Along the fruit- and ciderroute of Ulvik, you will find three individual farms that offer tours of their facilities where you will be taken through the process from fruit on the trees to the finished bottled produce. The three farms all produce their own apple juice and cider, and also offer their own specific products. Ulvik frukt & cideri offers several different varieties of apples in its production and also produces a cider with a lower alcoholic content. Syse farm produces various fruit, jam and meat-produce in addition to producing both apple juice and cider. Their products are available in their shop, which is part of the economusée-group. Lekve farm has a large production of apple juice and cider but has also started a production of apple brandy.
During the tours, you will be shown the process of producing apple juice and cider along with tasty samples of the farm-produce.
