Together with his wife Lene, Jon Leira bought Snerting Ranch in the stunning scenery of Inderøy in 2006, having worked on a cattle ranch in Australia in 1997 where he greatly enjoyed the flexible lifestyle and comfortable pace of work. “It was a completely new arena for us both, and we had to do a lot of work on it to get it up and running,” says Leira. “We both wanted to make it somewhere people could come for a nice experience, so we turned it into a visitor farm where youngsters could come and take part in activities.”
