    2 horses, a cats, man 26 with 8 huskies and owner 55 with ten huskies make up the members of our small farm in Telemark. My daughters sometimes (22 and 24) come home from their studies.

    We try to use tools and equipment that others would consider to be exhausted or old but that are still useful to build and develop the place with simple means and local resources.
