History

The municipality was formed in 1964 by merging Lensvik, Ingdalen and the outer part of old Agdenes. In 1995, the area of Moldtun was transferred to Snillfjord. This was because the area had been without road connection, and once the road was built, it was built in the direction of Snillfjord and it was hence logical to vote for the transfer.

Commerce

The industrial density of Agdenes is above the national average, and the primary sector is the biggest. Most of the inhabitants work within the milk or forest industry. The growth of strawberries and the breeding of fur animals are important industries as well.


The growth of strawberries has been a major industry in Agdenes for the past 100 years, started by the farmer Lars H. Selbæk in 1886 by planting some strawberry flowers and then giving them away to neighbouring farms. The most common sorts of strawberry grown here are Korona, Sephyr, Senga Sengana and Bounty. Today the collecting of the strawberries is performed by foreign workers, mainly from Poland and Lithuania. In the initial stages, the Norwegian youth was the main workforce, but after the 70s, it became less attractive for them to pick strawberries in a field.

The municipality of Agdenes has a rich and varied birdlife.

The lake is surrounded by farmland, which in its own right provides food and shelter for several species.
