We drove to Nordfjord to visit our friends at the farm that we visited on our travels around 6 years ago! The drive was through snow as well as a lot of tunnels and we got to see a bunch of new places we hadn’t seen!
On the way, we stopped at a bakery in Rødberg for a cinnamon bun and then we carried on to the farm.
We arrived and had some lunch and some coffee, as is tradition, and we caught up with the family who now have an extra child than they did last time which was lovely to see and amazing to meet them.
We were chatting about badgers being a problem and of course, one appeared! We had to chase it down and trap it.
We walked through the forest and cleared it up, clearing up rubbish and also branches that are in the way. The plan is for them to make it into a field that can be used.
We ended the night with some food and a chat. We got to sleep in the cabin we slept in last time which we loved!
We had some breakfast and then went down to where the lambs and sheep live to stack a bunch of firewood/logs so they can dry and are stored for the winter. We love doing this so this was great!
We had a coffee break, as you should, it was really nice to sit and chat with them whenever we had a chance.
We needed to move some wood planks from a trailer onto the floor so the trailer could be used again. There were a lot of planks but we worked with Martin to get it sorted.
We loved the opportunity to feed the lambs, too! Some had to be bottle fed, so it was a super nice experience and something new!
For dinner, we had a big roast with a big lamb/sheep leg which was slow cooked. Kim obviously didn’t eat it but Curtis did and it was excellent! The vegetables were a delicious side too.
We needed to make a fence to put around the new sheep field, so we helped to get that done after dinner, which was nice and relaxing.
We started with breakfast, as expected and then right when we were getting ready for getting some work done, there was unfortunately a crazy incident with a stabbing in the local town.
This meant that we needed to be vigilant just in case and also the owners of the farm went to see if they could get their kids from school and to see if they can help at all.
The craziness went on for a while and once the evening hit, we walked around and checked all the old fences for holes or trees sitting on them before moving the sheep to their new field!
We had a beer in the sheep field once they’d moved and it was a very nice feeling to see our work come to fruition.
We finished our time there with a curry night! Martin made some really good homemade curry and we even had a visit from one of their friends who sat and had some food with us as well.
We had about 1/2 a day left after this, which will be covered in the next post!
We loved visiting the family again and we can’t wait to head back, see even more farm improvements and help them out.
