Potato harvest

The original fall break

The original purpose of a week's fall break in Norwegian schools, was to let children stay home on the farm and help the adults with the annual potato harvest. This week was called "potato vacation".

We recreate the old fashioned potato vacation. Welcome to the museum potato fields and join the harvest! We also make tradtional dishes from new potatoes.
