The fram is run today by Linda Bjørvik Vørøs and Robert Vørøs,
together with our 5 children and Linda's parents, who also live on the farm.
The farm has been in the family for a long time and we have eager children,
who want to take over the business after us.
-Our farm is situated in the beautiful Langedalen valley in Bergen Municipality.
In total we are 11 people who areassociated with the operation of our business.
With us, all people and animals will enjoy themselves!
OPERATION ON THE FARM AND OUR ANIMALS
Life as a farmer gives the feeling of creating something - for us this is circular economy in practice and that we are an important contributor to the environment.
Linda and Robert have their entire working day on the farm, the days have fixed points and there are always new exciting things to work with.
Our animals are what we spend the most time on and we are sure that happy animals are the best for everyone!
We have three types of animals with us at Løvaas farm; Deer, Mangalitsa pig and chickens.
We also have a dog called Alfonso and two cats.
The deer on the farm is of the Norwegian deer type - and we have put up fences around large areas, where it does what it likes best - namely grazing.
With us, the deer live in natural deer terrain and have both meadow and forest to graze in.
In summer and spring, the deer eats on pasture, in winter it gets grass harvested on the farm.
This gives the animal good nutrition and the meat gets the natural flavor the deer should have.
We have colts, calves and the buck BAMBO, who is the big boss in the area where our deer graze.
In the autumn of 2022, a modern slaughterhouse for the deer will be completed, and the first meat will be ready for delivery to VAREGGA Mat from Bergen AS.
The pigs on the farm are of the Mangalitsa (woolly pig) type.
Our pigs are distributed over several grazing areas, where the pigs eat; grass, roots, bushes and anything else they find in the ground.
The meat from this breed of pig has a unique marbling and has a very good taste.
The animals graze outside for 640 days and can go into their own house whenever they want.
The hens on the farm are of different breeds, all are Debio approved and lay organic eggs.
The hens live in the yellow hen house and have nice outdoor areas where they can strut.
On the farm, we produce vegetables, which are produced organically.
Our potatoes are of the Juno, Carolus, Mandel, Beate and Kerrs Pink types.
The potatoes are a seasonal product and are available from VAREGGA Mat from Bergen AS in season.
Preparation of new pastures and fence routes is part of the development on the farm.
This gives us the opportunity to produce firewood,
which we dry and pack in sacks for sale to customers in Bergen.

Many large roe deer move down to our farm to sniff the hinds we have with us.
This means a lot of rut roar and tough battles on and around the farm, to win the pack's favor.
