With many different types of animals, big and small, including 25 dairy cows and 35 yearlings, several horses, some rabbits, two cats and two dogs, the owner of Skarsmoen Gård, Merethe Næsbø, certainly has plenty to keep her busy. “It is a lifestyle,” she says. “I moved here in 2013 with an urge to start a new life, and it’s been a steep learning curve but I have enjoyed it immensely.” When she bought the farm it came with bed & breakfast facilities with seven rooms in the main building, as well as six cabins, which she rents out to visitors. “I think the variety in accommodation options is good,” says Næsbø.
