Skåne County (Swedish: Skåne län), sometimes referred to as Scania County in English, is the southernmost county or län, of Sweden, basically corresponding to the traditional province Skåne.
Area total: 11,034.5 km2 (4,260.4 sq mi) and around 1,3 million of us are living here. We are a farmer county … we grow anything … mostly potatoes, peas, rapeseed, grains, sugar beets, flax, apples, corn, onion, strawberries and we make Absolute Vodka. Pig farming is big and we produce a lot of dairy products, especially milk.
And we love our food … we have a saying – “Good food, lots of food and food on time.”
“I feel best in open countryside,
Near the sea, I want to stay
A few months a year,
So that the soul can rest.
I feel best in open landscapes,
Where the winds get up.
There, the larks are high in the sky
And sings wonderfully.
Where I can burn my liquor myself,
And season it with St. John’s Wort
And drink it with pleasure,
To herring and homemade bread.
I feel best in open countryside,
Near the sea, I want to stay.”
