Our farm has been run after ecological and natural principles since more than thirty years. We grow our own vegetables and herbs, produce honey, milk, cheese, eggs, bread and great experiences.
In addition to that music, arts and flowers are essential ingredients on the farm; Rupert is a folk musician and composer and Gaby is also working as florist.
Our place is all about stories, we love to share our and especially to hear yours.
We do all we can to protect and respect the environment we live in and hope you will do the same.
WE are all vegetarians and expect our guest to respect that during the stay.
PLEASE note that we don't consume very much alcohol, but a small glass a day is totally ok.
We offer luxury, but maybe in a different sense; You will be close to great nature and natural food but far away from a lot of other things, so dress well and be prepared ; )
We are Gaby (55) and Rupert (56), from the Faroe Islands and from Germany but since thirty years based up in a hillside in Telemark where we live on the place we love beyond description: Skifterud farm. We are sharing this space with some goats, two horses, a cat, some chickens and all the people that keep on passing by. We love visits, so come!
