Early last week, Norwegian newspapers reported that Haakon and Mette-Marit were having trouble finding farmers for their farm at Skaugum. It has been a long-time plan for the couple that the production at the farm should go ecological.
The application process went through without much trouble. After the prospective farmers took a look at the files, however, they declined the royal job offer. The prospect of turning the farm around to ecological production apparently was a bit troublesome from an economic point of view.
Since the above news came out, however, there have been renewed attention from applicants with an interest in ecological farming, E24 reports. Perhaps, the position will be filled just in time for the new agricultural season?
