The garden at Hovelsrud farm at Helgøya has been restored to its former 1840s glory. Among its accolades are the National Cultural Landscape Award for 2012 and the Europa Nostra Award for 2014.
A tour of this beautiful and spectacular garden complex is highly recommended. Stroll along gravel paths, between berry shrubs and fruit trees, and among pavilions and water features – with the glimmering Mjøsa as backdrop. You will also find a large, plentiful kitchen garden with historic plants and vegetables growing in beautiful rows and patterns. Berries and fruit from the garden are used for juices and jam sold in Hovelsrud’s farm shop and in selected delicatessen.
