About

Ramshyttan Horse Farm is situated in the Kilsbergen hills 25km north of Örebro. This is a semi wilderness area consisting of forest and lakes. In the area are elk, wolves, deer, lynx, beaver, badgers, foxes, and prolific bird life.

We do our own composting, using left over hay, silage and straw, horse manure, good black soil and of course greens from the kitchen. Luckily our fields have never been exposed to chemical fertilisers or pesticides.

We have been applying Permaculture principles, ( mulch gardens, herb spirals etc.) having seen in Australia the great benefits to be gained!

In 2015 we began a Food forest project around a cottage near the stable. Here we will be planting trees, perennial bushes and plants, and establishing new beds.

Our horses have no iron shoes nailed to their hooves and we never lock them up in stables. They have free access to shelters and large pastures with plenty of forest to roam around in. We offer riding tours, natural horsemanship courses, and accommodation for people who want to come here with their horses.

Work possibilities
Wwoofers can work with composting, preparing herb and vegetable beds, tending the greenhouse, assisting with clearing and gathering firewood in the forest, repair work to buildings, and helping with the horses, including riding and training - and now working with the Food Forest.
