Organic Herb Farm in Norway

I visited this organic herb farm about two years ago. The farmer was very laid back and happy to show us around, his soil has been organic for 25 years.

 

Herbs in the organic valley

There is a centre for local school children to stay in dormitories while they learn about growing food and herbs organically.

He grows a lot of interesting herbs, including Rhodiola rosea – he even gave me some seeds….

What to give them when they come home from school?

Fresh veg, cottage cheese and cream. A surprise hit…

…and they are asking for cakes, biscuits and [today] Dolly Mixtures?

I just tried a new thing. I tipped cottage cheese, yoghurt and cream into a dish. Added chopped cherry tomatoes, snipped salad onions, chopped mange tout and french beans. I stirred in some cracked black pepper and a bit of salt, placed it in the centre of the table and said try some on a Ryvita.

So Henry did, and he loved it. He called it de-licious.

Which isn’t bad from an 11 year old boy.

And he forgot about the Dolly Mixtures….
