crofter

My life is only complete with opportunities to grub with my hands in the earth, to scoop dung and clean the stable, or to make the meadow smooth aided by the fjorden horse Katja. A couple of years ago the horse even drew a cart. The family sometimes spent the holyday with horse and cart. 

The house has a barn and a garden. One could call it a 'property'. There is a vegetable garden, some woody parts, green-fields, flowers and a meadow for animals. All together, it extends to about one and a half acre. Many ingredients for the meals are collected in the garden. There is always a lot of work to do, only pleasant jobs.
