For You who will visit Sweden and Falbygden for a reason has a lot to look and make. A warning, just a day or two isn't enough. If You also visit relatives it take much longer time then You think.
Falbygden is a farming land. A lot of small farms all over. But not so many as it used to be as the farmers have to much taxes and do not get so much pay. The competition come from EU's other countries, specially Denmark and Ireland and they don't have to pay so much taxes (1,5 billion SEK pay Swedish farmers more then the rest). A lot of farmers wifes work outside the farm. The milkcow is the most common animals around here, around 40 000 cows.
