  • Description

    Description

    We are Guus and Laurien and are 55 and 65 years old. In 2004 we moved to from Holland to Norway to realize our dreams to be a small scale farmer.
    We have a small organic farm producing ice-cream from our own milk and fruit. we sell the icecream on markets, festivals and in shops. The milk is from an old breed called "Telemarksfe". We have also horses and beehives. We grow as much vegetables as possible for our own use and are selfsupporting as much as possible.
    We rent out 2 houses for tourists and have a bed & breakfast in our house.
    For the icecreamproduction we have professional employees and we would like you as a workawayer to do non profitable work such as gardening, maintenance of fences, chopping firewood, smaller buildingjobs and picking weed. We also want to give opportunity to learn and experience the local nature and culture like for example learning about beekeeping.
