Urnatur tries to be as environmentally friendly as ever possible.
Housings, tin castle and the sauna are heated with wood from our own forest, shower water is heated with solar energy. The trees we take down are carefully selected to make space for another tree to gain an even higher biodiversity. During summer season we are nearly totally self sufficient on energy with solar panels.
The water comes from our own wells. Our toilets are urine separating. The urine is spread out on the fields later to fertilize our sheeps grazing grounds. All meat we serve comes from our own farm. It is about 95% lamb and 5% wild game such as deer and moose. The lambs are born in April and graze on our ancient natural pastures for all their life and help use to maintain our rich biodiversity on the farm. We also serve fish from lake Visjö (perch, pike, roach) and sometimes for special occasions crayfish if the season is right.
During springtime we serve a lot of wild herbs, summertime and autumn all vegetable and herbs we serve are from our organic kitchen garden, complementing with mushrooms from the forest. All other ingredients we use are organic as far as ever possible.
