Lillhärjåbygget - Fjälljordbruk i väglöst land!

Welcome to Lillhärjåbygget

Lillhärjåbygget is Sweden's only remaining working mountain farm and shieling on roadless land.

The farm is high up (710m above sea level) and is located in south-west Härjedalen, surrounded by mountain tops, extensive marshes and sparse forests. It was founded at the beginning of the 1800s and is now worked by the fifth generation of the same family.

The farm has no electricity, but it does have a telephone.
There is a herd of pure bred Swedeish mountain cattle as well as sheep, horses and chickens which, along with hunting and fishing, allow the farm to be highly self-sufficient.

In 2002 the County Administrative Board of Jämtland declared the farm a cultural reservation.
The aim of cultural reserves is to protect threatened landscapes that have been marked by human activity and which are dependent on the continuance of traditional practises for their preservation.
