About the farm and the people
Faråsen farm - The ultimate experience!
The farm has been owned by the family since 1984, when Ruben's father bought the farm on the open market. They have since built a new barn, fenced around the entire property, including forest, built up a suckler herd, cultivated more land, made forest roads and ponds and much much more. That is why we have named the concept Tretoppgård.
Ruben and Merete took over in 2017, and have since worked to further develop the farm. This has now ended up in the rental of treetop cabins and experiences on the farm.
On the farm we have about 20 suckler cows of the breed limousine. These are for meat production. The calves go with their mother out on the farm pasture and in the forest all summer, and get all the milk the cow produces. All in all, we are on about 50 cattle. Based on season, we also have cup lambs and small calves. We are now arranging for hens, and we look forward to offering fresh eggs straight from the farm.

Since the treetops are located by a farm, pets are unfortunately not allowed , because dangerous situations can arise.
Born in 1972, Ruben is the father of four, a farmer and machine contractor with a lot of imagination and big dreams. Has been through 2.5 years of cancer treatment, and is now 100% healthy! After this journey, it became more important to make dreams come true, and so the idea of treetop cabins was conceived!
Merete was born in 1980, trained as a preschool teacher and is a mother of 4 with all that entails of driving, picking up, training, meetings, school, kindergarten, etc. She now works reduced in kindergarten to be able to work more with animals, homes and cabins. Together they have a girl born in 2006, and three boys born in 2007, 2012 and 2017. Lots of life and lots of good help!
