The Marathon

During 24-25 April in 2002 there was an unique combi-drill event at Gårdskulla. With a Valtra S tractor and a Väderstad Rapid 6m combi-drill there was  164 hectares drilled in 24 hours. The spring was early but very dry .The 9 fields were of different size 5-35 ha which is normal in this region. Four different types of seed 250kg/ha and fertilizer 550kg/ha was spread out. The aim was to drive as a contractor in normal conditions around the clock.Marcus Grönholm congratulated the three driversPer Fimmerstad, Patrik Cederskär and Johan Mattson at the goalflag.

Christmas trees

Christmas trees are produced on smaller fields that are not convenient for the big farming machines. Still mainly picea abies trees dominate the market and they need to be hand cut every year during the 12 year growing period. An increasing part of the trees are sold during the traditional Christmas Tree Safari when families come from Helsinki and surroundings to cut their own tree.
