  • Description

    Description

    We are a family of five, 3 generations running a farm, and our main activity is catering for guests visiting the farm.
    The hosts; Gudrun & Guttorm, run the farm with all its activities. Our children are currently away studying, but spend much of their summer on the farm. Gudruns mother; Unni 85 years, is also staying on the farm. We keep chickens and ducks as well as our cat and most important; our dog Indie. We also grow some vegetables, fruits, berries and herbs, all ecologically.
    Our project that might involve workaway travellers is to make our garden; THE BEST GARDEN IN THE VILLAGE.
    Our garden needs more attention, and we hope for visits from persons that like gardening and have some experience. We also have a constant need for maintaining buildings.

    We live in the most pitoresque part of Norway, with faboulus possibilities for hiking, rock climbing, fishing in fjords or rivers. Access to the nature from our doorstep. Bicycles and rowing boat available for workaways.
    The hosts will of course proudly guide our travellers to our major sights and things to experience.
    Workaways will stay in a selfcontained flat on the farm, but will be expected to share most meals with the hosts.
