During Linnaeus' time the meadows were harvested to provide winter feed to the farm's animals. Join us in the Cultural Reserve - learn how to use scythe and rake and how to dry hay on a hayrack. Buy old varieties of vegetables from the kitchen garden. Go on a guided tour in the Reserve together with the peasants or the agricultural historians.
Also welcome to Linnaeus' Hammarby museum facility – the manor house is open for visits, and guided tours are held outside during the day. 18th century clothing to try on for the children.
For this events day, you can travel to and from Hammarby with the Lennakatten veteran bus. Please book your bus ticket at least one week in advance by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org .
