Welcome to us here by lake Mjøsa – come in, come in! Nowhere is Christmas and advent more special than at the Mjøsa Farms – at least in our opinion. Traditions have been passed down from generation to generation, and this unique cultural heritage is something we love to share.
With Nes as our starting point, Helene will welcome us to the beautiful Kvarstad farm in all its Christmas splendour and serves us the traditional Christmas porridge. The farm has its own shop where you will find treats like homemade chocolate confectionery! After the coffee, there is a short informal talk on the history of the farm, and an opportunity to browse the farm shop.
We continue to the lovely mediaeval Nes church in Tingnes, where a local guide will meet the group and will join you on a round-trip of Helgøya island. Along the route, you will learn about the island’s history, about the Vikings who lived at Hovet at the southern tip, about the farms, and about the cultural heritage sites – and maybe you get to hear one or two local legends. The guide will stay with you until you have arrived at Hovinsholm farm.
Here, at the stately Hovinsholm farm, you will be served a Christmas platter with flavours and colours based on the farm’s own and other local produce. Then follows coffee along with the homemade treat of the day. There is also a farm shop from which you can buy Skafferiet’s and other local products.
