A Family Estate Going Back to the Times of Gustav Vasa
In the 16th century Ulfsby Gård was owned by Olof Trotteson, governor of Åland and Gustaf Vasa’s cousin. In her will, Trotteson’s daughter Beata left the farm to Gustaf af Vasaborg, the son of Gustaf II Adolf of Sweden.
The Greater Wrath caused many changes. However, we know with certainty that our family has worked this farm since 1744.
During the first half of the 19th century the farm was divided between two children; Norrgårds which is the present-day Ulfsby Gård, and Södergårds which you pass on your way to Ulfsby.
The period houses you can see today were built by Dick’s grandparents on his father’s side between 1928 and 1932.
The barn with its metre-thick stone walls was built in the second half of the 19th century, right along the time the farm was divided in two. This is where the present-day banqueting hall, Stensalen, is situated.
