Located at 59°N in rural Sweden, Ridgedale Permaculture is a 10-hectare farm that integrates pastured eggs and chickens, no-dig market gardens, silvo-pasture and orchard systems, all while offering an example of how holistic design can help pave the way to a new model of food production that is small-scale, profitable and regenerative for the land.
