Nestled within the breathtaking fjords of Norway, in the Sunnmøre region, lies Skarbø Gard, an apple and cider farm that is a testament to the harmony of tradition and craftsmanship.

Join our food and beverage team had the privilege of experiencing the unique offerings of Skarbø Gard, a place where the past and present merge to create something truly spectacular. Owned by Kristine and Carlos, Skarbø Gard is not just any farm; it's an institution that carries the legacy of eight generations.

The land stretches from the serene fjord up to the summer farm in the mountains, where the cows roam freely in the pastures during the warmer months. The backdrop of Smørhola mountain adds a majestic touch to the already picturesque landscape.

The emphasis on sustainability and self-sufficiency was evident in every aspect of the farm's operations.

The highlight of the visit was undoubtedly the tasting experience. Sitting under the open sky, surrounded by the natural beauty of the fjords, we indulged in a meticulously prepared lunch that showcased the farm’s produce. The cheeses, each with its unique flavor profile, were perfectly complemented by the variety of ciders, ranging from crisp and refreshing to rich and complex. It was a celebration of flavors that spoke volumes of the craftsmanship and dedication of Kristine and Carlos.
