Savory Institute – Nordic Hub – Mountain Graze | Jörgen Andersson and Natasha Skott, from the Savory Institute Nordic Hub at the demonstration site located in Åre, Sweden, tell us about their cooperative business called Mountain Graze (Fjallbete). It is comprised of more than 150 co-owners that support the sheep growing operation. Many of those who have bought into Mountain Graze also own restaurants, hotels, and cafes in the popular ski resort town. They serve the lamb meat and sell the artisan wool at their many locations throughout Åre and the surrounding area. The business is run with Holistic Management to ensure that the social, financial, and ecological factors are all being considered and to be sure that the land is regenerating.

    Are the sheep housed up into buildings for the duration of the winter?

    Very inspiring. I "retired" to Mexico from the USA to teach rainwater harvesting. People like you show what is possible with hard work.

    Do the local ski hills use snow making equipment? If they do use snow making equipment,  I wonder about the bacteria they spread over the ski hill. Might it impact the animals? I have seen some research on the bacteria negatively effecting vegetables.
    Really awesome ideas you are practicing!!
