Cheese and ice cream
Gangstad Farm Dairy is well worth a visit. They have won numerous awards for their cheeses. Drop by the farm yard and enjoy a cooling ice cream or something delicious to drink in the charming court yard. Maybe you will be tempted to bring some cheese and crackers home?
At Berg Farm their meat produce is processed into tempting sausages flavoured with locally produced caraway and other exciting spices, Christmas belly pork and pork chops to name a few. Local meat is served at several dining places in the region.
In the old days each farm had its own recipe and secret ingredients. This tradition is today upheld by Inderøy Farm Brewery and Gulburet. Malt and hops of good quality helps give the beer rich flavour and character. Gulburet produces beers on tap. You may even buy bread with barley mash and beer.
Inderøy Caraway is the inspiration to restarting an ancient tradition; aquavit distilling. 119 years after the last bottle was tapped at Sundnes distillery, the tradition resurface at Berg farm, with enthusiasm and forgotten knowledge. What could be better than aquavit and ribs from the same manufacturer?
Gorge yourself on vegetables in all shapes and colours, cultivated under the trønder sky at Ystgård garden centre. Or enjoy them ready prepared at one of the dining places along the Golden Route.
It takes 12 minutes to drive E6 between Røra and Vist. The Golden Route takes 8 minutes more .... or a day, a week, a whole summer, a whole life ...
