Vang farm’s history
Vang farm enjoys a beautiful setting, with views over Mjøsa. It is run by Per Odd Gjestvang, has been in the family for generations, and has produced vegetables since the 1930s.
The name Vang means “grassy bank or field”, and this old farm is mentioned in history books from pre-Christian times. Its soil is sandy silt and light clay, with a gravelly, warm northerly slope down towards Mjøsa. The climate is favourable, and we enjoy good natural conditions for onion, leek, cabbage, and carrots – which are our main product ranges. Today the farm covers approx. 250 acres of land.
