  • Description

    Description

    Our Family consists of 3 grown up kids. Five grandchildren. One kid is still at home. We are Family home so there is at the moment 3 kids from 7 - 19 in the home. There is always food in the kitchen. We eat 3 times a day. Together sometimes and sometimes anybody just cook and grab some food. It depends when everybody start school or end school or having a concert or working in the riding school. We have 32 islandic horses and 1 Siberian cat. We are musicians. Two children are professional in Folkmusic and Classical music. We are master fiddlers in Scanian folkmusic. There will be cultural exchange everyday if you like ;-) Three of us has won World Championship in Clogfiddling. The farmbusiness have 9 acre and a pond. A small labyrint. Beautiful surroundings. We teach in violin and two-row accordion. There is a riding school on the farm with 120 students including handicap students and tours are being held in the forest. We have breeding from 1 - 4 years old. There is always something to do in the house or all the buildings that needs to attend to and mend or build new stables for. And of course the garden. We live beautiful in the forest but close to Båstad, Helsingborg and Ängelholm.

A lot of them liked to walk and run in the beautiful forrest. Some liked to follow with us on festivals, concerts and learn how to dance and play. Others preferred the horses and took lessons. Some got married with our carpenters and moved to Sweden...
