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.
Help around the house
Our farm is a typical Norwegian west-coast farm and you will learn a-lot about Norwegian culture on the farm.
We live in the most picturesque part of Norway, with fabulous possibilities for hiking, rock climbing, fishing in fjords or rivers. Access to the nature from our doorstep. Bicycles and rowing boat available for workawayers.
The hosts will of course proudly guide our travelers to our major sights and things to experience.
