Solstad Bed & Breakfast!

Big news on the farm. We’ve opened a B&B in the beautiful house that my Aunt built on the farm. It is relly nice and comfortable. There is information in five languages on the facebook page, and pictures in the photoalbum on this site as well.

The B&B has a good environmental profile, and uses as much organic and local produce as possible for the breakfast. Of course Fogdegården’s own organic eggs. The B&B has three double rooms with single beds, one with a separate balcony, one with it’s own bathroom, the other two share a bathroom in the hallway. Reasonable prices, n.kr. 430 for one person, double room from n.kr. 630. Breakfast n.kr. 150 per person.

Finished Cultural Heritage restoration project

Finally the conservation-restoration of the stone slate roof of Drengestua – the “farm hand’s house” is finished and approved by the Norwegian Cultural Heritage Fund. In 2008 the roof on the beautiful little house had done it’s job. Now it is fully restored to it’s original state. Thank you to everyone who has helped out – volunteers, local craftsmen, and the State conservationists.

All Quiet on The Western Front

.. meaning no new posts from the farm for a long time. The reason is – we’ve been working, working, working. There’s always lots of general work on the farm, getting the crops in, tending the animals, keeping the farm areas nice. But in addition there have been a lot of really big projects going on, and nice advances and breakthroughs made as well.
