Over five weeks every summer Aarholttunet Gjestegård, a holiday farm in southern Norway, welcomes families from more metropolitan areas to enjoy a week as a farmer. While life on a farm was perfectly normal for most Norwegians generations ago, today farm holidays have shot through the roof as the preferred way to relax. “At the farm the family doesn’t just spend time together, but they actually see each other. Most put away their phones and computers and simply take in the experience together,” says owner and 13th generation farmer Svein Aarholt.
