OUR FARMERS AND SUPPLIERS
Our ambition is to offer you the best quality imaginable. Here in our Food Hall, we have products from a whole host of great suppliers. Many of them operate in our own backyard, whilst others are located a bit further away. “Our” farmers are our most important asset - read on to get to know some of them.
At Forsa Farm, the Engvall family is dedicated to rearing KRAV-certified pigs. Here, pigs get to graze freely all summer long and the litters are born in the BB area where they spend 10 days with their mum before following her out into the pastures. At Forsa Farm, there’s loads to learn for anyone who appreciates good animal rearing.
In the little town of Ljusterängarna, just a stone’s throw away on the other side of the Dal River, lies Pollacks Farm. Here, Marie and Mats rear organic Aberdeen Angus cattle that are slaughtered, butchered and dry-aged at the local abattoir. Our Food Hall contains all sorts of products from frozen and occasionally fresh meat to frozen hamburgers with meat from the farm.
Nirsgården is situated in beautiful surroundings alongside the Dal River here in Stora Skedvi and has been owned by the Roslund family since 1948. This farm grows grains, potatoes and herbage. The main crop is potatoes, and the harvests are eco-certified according to Svenskt Sigill with a 1/3 organic harvest. This is where we at Skedvi Bröd get our supply of excellent tubers. You can buy these from us in the Food Hall or enjoy them in all their forms in the Restaurant.
The milk we sell in the Food Hall and serve in the restaurant is supplied by Fredrikslunds Farm, situated just a kilometre or so away. On this farm, run by Emma and Samuel, peace and quiet reigns just as it should. Just like other farmers in the area, our cooperation is both vital and local. One or two times a week, the tractor trundles along the short route to ours to fill the tank in our dairy with milk. Locally produced, just the way we like it. That same milk is of course also used in our Restaurant and the Food Hall.
Stora Skedvi is also home to Catharinas Sprätthönseri which supplies us with eggs for our Food Hall and restaurant. The farm is owned by Björn who also runs the abattoir here in town. This poultry farm is the only one in Dalarna that produces organic KRAV-certified eggs. The breed of hen is Bovans Robust and as such the chickens are free to roam about the henhouse. They also get a chance to roam free during the summer and even in the winter sometimes, weather permitting. Locally produced, just the way we like it. Björn knows his chickens but even he doesn’t have an answer to the oft-asked question: Which came first? The chicken or the egg?
