  • Description

    Description

    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 86 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 vegetables, fruits, berries and herbs, all ecologically. We make jellies, jam and juices of our products for our own use. The farming we do is not an income source, but part of our life and keeping the tradition of farming culture alive.

    We are only asking for help with our own private garden, and general chores about the house.

    Our project that might involve workaway travelers 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 on the property.
