Join guided tours of the farmyard and cultural landscape where we share the history of the farm. Learn about food production then and now, the genetic resources in the cultural landscape, practical knowledge, and the interactions between them. Havrå’s cultural landscape contains significant biological assets, and the traditional farming methods form the basis for how we care for and use the buildings and landscape. Through practical labour, Havrå shows how past generations have used local resources to survive.
Havrå contains eight farms, with both of public and private owners. Its land parcels have not been consolidated, and it was a so-called “spade farm”. The farmland is managed according to a plan to restore and operate five different areas, including infields and outfields.
We have summer vacancies every year, to help us in the haymaking process. The work is paid, and you will need to be able to work for 4–5 weeks. The positions will be advertised every spring at www.jobbnorge.no.
