Welcome to Sara’s family farm where we’ll ‘fika’ in the garden during summer and make apple juice in autumn.
I’ve taken over Ekebo, our centuries old family farm, situated on the island of Kållandsö near Läckö Castle. Some of the buildings here date back to the 1700s, and I’m proud to be the seventh generation working this land. My husband and I run an organic farm and cottage hire. The farm has an apple orchard with 120 trees and if you visit in September-October you’re welcome to help us make apple juice in the old wagon shed. And of course you can take the apple juice home with you! If you visit during summer you can enjoy a fika and nice chat in the garden. A visit here will last around 2 hours.
About Your Host, Sara
I’m a cheerful and inquisitive young mother who’s really interested in cultural history. That’s probably why I became a heritage conservation officer, which works well now I have taken over the family farm, which is a listed building. I like growing our own food so I spend some time doing that and we have extended the vegetable garden which will eventually make way for a greenhouse.
Who this is for
Anyone who is interested in history, gardening, agriculture, animals and life in the countryside.
From June to October
Ekebo Farm is in the middle of Kållandsö island, 30 minutes by car and 20 km north of Lidköping, a stone’s throw from Läckö Castle.
