  • Description


    We are a German family (Ecki, Jacky and our 3 Kids) of emigrants who want to bring a small farm back to life here in Sweden.
    We want to bring our farm back to life little by little.
    There are a lot of projects that all contribute, building holiday accommodation is just as much a part of it as growing vegetables and building up an animal population.
    There is a lot of work to do and we are grateful for help, whether on the construction site, in the garden or around the house, there is always something to do.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    Our farm is located on the edge of a small village (25 inhabitants) in the middle of the Swedish wilderness. The next shop is about 30 minutes away. It is a very quiet place that invites you to spend a lot of time in nature. So if you are looking for action and raging city life, you are not at the right place with us.
