We know Bjørke farm is mentioned in documents from 1348. About 1520 Bjørke was divided into to farms and ca. 1790 was Vestre Bjørke (this farm) divided into two. The lokal postofffice was at Bjørke from about 1900 upto the middle of the 1970th.

The farm has now been in the same family for a little more than 100 years.

The location and the size of this farm, tells us that it is one of the oldest in this district. The farm is situated on a hill with a wide view, which was very important for defending the farm from attack. The fields are sloping to east and southeast. where the snow is melting first in the spring. Theese fields need no draining which was important for the early farmers.
