    Description

    Hi! My name is Haavard .I live in the beautiful valley of Angedalen. Im 31 years old and work as a handyman and farmer for a living. I also cooperate with a fellow farmer. Together we have a local farmshop. There we sell meat, wool, handcrafts ++.

    It's a really nice view in the valley, and the worlds freshest air. I live close to the wild untouched forrest,but still only 8km from the nearest grocerystore. My farm is in Foerde (Førde) in Sogn og Fjordane. The nearest airport is called Førde (Foerde) airport.

    This is a paradise if you like mountainhikes both in the summertime aswell as the wintertime. Førde is located in the end of a Fjord, and the local river is wellknown for its salmonfishing-opportunities.
