goats an sheep
First we have a few goats. It is an old race from the middle of Sweden and it is under the threat of being extinct. They are unpretentious and get along well in the climate here. Our goats help us to keep the landscape open and they give us milk.
Our little flock of sheep consists of pure milk-sheep from Ostfriesland. They live together with the goats and give us wool, milk and meat. And they also help keeping the landscape open.
Kalle (a Shettis-mix) and Maestro (a Haflinger) are our strong friends here at the farm. They help us with heavy work in the wood and the gardens. They can carry and pull really heavy loads. And we also drive sleighs and wagons with our darlings.
cats and dogs
Our two cats, Benny and Joon, are skilled hunters – and the cuddliest cats in the world. They are siblings and have been with us almost from the start.
Leo, a Howavart-mix, is our farm-and watchdog. His main task is to stop four-legged vegetable-and fruitthieves. But he also welcomes all visitors. He really loves people!
For many years there have been bees at Solbacken. They are an important part of the farm, because they pollinate our vegetables, berry bushes and fruit trees. And on top of that they produce the loveliest honey!
