The farm you are looking for is probably Bjoreim - located in Varhaug parish, Hå kommune (municipality) in Rogaland fylke (county) near Stavanger on the west coast of Norway. In the old days this municipality was called Varhaug herad and the county was called Stavanger amt.

I read an inquiry you posted a decade or so ago regarding August Gust family history. He was my great-great-grandfather, and I have an extensive history of his people. Contact me if specific information is still wanted.
