The joy of cultivation, aesthetics and short-distance raw materials are a common term among Åkerkvinnene.
Åkerkvinnene has their location along the Brunlanes coast (between Stavern and Helgeroa).
Åkerkvinnene consists of Ingunns hage, Søndre Grevle, Skjærgårdshagen, Lillavendel, Kryssgaarden and Grønn Glede.
Søndre Grevle has both vegetable fields and strawberry fields, and free-range pigs that roll around, play, dig themselves down, and enjoy life. They grow up in the forest and enjoy the summer with roots and strawberries.
On the farm you will also find a yellow farm shop, which is the heart of the farm, with a large selection of tasty vegetables and strawberries from its own field and meat from the open-air borders. Local food from small producers is also sold, as well as fruit and other vegetables from Brunlanes.
On the farm, they love all seasons, and the selection in the farm shop follows this. From new potatoes and fresh cabbage, to summer strawberries, autumn vegetables, to Christmas food from the free-range pigs.
Ingunnshage is open during the summer season, and here the joy of gardening will be shared with you. An inspiring garden walk is arranged where you can enjoy beautiful surroundings and get ideas for your own garden room. Inside the garden you will also find a small greenhouse shop with small interior treasures, flower pots and decor. In addition, local artists will exhibit their art in the "little gallery" in the courtyard.
Together with his brother, Halvor Bakke, a garden course is launched for you who want to create an outdoor space you can really enjoy. Read more about the course here.
At Kryssgaarden you will find a farm sale where you can buy organic apples, red juicy Celina pears, raspberries, apple juice and outdoor cucumber directly from the field. Kryssgaarden is concerned with being able to offer several varieties of berries and fruits that provide variety of flavours and areas of use.
Kryssgaarden offers self-picking berries for visitors, but if you prefer to order the berries, you can do so. Kryssgaarden also offers self-picking of conventional sweet corn and outdoor cucumber.
