  • Description

    Description

    We are an artist couple, living on a small holding farm, situated in Skiptvet one hour south of Oslo, Norway. We aim to live in an echological way. We have one dog, one cat, three chickens and one rooster, three riding and driving horses. We farm vegetables, hay, berries and fruits for our own keeping. The farm is under development and we are in the process of rebuilding the barn. Besides this we do visual art projects.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    There is nice forest trekking opportunities directly from the farm. Moose and deer live in the forest.
    Norway´s biggest river Glomma is a 5. min. drive or 15. min. bike ride from the farm. We have a small rowing boat. The closest town is Askim, 20 min. with bus.
    Søssa can teach riding and horsemanship on the farm horses and natural horse care.
    As we are educated visual artists, gardner and landscape architect, it is natural to share our knowledge in these topics as well.
