The official start of the workshop is the welcome reception 19.00 September 9th. The dinner is served from 20.00.  The reception is optional (300 SEK extra cost), and includes two free drinks, beer or wine. Other beverages are available for purchase.

The hotel/conference center is fully booked by our event, so it is of course possible to explore the venue and mingle before 19.00 as well!

18:30 - 19:15 Guided tour on the farm
All cultivation at Ängavallen is 100 percent organic. This means that we do not use artificial fertilizers, pesticides or other chemical additives. Everything is permitted to grow as nature intended. The crops consist of old, native varieties that have adapted to our climate and type of soil over the decades. Resistant varieties that grow healthily. These varieties grow more slowly than modern varieties, but in return they provide more taste. 

All pork, lamb and beef as well as all cured meats come from the farm’s own HälsoDjur® and are sold under the registered trademarks. Original, native breeds (Swedish Red Poll cattle, Swedish Forest Sheep, Linderöd pigs) that have roamed freely under the open sky and that have lived a good life and have been reared on the farm’s vegetable fodder, which is organically grown and naturally fertilized. The animals have not been given any medicines and they are slaughtered on the farm, in a dignified manner and entirely stress-free.
