Kulturens Östarp
south of Veberöd is a living museum in the middle of the cultural landscape with agricultural environment from the 1830s and the 1930s.

August 20, 2011: Shortly after Veberöd, towards Blentarp, is a narrow paved road to the Kulturens Östarp. Sets the car in the parking lot at the inn. Fetch a brochure about the place in Östarpshallen. In there are children's drawings. Been a while since I ate at the inn, it will not be today either, but feel like I should. Is time to walk the old buildings.

In the pasture is grass to dry. Begin with a visit in the windmill. Was once in Lund, built in the early 1800's. Goes up on the rickety upturn. Studying the gearwheel mechanism. Nice view towards the inn. Next to the mill is Möllegården, built in 1924 as the operating system for the agriculture. Below the mill house is Brytestugan which is used for preparing Flax. It is open so I'm looking into it. Malttorken next to it is a drying hous for malt, used for brewing beer. At a stream is a water mill, built in 1705. Behind the mill graze cows. Walk the road up to Gamlegård, built in 1812 and is thus 200 years next year.

In a pasture graze sheeps, old Scanian breeds. In yard in front of the house begins a guided tour, the group consists of a couple and a happy dog. I half connects. Two pigs rummaging in the ground. The farm is built around a cobbled courtyard, with a well. The well has run dry. In one room, children can make pine cone animals, there is a large collection. In one row are old gear. Walking through the rooms, weaving room, coffins. The kitchen with ovens and cookware. From the kitchen I come into the garden with flower beds and boxwood hedges. Lots of plants, many unknown to me. An old apple tree is said to be as old as the house. Sit down and enjoy the splendor. Hens and cocks pass by. Outside the yard is an outdoor toilet, which I utilize. Outside stands a water jug, which I also utilize. Then it's time to drive home.
