Things to do in the area if you don't have a car:
Explore the garden and forest - Feel free to play in your private garden or explore the larger park that is shared between all tenants at the farm. There is a wast forest around the farm, with plenty of paths and places to stop for a cup of hot chocolate by a camp fire. There are mushrooms and berries to pick, roe deer to watch (or hunt if you visit in season), wildlife to explore and silence to listen to.
Meet the goats - We have a small flock of goats that really appreciate visitors. Feel free to pet them or feed them braches from shrubs or bushes outside the fence. Please do not feed them food for humans, except what you might find in a garden or in a field.... and please switch the electric fence off before you touch it.... and back on after.
Borrow bikes, skis or a canoe - We have a canoe with room for two adults and two children, a couple of bikes and several pairs of cross-country skis to borrow. We also have a small boat with motor for rent.
Explore the town of Moss - Moss is accessible by bike or bus. The bus stop is a short walk from the farm (around 15 minutes) and the bus is around 30nok (€3) and will take you Moss in 12-15 minutes. Each adult can bring four children free of charge (15y.o. or younger). With a little planning, you may hitch a ride with one of our cars one or both ways, we usually have at least one car in each direction every day, and two cars in each direction on workdays.
Oslo, Fredrikstad and Hvaler is also accessable by public transportation, but requires a little planning. Please let us know if you need some help in planning your travel arrangements.
