Since they have a farm do they grow their own crops and sell them to the people or whoever and donate the income they made to their charities? Or is it just a hobby type of thing?

Eaither way at least they're do something in their spare...

Skaugum is a (quite big after NOrwegian standards) farm, it is privatly owned bm the Crown Prince, like all other farms in Norway they get farm subsedies based on the size (and possible production not quite sure) The farm is run by an agronomist, he has three co-workers. They produce meat, Milk and grain
From Kongehuset
Quote:
The Skaugum estate in Asker southwest of Oslo is run as a modern, forward-looking farm under a farm manager with 3 permanent assistants. The main products are grain, milk and meat. The farm is self-supporting and any profit is re-invested. The farm consists of about 120 acres of cultivated land and about 125 acres of forest, as well as roughly 135 acres of rented tilled land. Half the area is used for grain and the rest for feed production and pasture. In 1992 a new modern byre (based on environmental and free range principles) was taken into use. The livestock consists of 125 head of cattle and the milk quota amounts to 214,000 litres per year. The bull-calves go to beef production, while the heifers are reared as dairy cows for milk production.

Anyway, you do not get rich farming in Norway

And I doubt think Haakon and Mette-MArit spend their spare time in the cowshed:p but they have a horse and they recently said the childen had gotten a bunny each. In the video from Ingrids first birthday you can see the horse and see them visiting the cowshed

This post was already posted in Haakon and Mette-Marit Currents Events by Fairy Tale, but because the photos were taken in Skaugum, I think maybe can be posted also here (it has a very good picture about the library of Skaugum):

An other view of Skaugum:

This room is near the entrance hall, against the staircase: http://princesseslives.blogspot.hu/2...t-skaugum.html
Also in this album can you find some pictures about this dinner (you can see a little bit also from the entrance hall of Skaugum): http://www.kongehuset.no/c29785/foto...13&album=95695

The kitchen in Skaugum, in the private-area (2. etage) of the CP-family:
http://www.newsinenglish.no/wp-conte...1889497268.jpg
http://www.newsinenglish.no/wp-conte...1889656465.jpg

In this article you can see very good the kitchen-windows on the 2. etage, a staircase comes from the kitchen to the garden. So I think, they use this way to come out, not through the representaions-rooms:
Kronprinsparet vil selge deler av Skaugum - Aftenbladet.no
On this picture you can see also the office-windows of Mette-Marit (in the 2 part of documentary about her, she is there with her assistant and watched after the kids through the window). The bigger windows can be of the room, in where was hold the dinner for the artists, about what I in the previous post write. And maybe this is also the same room, where Haakon was with the Young Global Leaders, from post #27.
