About

With the sea and nature on their doorstep Skeviks Farm is an inspiring venue for conferences, training courses, lectures, events such as weddings or private dinners. Our beautiful archipelago provides peace of work and exercise. The red houses with white trim combines old Swedish tradition with modern technology. Skeviks Farm is suitable for both small and large groups.

In addition to our harmonious archipelago as one of our most important cornerstones food and selection of what we serve our guest is our profile. Therefore we last year (2014) builded a large vegetable garden next to were the fruit trees grows. We builded a hen house for chickens that provide great eggs for breakfast. What we can not provide enough of by our self we works closely with many local producers of local and organic food.

The first year, 2014 the vegetable garden produced almost 1000 kg fresh vegetables, herbs and edible flowers even though it was the first year of growing. A true success!! The soil is amazingly rich in nutrition for growing and we are countiously working to improve its structure. It is and old seabottom and party rather compact. A lot of plantmaterial, compost as well as green growing in beteween rows is a part of the work of improvement. This spring we will also try to plough with horse rather than a heavy tractor.

In may 2015, Skeviks Farm took a fantastic large step further and supplements with their own livestock and meat production of unique Swedish landrace animals such as cows, sheep and pigs. This is completely unique and no other conference venue are able to offer this in Stockholm or even Sweden. We are very proud to be the first!!

Another thing Skeviks Farm is offering is the possibility of operating, training and exercise. Skeviks Farm is a great place for movement, where nature is our most important location for that. We can also offer a outdoor gym, indoor gym, jogging track, kayaks, bicycles, etc. - things that everyone is included to use daily.

As volunteer at Skeviks Farm you will help out in vegetable garden but also with the care of farm animals and other garden chores such as weeding, trimming trees and shrubs etc. It can also be work like taking care of the buildings, keeping the area clean and other thing that come up on farm/conferenscenter.

You will be staying in pairs in a two bed cottage with private shower & toilet. Most of the meals we eat together, especially during weekdays but you will also have meals/food provided by the farms restaurant to enjoy in a separate cabin or outdoor if you prefer. It can also be that during the time when we have no conterenceguests you have to go like 3 km to our other restaurant to get food.

Approximately 15-20 people work on Skeviks Farm today but none of these are permanent residents there. As volunteer you will sometimes be alone in the farm at night and days when no conference business is conducted. The farm animal will be cared of daily thourout the year.

We are looking for interested volunteer that can help us to continue to implement the major change Skeviks Farm goes through and to enable further development as well. As volunteer at Skeviks Farm you contribute to biodiversity and the preservation of cultural heritage crops and endangered Swedish landrace animals.

Jesper Strandberg Westin is responsible for Skeviks Farm animals. The first animals arrive within a month at the beginning of may 2015.

Jesper currently operates in conjunction with the municipality a daily activity of one to Skeviks Farm neighboring property called Kärrtorp and Knarrnäs. It is intended for people with mild to moderate mental retardation, autism and people with mental disabilities. Its aim is to combine meaningful employment for people with disabilities with the rehabilitation and maintenance of old cultural environment and the conservation of native breed animals. Jesper and his team are responsivle for the care of the farm animals at Skeviks Farm.

A very warm welcome to Skeviks Farm!
Please do not hesitate to send us a message if you have any questions!
We look forward to hear from you!

Kind regards,
Jenny Åkeson
