The three small farms in Sevedstorp were the model for Astrid's books about Bullerby. This is where Astrid's father Samuel August grew up and this is where the films were made about Bullerby in 1986/87 under the direction of Lasse Hallström.
In the summertime the village comes to life. There are a few different animals, you can jump in the hay and in one of the barns you’ll find Café Sörgården where waffles, Swedish cheesecake, sandwiches, ice cream and other things are available.
In the café there is a little shop with souvenirs, handcraft and children’s clothes. Check out the website for more information about what is going on in Bullerby.
