    We run a small farm in the north west of Östergötland, Sweden. We aim to be self sufficient in vegetables, fruit, meat, egg, honey and wood for heating the house.

    Right now we are working with preparing the garden for this season of growing. Accept digging and manure, we´re starting to build a better rain water collection system for watering the vegetables during the summer. This summer the main project is to paint our house, and renovate the windows and doors with old methods. During the summer and in the autumn we harvest and take care of the vegtebles, fruits and berries in different ways. Last year we built an earth cellar, were we store most of them. We also have bees, so taking care of them and the honey is part of the weekly work from spring to autumn. For eggs and meat we have hens who´s walking free in the garden. Earlier we also had pigs, but now we only have some rabbits for meat.

    Who are we? Isabelle, Micke, and our two children 3 and 1 year.
