  • Description


    8 huskies, two horses, a goat, two cats, man 52 living one a small farm in Telemark. Daugters 20 and 22 come home from studies in the summer.
    We try to use tools and equipment that others consider to be exhausted and otherwise build and develop the place with simple means and local ressorses. We have space for more people.
    I have an idea to reconstruct the business I used to have here(guiding, outdoor life, social care, social entrepreneurship cultural events, woodwork ...) and I am also looking for someone who wants to work with this and be here long term.
