Welcome to Skafferiet – the natural choice for private and corporate gatherings
Skafferiet restaurant at Helgøya is open for groups of 5 to 20 people all year round. Whether you are looking to share a delicious meal with your friends, colleagues, family, or the board of directors, Skafferiet at Hovinsholm farm is an excellent choice. We cater for everything from lunches and dinners to meetings and bespoke workshops in spectacular surroundings. On the menu are rural dishes based on produce from the farm and the local area. A beautiful table can be set outdoors, in Skafferiet’s function rooms, in the stable, or in the large farm kitchen in the main building.
You are guaranteed a personal, rural, enchanting, and unique experience by Mjøsa. During the summer season, you can arrive by boat and moor at Skafferiet’s private jetty. If you have any questions or would like to arrange a visit, please contact us:

Summer café with rural charm
In the height of summer, visitors can enjoy our popular and charming garden café which is set in stunning surroundings and has been a great success ever since it opened in 2008. You are looked after by smiling ladies in apron dresses and men wearing braces and matching sixpence askew. All our ingredients are fresh and guaranteed to please the taste buds. The summer café offers light lunches based on local produce, along with generous helpings of homemade bakery products served at your table, in the garden with views of Mjøsa, or in the conservatory. As a café guest, you are of course welcome to moor at Skafferiet's private jetty.
Combine your visit with a stroll in the area – say hello to the horses and pigs, or just enjoy a calm and peaceful day in the countryside.
In the stable, you will find a small farm shop with the same opening hours as the café.
Summer café opening season
The summer café is open from late June to early August.
Private events, workshops, and Christmas market
Skafferiet offers several rooms for hire suitable for larger private functions: the café building, stable, and barns. Up to 150 people can be catered for. Please contact us to discuss your requirements, and for a non-binding offer.
A range of rural workshops are arranged throughout the year, and we also have an annual Christmas Market with that old-fashioned atmosphere, home-cooked food, wonderful aromas, horse and sleigh rides, and some 70 stalls offering quality food products and handicraft.
