Haymaking at Hammarby
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.
Country fair at Hammarby
Buy locally produced artisan crafts and freshly harvested vegetables at the cozy country fair, organised by Hammarby's friend association. Come along on walks with the farmers and the agricultural historians. Let the children go on a pony ride or try on 18th century clothing. Watch when we dye yarn and spin wool.
Hops, Oats and Barley
It is harvest time at Carl Linnaeus' country estate! We harvest hops, oats and barley in the restored farmland surrounding Linnaeus' country house. Learn about old varieties of hops.
Meadow raking in the cultural reserve
Come and volunteer at Linnaeus' Hammarby! It is time to harvest the last vegetables and to prepare the forest meadows for winter by raking them and collecting and burning branches. Work side by side with experts on agrarian history and learn about 18th century farming. All helpers will be rewarded with hot dogs and soft drinks.
