We who run this small and idealistic hobbyfarm is a married couple, Leif Kongestøl and Hulda Bohlin.
Leif manages an instutution for health and care. He grew up on an island northwest of Bergen and took over his grandparents' farm in Ænes by the Hardanger fjord after living in Oslo and Bergen. Hulda is a Swedish painter and art tutor. For several years she had an art studio in Rosendal the nearest village, famous for the beautiful manor house The Barony Rosendal.
