We live surrounded by nature. Ever since the earth began to be used the wilderness has been slowly adapted – fields have been created, the forest has been felled and replanted. There is continuous development, but it occurs slowly. We construct new fields, dikes or roads very rarely. Our farming practices are largely the same as our great-grandfathers and the sheep seem to enjoy getting back to the same pastures year after year.
In contrast to the farms slow pace, we invest much energy to further develop the farm's produce. Since EvaLis and Krister moved to the farm, they have built a deli building, smokehouse and farm shop. A variety of unique meat products have been created – some of them have received national awards. In the smokehouse we of course refine lamb, but also pork and beef. Thousands of people meet us every year in the shop and at markets.
We want a living countryside, full of life and movement. Based on long traditions, but with inspiration from around the world, we collaborate with neighbors and small-scale food producers. We are members of Östgötamat and Matresan and participate in the event "Be a tourist at home" and "Taste Tjust". Collaborations with other small-scale entrepreneurs give us the desire and confidence to take on new challenges. At the same time nature teaches us the importance of evolving at a leisurely pace.
We in Smultronboda do things a little differently than in town. You may be surprised – both by the similarities and differences between us. You are welcome to get to know our way of life.
