As third-generation fruit farmers at Lindheim farm, located in Gvarv in Telemark, Eivin Eilertsen and Ingeborg Lindheim wanted to be able to live off the family farm. But their fruit production was not enough. “We had a lot of fruit, and it was important to us to stay true to our farm’s traditions and keep the production going,” Eivin Eilertsen says. “But we also realised that we could not live off fruit alone. We had to do more, and that was when beer came into the picture.”
