In our village of Rasgärde in Northern Munktorp in 2014 we decided to plant crops that would be the base of a beverage. Apples for juice and cider are now an important part of the farm’s income in good company of grain and hey and silage. To tend to the uniqeness of the individual apple varieties as a certified organic beverage has become our sepciality. Since 2015 we have planted and acquired orchards around 10 ha. 6000 trees.
The business Köpings Musteri AB is run by the family Ryberg-Ericsson in the small village of Rasgärde.
Lena Ryberg-Ericsson, Johanna Ryberg, Anders Ericsson and Benjamin Ryberg-Ericsson. Johanna and Lena work full time in the business.
Lena Ryberg-Ericsson is the CEO for Köpings Musteri AB. All chores has to be done- from exchanging the hydraulic hoses when they break to dealing with the administrative chores (Sometimes when it’s too hard the younger generation helps out. They are quicker and stronger) It’s an overwhelming feeling at times. Luckily the orchard is so beautiful and soothing!
Anders Ericsson is born on the farm in Rasgärde village. He works with agricultural matters at Hushållningssällskapet in Västerås. There he is responsible for trials of new crops and farming methods. His knowledge about farming is comforting in stressful situations.
Johanna Ryberg is the farm manager. Her speciality is taste and scent. Our taste master! (She also has a secret skill, she drives crappy tractors with heavy loads in narrow and difficult situations like no other.) Her job consists of mixing ciders, bottling, leading the work during the picking, hold tastings and selling beverages to our clients. When she isn’t riding dressage horses, her own as well as others, here in Sweden or in Germany.
Benjamin helps out with the bookeeping. (His work loead consists of everything that Anders and Lena feel is too hard to work out) Most of his time he spends in Linköping at the university. As soon as he shows up at home there is work. That is usually how we spend time together – during the daily work.
