We are a couple that run a guesthouse/hostel and small scale juiceproduction in our fruitgarden by the fjord in western Norway. Every year we have people helping us with running the hostel, doing gardenwork, and helping with the juiceproduction. We also have a big ecological vegetable garden, and this is a livestyle project for us. We offer a unique oppourtunity to do varied work while living in a very beautiful landscape.
Being part of a team, working both indoors and outside, learning a lot about fruit and berry production at a small scale. In the hostel you can meet trevelers from all over the world. Our place is situated in a small village that allows you to take part of the life in the village. But - Norwegian culture is all a about being outside - and tehre are plenty of oppourtunities for that.
