Welcome to our small homestead in Sweden



We love eating food that tastes good. We also love food that contains a lot of greens and is as free from additives as possible. We are not vegetarians, but we like to include a lot of vegetables in our diet. As a consequence we love cooking food and we usually cook all our meals from scratch. We also use the barbeque to cook all year round. Furthermore, since we grow a lot of vegetables, we do our best to find ways to preserve these. In fact, we think that life is too short to eat bad or boring food.
