    This is an old farm situated in the southern Norway, in the forest and close to the lake. Our farm uses solar energy.We are certified by organisation DEBIO of NORWAY, Ecological farming, Gras feeding cows, this is a small farm and non profit, we do not sell any products ,we only run the farm because we love to live in nature, eat ecologic food, take care of nature and animals, and we are working hard to get self sufficient ecological food and electricity

    We like very much the kulture exchange, meeting new people and learning them life on a farm.

    Sharing different ideas, traditions, and knowledge.
    We like to cook and enjoy healthy food and like a good conversations at the dinner table, we often ask helpers to cook food what they like and if they have some good food from their own countries.
    We like our helpers to integrate in local society and interact with us.
