The agriculture include 30 acres. In the fields there are many different kinds of vegetables, clover, cereals, but we also have areas that are growing with wild nature. The farm’s livestock consists of cows, sheep, horses, chickens and ducks. A portion of the organic message is the versatility also called diversity. On the Fence squad is great variation in crops: a natural consequence of the ecological thinking. Of course it is not as efficient, but, on the other hand, greater security, if one crop fails, other cultures will complement . This also results in a much richer presence of insects, birds, wild plants mm. Which thrives in, or due to the individual differences in the cultures. Finally, the daily working situation is conveniently varied. The crops are spread across several different plant-families and species, especially vegetables and clover. We place great emphasis on ecology and versatility: as we produce all the feed our animals eat, we use our manure on the fields and we produce most of the seeds we sow. Finally, we aim to produce vegetables and meat for use throughout the year. All this helps to foster a great diversity of wild plants and animals. It is under minimal consumption of purchased energy.

There are several adjacent properties attached to the place, and it gives much life and a good social network for children, youth and adults.
