  • Description

    Description

    I am a 32 year old architect who has just moved back to our old family farm. I belive we got a really beautiful place here, with historical buildings and garden, fields, pastures and forest, along Norways largest lake Mjøsa, close to Oslo. I love to share it. I will continue to develope the farm in a positive, social and sustainable direction, with care for both the heritage and the natural envirmonment. Volunteer work here will typically be with our sheep, pigs, the organic garden, fence and building maintenance and different restoration projects. Caring for biodiversity is also an important focus for me, and maybe for you?
