people on the farm. We might arrange a few common activities and excursions throughout the week.

Insurance: Make sure your own travel insurance covers work and spare time on a farm :-)
