  • Description

    Description

    We are a couple in the early fourties, living on a small farm located in a scenery area with valleys, mountains and fjords in the nearby surroundings. The farm is located in a valley with steep fields of grassland used as forage and grazing areas for sheep, managed by using both traditional and modern farming methods. We live in an old house which is renovated in the last ten years, with a modern household. The house is surrounded by an ornamental and herb garden. We try to be self-sufficient in vegetables, eggs and some meat. We are open-minded and expect you to be gay friendly.
