My name is Adrian!
I have always felt at home by the ocean.
I decided to develop my own homestead by the sea.
My vision was to create a both traditional and creative workplace for myself and people around.
The homestead is situated by the westernmost mainlandpoint in Norway.
We are close to the open ocean, but still protected by the surrounding islands.
The west coast of Norway consist of hundreds of islands, many of them are connected with bridges.
The situation makes it perfect for harvesting from the coast and Islands.
We catch our food by fishing and freediving.
I work in the forests around Bergen as an arborist.
Beside of this, my desire is to live a traditional way of life based on harvesting from the sea, like our forefathers did
