Summer farmer for a day

Live 24 hours as an original Norwegian summer farmer. This is a unique opportunity to live like a farmer in the summer like in the old days. There are still some active summer farms left in this part of Norway, and now you can take part in it. Try to milk a cow, and make cheese and butter from it straight away. There is no car coming and collecting the milk up at this off-grit summer farm, so you will have to make products from the milk straight away to conserve it.
