Andelslandbruk is known as community-supported agriculture in English. At Mandalen Andelslandbruk, we collaborate with local farmers and producers. Brit Mjåland from Mjåland Gård provides our vegetables shares. Her farm also serves as our meeting point, where we come together to sew seeds, harvest and get to know one another. Beef and pork come from Birte Usland at GressliGodt. Lamb comes from George Smedsland of Gården Smedsland. We also offer a honey share from Ulf Arne Meistad.
There is a one-time membership fee of 400 NOK. Once you are a member, you choose the shares you would like each year. This year, shares are available for vegetables, honey, beef, pork and lamb. You can become a member and buy shares here.
Everyday Monday, Mjåland Gård is open to the public from 12:00 until 19:00. Members can come during this time to help tend our gardens, meet others and – starting in June – harvest their weekly vegetable share. Weekly delivery of vegetables is also available in Mandal, Søgne and Kristiansand for an additional cost. All meat shares are delivered to Mjåland Gård in the fall.
If you are interested in membership but do not speak Norwegian, please contact Elie Gardner for more information: firstname.lastname@example.org.
