Kårastova at Sivle has recently been restored, the house dates back to approximately 1750. The house was originally constructed in timber, later extended and raised to a second floor. We have been able to expose some of the old timber walls so as to show the old combined with the standard of today. You can enjoy a fantastic view sitting at the long table in the living room, with Stalheimskleiva below and the village of Stalheim and the valley of Brandset directly opposite.

Visitors cater for themselves, but may also book dinner for an evening in Gamlastovo. Currently we run the farm organically, growing various vegetables, potatoes, raspberries, strawberries, redcurrants and blackcurrants. In addition we harvest what nature can provide in terms of berries, mushrooms and greenery. We also have sheep, and a fjording (Norwegian pony) which takes part in the running of the farm and is used for packhorse trips. Sivle Gard has large and excellent uncultivated resources, which are important for sheep farming. The mountain farm belonging to Sivle Gard is located in Berdalen, where the sheep have access to mountain pastures all through the summer. We process meat from lamb and game and serve it in meals at Sivle.
