Galåvolden Farm
Gunn Brønnum and Ingulf Galåen
Galåvolden Gård is situated 720 meters above the sea level, 8 km south west from the centre of Røros city. The farm was founded in 1721 of one worker from Røros Kobberverk. He was of German family, and had the family name Catz. Today the farm is run by the 9. and 10. generations after the man who started the farm.  

There have always been cows on the farm. From 2007 they are in a new 2000 m2 building together with the cows from 4 other farms in the village. There are about 100 milking cows and 200 calves/heifers/bulls in this building. And the 5 farmers together have about 170 hektar of grasland. Some of the cattle are from the local cow type Rørosfe. The production is 750 000 liter of milk a year. 700 000 liter goes to Tine and 50 000 liter is used at the farm kitchen. 

The production of eggs started in 1976 with 900 fowl and are today with 15000 fowl. The fowl are located in 2 rooms in the building where the cows was earlier and one new building. All roms have new multi-level system - the best system free range system. 

The eggs are graded, quality controlled and packed the same day as they are laid and then delivered directly from the farm to grocery stores, hotels and institutions in the local district. This gives the best quality for the customer and better income for us as the producer.
