Lindvallens Fäbod

kolbulle, lunch lindvallen, Lindvallens Fäbod, Jonas i Sälen, lingon sälen, vedeldad ugn, lokalproducerat, café lindvallen

Enjoy a true local dish, Kolbulle, in the cafe. Kolbulle is a kind of thick pancake with tarnished, grated or smoked pork in. Kolbullar is an old Nordic dish cooked in the easiest way possible directly in the frying pan. It was common among forest loggers, chacoal burners, railway workers, timber water transport/shipping and other body workers who lived under primitive conditions. Our kolbulle is of course served with lingonberry from Sälen. Enjoy a kolbulle, SEK 69 at the Lindvallens Fäbod cafe.

Above. For long periods the forest had no economic value. The peasants dropped trees when houses were to built and for fuel. Sometimes they made charcoal into pits so they got fuel for their house needs. When the ironworks and sawmills began to be established in the 18th century, the picture was changed. The availability of forest was one of the reasons why they were planted. The forest had a financial value.

Slowly but safely, the forests fell around the mills to be mildewed. During the work, cavities and gas were formed; the coal mila could take fire and explode ifi it did not merge regulary. That’s why it was watched by a coal worker, who built a simple bunk next door. After just a week the coal was ready.

Life as a chimney/coal worker was tiresome and badly paid, but the coal life was also covered with mystery and a skimmer of adventure. Many of our work writers have therefore chosen to portray the coal workers everyday life.

 

Above. Timber water transportation involves bringing loose or bundled timber into water. As much amount of timber as possible shall be shipped from the felling site to the sorting plant via water in the shortest possible time. The floating work was common in Västerdalälven.

In northern Dalarna the villages were large and the farms were small. With every generation the farms were divided equally among the children, both buildings andland. In the end the fields were too small to sustain the population in the larger villages. During the 18th century it was not unusual for farmers to have only an acre or so of land that could be cultivated. Animal husbandry came to dominate farming. Life was a matter of finding fodder and grazing for the animals. Every farmer had a share in at least one summer pasture farm to which the animals were taken in the summer. In order to make a living the farmers also practised various crafts. The men also undertook long journeys by foot to look for paid work. The farm consists of several smaller buildings for different purposes.

Fäbodar was built further into the mountain world, including Storgraven, Lindalen, Vålbrändan and Skogsätern. Fäbododliven died however, and the farms are today decayed or used as holiday homes. At Lindvallen, a reedboat has been reconstructed with animals, which today is a popular excursion destination for locals and tourists alike.

Welcome to Lindvallens Fäbod! We are open 10-16 monday to saturday until 11th of august.

Pony riding for children monday to saturday. 11-12 and 13-14. SEK 50.
