Our beautiful farm is located on the one of the most famous fjords of Norway-Hardangerfjord. Even the most demanding explorers can please their needs here. Well known Trolltunga,Queensroute,Folgefonna(ice cap),Hardangervidda National Park…or you can simply be fascinated by the beauty of blooming apple orchard and cultural traditions. Area where we live is famous for its tasty cuisine, fishing and cider.
My wife and me live on the fruit tree orchard, where we are growing organic plums&apples and the sweetest cherries on the fjord). We also have a vegetable garden where we grow our delicious food. Have two huge glasshouses where we usually grow some of our vegetables.
We don’t have animals on the farm except "free range" cat and bees.
The dream about the farm is to become as sustainable as possible and host people for retreats,their holidays or just relax time. That's why we have started rental business 2 years ago.
If you are enthusiastic about moving towards your goals, exciting about other people, like to work in team, would like to experience farm lifestyle you are more than welcome. We are looking for motivated people who are hardworking, of course, positive, compassionate, kind, creative and responsible. Together we can work and rest, dream and create, explore and enjoy.

January – March : It is mostly time for pruning trees. It is an art in itself and takes time to learn, if you want to help out here, we prefer you to stay at least two month, since it takes long time learning. In March we also start preparing for planting season: cleaning up the glasshouses, planting seeds, planning vegetable garden.
April : Picking branches from the pruning, fixing vegetable garden.
May : Cutting grass, fixing around the farm, planting.

We are located in a fjord so there is many hiking possibilities with a breathtaking view. Can fish and swim in the fjord. There is two museums close by. Hardanger museum and Agatunet, Agatunet is a "klyngetun" and the oldest house is dated back to the 1200`s. we also have a stone ( Håhaugsteinen )that have carvings in it that can date back 3000 years. Amazing to think that it have been people living here so many years ago.
