In the middle of southern Sweden, between Trollenäs- and Trolleholm Castle on the farm Österby V.Strö, we have since 1975 to spring 2009 drifted, a crop-based family farm which has been the base of all our activities.
We have been rethinking the mainspring which meant that we, in a small part of agriculture, tested the new exciting things to grow. This has given us many experiences, exciting challenges and new contacts. Currently we grow including wormwood, which is an ingredient in Pirates Bittersweet included in Systembolaget`s product range.
For 16 years we have on our farm grown, harvested and sold everlastings. The everlastings was then mostly sold as finished arrangement from the farm boutique "Titti`s everlasting", which is now converted into a small apartment for bed and breakfast or self catering. For many years we sold this decoration grains to flower shops all over the country and also to people visiting the boutique. Sorts that we grow was poppy capsules, flax, durum-, Texaswheat, triticale, oats, wheat, barley rye.
Salix we began to grow 1986th. It was from the begining grown as a heating product. Later it become more popular as a produkt used for fence and garden decorations.
Summer 2008 was the expansion of our new Bed & Breakfast clear. The old horse stables were transformed total and was converted into two doubles and one single room with shared entrance shared fully equipped kitchenette.
