  • Description


    Hello! We are Louise and Tim and we are having a little farm on an island in south Sweden. On the farm we have horses, sheeps, hens, cats and a dog. We grow our vegetables, berries and fruit at the farm. We want our farm to be a place for people from all over the world to gather and share our passion for animals, nature, climate and health. Our farm is not a business it’s a familyfarm.
    The food you get is from the garden and eggs from the hens. We eat most veggies but Tim eat meat as well.

    We share our garden with you and you are free to pick veggies, berries and fruit. We live next door to the forest and Louise will show you what to eat from the wild 🍀 Our idea for the daily routine is to eat breakfast and lunch together and that you got from us and then you fix dinner yourself.

    Hasslö is an island that is located in Karlskrona which is south east in Sweden.
    To get here you can take:
    The train straight from Copenhagen airport. Karlskrona is the end destination, and then we pick you up at the train station.

    You can also take the ferry (Stena Line) from Gdynia in Poland to Karlskrona.
    There is also one ferry going from Lithuania to Karlshamn which is 40 minute drive from our home.

    On the island there is a grocerystore that you can take the bike in 10 minutes to go shopping. You can take the bus or boat to town, it takes around 35 min with bus and 25 min with boat.
    The nature around here is fantastic with the Baltic Sea just outside the door and lots of big forests.
    Feel free to borrow our bikes and explore the surroundings.
