A clear responsibility
To always focus on the benefits for the farmer is deeply rooted in the mind-set of Väderstads’ owners and founders, the Stark family, who has operated the family farm close to the factory for generations. In 2014 the farming operations gained a new structure and Axel Ektander was hired as the first Farm Manager of Väderstad Farm AB. At the same time Väderstad Farm AB also got incorporated as a subsidiary of Väderstad Holding AB.
– As a Farm Manager, I am responsible for purchases and sales, I decide which crops to grow and most importantly; how to grow them, says Axel. Today Väderstad Farm operates 250 hectares of land.
