Håvardsrud Seterliv (Engelsk)

Håvardsrud Seterliv is a traditional Norwegian mountain pasture located in Skirvedalen. Here, children can enjoy themselves, run freely, and get to know the farm animals.

Animal care

The dairy maids working at the mountain pasture demonstrate and explain how to handle the animals. Both adults and children can participate in activities such as moving small animals, taking care of chicks, fetching cows, milking, and feeding.

With joy, children sit on the turf roof, cuddling with the rabbits or hopping from stone to stone with the goat kids and lambs. Feeding the pigs with buttermilk that splashes around is also a favorite activity.

The care of milk, cheese-making, and butter churning is handled by the dairy maid, but visitors can catch glimpses of these processes through the windows of the new dairy, due to food safety regulations.
