Not far from Örsundsbro you can find the living and breathing dream of one Anna Hane. On 500 ha of land, divided by a stream and spread on the hills around, Anna has started a massive, diverse, organic and animal friendly farm. She rears hens, sheep, cows, some horses, random ducks that fly in and a cat or two. She also grows asparagus, apples and a few other crops. Her milk brings you back in time to the era when a layer of cream would form on top, in a glass bottle. All her products are organic, without conservation additives (other than salt). You can also come visit the farm during the weekend, see the animals and have a cup of coffee.

On the way to Enköping you will find this small goat farm run by Michael and Kicki Sjöman. They produce a variety of cheese and beyond excellent, gluten free Swedish cheesecakes (with almonds, to be eaten with whipped cream and jam). Right now the cheese is made from goat milk and the cakes come in both cow and goat milk varieties. However, the Sjömans are selling off most of their goats and will produce with organic cow milk instead. Their products can also be bought at their very own small store on the farm, open daily from 10am-6pm.
