    Description

    Lisa and I live on this little Island trying to find a sustainable way of life. We moved from the city to live closer to the elements. And surely they are present. Since this summer we have a 7 sheep and two chickens and a dog. The fields on the farm are used for hay har for grazing. We are planting a number of hop plants and some berry trees to perhaps get a small income or at least make som e nice products from.

    We lived here in Sollerön almost 3 years and some work on the farmhouse needs still to be done.

    Lisa works in the day in Mora and I'm working on the farm. For those who come there will be a variety of things to do. Depending on the season.
