The farmer Ola Haugen was born in 1941. He has lived all his life on Haugen farm in Skogbygda in Vågå. Ola took over the farm from his parents in 1979. He is still a bachelor. Ola lives a simple life.
I met Ola by chance. It was his farmhouse that made me exit the main road and drive down to his courtyard. It was like looking at the farmhouse on Midtre Tune, the farm my father and grandfather are from.
The key was in the door. In the kitchen sat Ola.
