Join a budeia (summer farmer) on a rare “tasting journey” – from everyday food in the mountain home, to a prize in the World cheese awards.

Learn about summer farm culture and tradition, and why Norwegian cheeses today assert themselves at the top of the world. Budeia (the summer farmer) tells about life at the summer farm before and now, and takes you on a tour of the summer farm with horses, goats, hens and cats.

We serve a taste of our organic cheeses and kurv (cured sausage), flatbread and summer farm cake with coffee/tea/juice. Experience life on the summer farm and enjoy the tranquility of the mountains.
