English translation:the farmer´s parents
Explanation:
Can´t be too sure, since the info below is saying that it usually is the farmer´s parents.

"kår- agreement about support of elderly people.Usually made with the son/daughter who took over/inherited the farm.
kårbrev - the written agreement about support
kårfolk - the couple who is supported
kårkone - the woman who is being supported
kårmann - the man who is being supported
kårstaue/kårhus - house on the farm where the supported people live."

" Eivind Lilleskjaeret: "kårfolk" er vanligvis bondens foreldre. "

I guess you would have to ask the author of the text to be sure.

Yes, thanks. The kårfolk in this case are the farmer's parents, so that's what I'll write.
"Kårfolk" is a very useful expression-- English should have something like it!
