The agricultural history of Kronoberg County is placed in perspective in its own museum. Officially a department of Smålands museum, the Kronoberg agricultural museum(swedish) is situated
just north of Alvesta.Visit the museum on a summer's day and drink in the atmosphere of the old Hjärtenholm farm, whose buildings now house the museum. It documents the changing conditions under which farmers worked, from the days of hand and animal-powered implements to the early machine era. Experience the hard life of the subsistence farmer, with sowing and harvests, butchering and baking.The lovely surrounding countryside is still tended by modern farmers, who work the land and keep the countryside open.
At the spacious cottage café, you can sample prepared food or relax with your own bag lunch.
