With no road connection and no cell phone coverage, surrounded by a fjord on one side and mountains on the other, near the edge of Folgefonna, lies Eikemo. And that’s where I’ve been the last few days, together with my dad who grew up there, and my granddad who moved there when he fell in love as young. In this middle of nowhere, there still lives five people who works at the very small and certainly not competitive farms. They have mainly survived by selling goat milk, but recently they have also started with tourism and have their own website. I was very pleased to discover that there appears to be growing activity at this beautiful place where some of my roots are.
