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.

You will be abel to explore one of the most beauty places in Norway, with a wonderful nature and hiking abilities. We would offer you the opportunity to learn about Norwegian culture and language. We would share our experience how to run a small scale farm, and a mostly self-sifficient life, but without a romantic view of living.
We are in the beginning of develope a farm business, which include both new buildings and new fields for food production. Plans for the season is to complete the work with a renovated greenhouse, establish new fields for growing vegetables, renovating of old bulidings and establish a forest garden. Regular work is to take care of animals, haymaking, weeding, maintenance work, gardering, cooking and housework. We would especially appreciate people who want to help us in the spring time, with tasks in the greenhouse and planting. If you are interested in permaculture design, forest garden and holistic management we appreciate your engagement. We of course welcome all types of people with interests in organic small-scale farming and horticulture.
