The history of the farm dates back to the 17th century and the Finnish settlers who came here in the late 16th century as pioneers on new land. They were called Svedjefinnar (svedje – to burn) because they had a way of farming that included burning down parts of the forest in order to grow rye.
The farm consists of a residential building, four different barns and a new building. The farm is located on calcareous soil which
means that you can find both noble trees and rare plants. The farm covers an area of ​​approximately 4 hectares of land with access to water and fishing rights. We are not alone, the farm is included in the village of Sångshyttan with approximately 20 households.

To the south of the house you find the garden. On the west side, a forest garden with fruit trees and berry bushes mixed with the cultivation of both perennials and annuals. To the south we have a small green house for more sensitive plants. We are in plant zone 5 so some of the plants need protection. Next to the greenhouse you find a pond for carp fish. In the outskirts of the garden we also have some beehives. New for this year is  the arrival of some sheep as well as our plan to build a hen house.
