1500's Scandinavian farms

I am just starting on a novella that is set in Norway, most likely in the late 1400s or early 1500s, and I am having a lot of trouble finding information on farm life. I especially want information on what kinds of animals were raised, what buildings were like, and what they ate.

I have a few books on medieval culture but all the information in them is based on the main European continent, not Scandinavia, and is also a little older than I want. I've tried googling various combinations of historic, farm/farming, scandinavia/scandinavian, livestock, and diet, and all I've really learned is that fish are very important. Any information will help!
