Hushållningssällskapet is a national body made up by 17 independent Rural Economy and Agricultural Societies.
The Rural Economy and Agricultural Societies is a modern and vibrant body of knowledge transfer with history extending all the way back to 1791. At that time agriculture was fundamental for the survival and prosperity of Sweden and its people. As famine was reality back then, there was immediate demand for knowledge transfer and research and development in order to secure food production.
Besides offering advice to rural businesses, we own a number of agricultural colleges and farms as well as run field trials and research and development projects in a range of areas all the way from farm to fork.
We are very proud of our origin and base in the rural economies, where using the natural resources wisely is central. Our future is in the health of our children, our students and sustainable communities that thrive by development, profitability and better business for our clients.
