The Bygday Peninsula is one of the oldest cultural landscapes in Norway and was once the only inhabited place in the inner part of Oslofjord. The first Cistercian monks settled here, and in 1532 the land was confiscated as a Royal farm (Bygdø Kongsgård on the map), which still exists today. The farm covers an area of 200 hectares, 74 of them are used for farmland, the rest-as pastures. The farm has 60 cash cows, 90 calves, 30 sheep and 9 ponies. The farm is open to the public, as well as everyone can taste dairy products that go to the table of the Royal family. However, it is also available in regular stores.
