GEOFOOD PRODUCERS MAGMA GEOPARK

Brown bees honey  

Magma Geopark - Norway

The Nordic brown bee is considered to be an ecotype or subspecies of the old European bee. The Nordic brown bee is the only original bee race in Northern Europe, and is nowadays listed as endangered. In the pure breeding areas in Flekkefjord, Lund, Sokndal and Sirdal, it is forbidden to keep other bees than a brown bee. Here are the the natural borders such as mountains and seas that isolate the stock and prevent mating from other bee breeds.

Honey is for sale at the Magma Unesco Global Geopark office, Elvegaten 23-Egersund.

 The Norsk Ørret 

Magma Geopark - Norway


The trout from Sirdal is produced in the cold, clean mountain water in Sirdalsvatnet. This huge inland lake passes through Flekkefjord and enters Lundevatnet on its travel to the North Sea. This trout is called Norwegian Brown Trout. It is the same kind of trout that started swimming in our mountain lakes after the last Ice Age 10 000 years ago. The cold mountain water makes the fish grow slow, and this gives the meat a solid consistency and a unique quality.

 The Nyyyt AS 

Magma Geopark - Norway

In Nyyyt AS, we work with local farmers to deliver the best quality meat. Most of the meat we deliver is hand-picked. In our modern premises in Røysland Gaard in Bjerkreim we process the meat. We supply hotels, restaurants and shops.

Our motto is “everything starts with the farmer” and the close cooperation with the farmers are the most important success criterion for us. We produce quality products of lamb, cattle and pig.

In 2018, for the second year in a row, we were finalists in the prestigious competition “Det Norske Måltid” with Pinnasteik – from the traditional Svartfjes sheep. This is a breed that keep the local protected moors fertile and thriving by grassing, which is entirely in line with Nyyyt’s goal of producing sustainable meat products.

In order to make the best use of our raw materials and premises, we are also in the process of producing a variety of local sausages. Investing years of expertise in traditional food, we look forward to develop more quality products in the future.

Products are on sale in the local supermarket.

 The Skadberg Gård

Skadberg Gård is idyllically located at Skadberg on Nordra Eigerøy in Eigersund municipality. Here Magnus Østebrød grows apples using new cultivation methods in moraine that remained after the last ice age about 10 000 years ago. He focuses on varieties that pollinate each other, and you find the species Aroma, Discovery and Katja on his farm.

Around the apple field is a flower meadow with wild flowers.

 

The flower meadow attractspollinating insects, so the apple trees and the flowers in the meadow can benefit from each other. If you want to “own” a square meter of flower meadow at Skadberg Gård, you can contact Magnus!

The apple trees at Skadberg Gård bloom in May, and are harvested in September and October.

 

The result is 100% freshly squeezed apple juice!
