Hagaset med Hagasetlien øvre

Sub-farms: Bråten, Enger, Fredlund, Solheim, Tommasset

Nobody is sure how old Hagaset is, however, Frøholm believes it was settled in the 10th or 11th century. Rygh suggests the name Hagaset comes from the old Norwegian word Hagi, which means pasture-field. Hagaset was emptied during the Black Death and wasn't re-populated again until around the middle of the 16th century.

Hagaset was originally part of the Berge farm in Nord-Aurdal. This part of Etnedal, in the northwestern corner of the valley, belonged previously to the Nord Aurdal Community.

The farm was first purchased by Syver Berge on 20 February 1666. At that time he told that his father had settled on the farm originally. Today Hagaset is comprised of two units, nordre Hagaset and søndre Hagaset. As this farm is located on the border to Nord Aurdal the families living on the farms have close family ties to Ranheim and Skrautvål in Nord Aurdal.
