Rølia is an organic run farm and is located in beautiful surroundings in Henning, 8 km east of Steinkjer.
Rølia is a perfect place to arrange day meetings, birthday celebrations, Christening parties and other private parties and events.
Meetings and events
Soak in the cosy atmosphere in the quirky “Kårenden”* in the farm's «Trønderlån»** from 1770! Sometimes we run a café here, other times it is used as a meeting room or a function room. “Kåreinnin” can quickly be adapted to meet your needs and is best suited for meetings and smaller functions for up to 25 – 30 people.
“Finstua” (the parlour) in Trønderlåna can also be used as a group room or meeting room.
Down to earth, generous and enthusiastic – this describes Rølia, the hosts and the food perfectly.
Our menu depend on the kind of raw materials we have access to - preferably organic, short travelled (local) and untravelled (produce that has never left the farm), such as the elk shot in the woods just behind the farm, cloud berries picked at Henningvola or flour from grain grown in the fields around us. We are inspired by the old days; traditional dishes, old fashioned desserts, simple ingredients and pure flavors characterize our food. We are especially proud of the delicious bread, baked with grains of the olden days, served with almost any kind of food we serve.
Baking with ancient grains
The farms Rise, Rølia, Bjerkem and Grandan Midtre have joined forces to cultivate, grind and sell organic ancient grains*** through the company Gullimunn AS. Gullimunn also offer baking courses providing theoretical and practical knowledge in the art of baking with ancient grains. The instructors are Torunn Hernes Bjerkem og Cecilie Røli.
Welcome to Rølia!
