Blossoming peach trees and nutritious crops

You’ll find Björnhyltans Garden tucked between dry stone walls, fields and meadows. Nutritious crops are grown here as well as plants to please the eye. There’s a show garden, with a greenhouse for cultivation and enjoyment of the Mediterranean warmth in it. Fruit trees and perennials from the old farmland have been retained, while the mulched kitchen garden, herb garden and flower garden have been added later on. You’ll be met by our hens and sheep gathered around the barn. The farm shop is open during the season and sells the day’s harvest as well as other things to help you with your own growing. Why not do a basic course in organic gardening, or immerse yourself in topsoil? You can do that here!

Bring a picnic and either sit under the flowering peach tree in the glasshouse, or in the lush and productive gardens. At 6pm on Thursdays from July to September there is a guided tour. Tours at other times or ones in English must be booked. 

Accessibility for prams, rollators, and wheelchairs is good and there is parking next to the garden. There is a guest toilet. Dogs are not allowed. You’ll need a car to get to us.
