3. Meet the farmers

Did you know that Trøndelag accounts for about a quarter of Norway's national agricultural production?

Visit one of the region's many quaint farm shops, or pick your own earthly treasures.

Just look for signs that say selvplukk (pick your own) when you are near a farm.

The Innherred district isn't only about growing food, though.

You can also taste and purchase delicious food at numerous eateries and farm shops, and experience art and stunning nature along the famous Golden Road. Or do you maybe fancy a bike ride?
