The cows grazing in woodland and pastures in the nearby surroundings belong to our agriculture. They contribute to the open countryside that we can still enjoy this.

Gräsö Farm sooner
In 1549 redeemed Gustav Vasa 12 farmsteads on Gräsö.
A few years later, the farmers of these farms move.
As farmers move came five of these farms to breastfed form Gräsö Kungsgård. Kungsgården inheritedGustav Vasa's descendants until 1622, when the National Council Nils Bielke bought it, and together with his son ran the farm for 65 years. From 1687 to 1787 came the farm belonging to the Crown again, which leased the farm to frälsemän, including Jennings, von Rosen, Taube and Koskull. In 1787 the farm was bought by Samuel af Ugglas, and thus came to belong to the Forsmark Bruk until 1945, when Carl Lamm bought the farm. Today Östhammar Municipality owns the farm. Gräsö Farm today farm rented by Ann-Britt Högström and her family, who runs the farm and hostel.
The family has shifted from dairy to beef cattle, autumn 2009, the new barn finished with 80 cows.

The farm is part of a nature reserve which stretches over 310 hectares in the southern part of Gräsö. Gräsö Farm owned by the municipality of Östhammar since 1965 and the nature reserve is managed by
