About the activity
Tyresta Farm is a small farmstead that grows crops and keeps animals. The animals include cows, sheep, poultry, a few pigs and a north Swedish horse — all of old native breeds.
On the fields grow traditional grain crops and winter fodder for the animals. The farm is operated with the intent of restoring and preserving Tyresta’s traditional landscape of many centuries, with small irregular fields and open grazing land. Biological diversity is benefitted when land is grazed by muzzles and trampled by hooves.
Every time of the year on a farm is delightful in its own way, but the best time to experience Tyresta Farm is during April–May when many lambs come into the world. In the middle of May, most of the cows and sheep are released onto the grazing pastures on the edge of the village, where they remain until the end of October. Some of the sheep graze the pastures near the farm during the summer.
Ducks and the pigs Debbie and Diana live on the farm, and the chickens wander about freely all year.
The farm is free to visit.Monday-Friday 10.00-16.00 and Saturday-Sunday 11.00-16.00.
