I'm sure that Valstad Farm has the best of intentions, but it is illegal to volunteer in Norway without a work VISA. I have volunteered in the past and never had any issue, but Norway is the most STRICT of the Schengen Zone Countries. I was deported. So, if you are not an EU resident and do not have a work permit, make sure that you know what you are getting before you enter Norway. I don't want anyone else to be misinformed and to make my mistake.
