Åva Gård

Åva Gård
I showed you a few photos from Spirudden last month thanks to a flat tire. Happy to report that I now have completed that bike ride without any major incidents. So here is a first report from that chilly ride. This is Åva gård. It used to be a dairy farm. And a very popular one as it had many visitors young and old. The farmers, Fredrik and Malin worked hard here for thirteen years. The farm has a very long history and dates back to the Viking Era. It was the last dairy farm owned by Stockholm Stad. When the couple asked to have the farm renovated by the city it refused, so the tenants packed up and moved to Gotland. The city then sold the property to the Environmental Protection Agency and rumors have it that the farm will be incorporated with the Tyresta National Park in a not too distant future.

That's the ever evolving life of buildings I guess Steffe, lucky not to be demolished really ✨
