“The unique atmosphere out here in the Eidsvoll countryside, coupled with our original products, quality food and beautiful animals, has made Loftet Gardsbutikk a real hit. It’s almost a bit too crazy sometimes,” admits May-Lis Ekstrøm Hoel, who has just organised another meeting on how to cope with Loftet Gardsbutikk’s success. Hoel first opened the shop in 2010, after she fought her way back from a horrific accident that ended her career as a race horse therapist.
