About

We are a young couple in our sixties and proud owners of a fruit farm in southeastern part of Telemark region (district called Sauherad).

Main focus on the farm is apples and berries, but we grow many other fruits and vegetables like pears, plums, cherries, potatoes, tuberous plants, onions, herbs & spices...

Some of the fruits we preserve and store for the winter season. We also produce our own apple juice, compote, jams and dry fruits.

We consider ourselves outgoing, hospitable and friendly.

We try to follow traditional Norwegian way of life, but we are very much interested in other countries and cultures as well. We also seek to increase life quality, reduce workload, and to meet new people with similar interests and the wwoof network was considered as a creative addition.

Both of us have full time jobs.

Our home is a temporary foster care provider. Torild is working with children, which means that most of the time kids are present in our house. Before you arrive, you need a police check from your home country to prove that you have not committed any criminal acts.

Kjell Ivar works in a national plant health center; a leader in producing climate-adapted, disease control and genuine planting material of horticultural crops for Norwegian conditions.

We can be flexible regarding the work hours but usually there is a unwritten schedule to work for six hour, five days a week. Weekends are off duty, but if you would like to keep yourself busy we won't mind:)

There are various possibilities with accommodation. Camping caravan, tents, guest house...
Food: We have no special diets, and serve a combination of organic and conventionally produced food.
Please let us know in advance if you have any experiences or specific skills like carpentry, driving a tractor, construction work, forestry work, gardening etc.

Oh, and let's not forget to mention our two dogs Dino and Jasmin! They are very peaceful and they will enjoy long walks. :)

If you would like to try our hospitality we firmly believe you will have a positive experience!
