Garnanäs Farm has a long history
Garnanäs Farm has a long history. The oldest building on the farm is from the 1700s. The stables were built in 1884 and are claimed to have been moved from Bommerstorp in Ronneby to Garnanäs Gård. The barn was built in 1887.
A hundred years ago there were 12 people working on the farm.
There are 10 small islands that belong to the farm, which today are partially grazed by our sheep.
Gården var värnpliktig
In 1912 Jörgen Garngård’s grandfather, together with his wife, bought the farm. During World War II they ran a café in the courtyard, and many military officers
were housed in the main building. During this time the military assembled a set of anti-aircraft cannons, which they called Cannon Ryssjön. It consisted of 5 anti-aircraft cannons, which were built into the cliffs. Each grenade weighed 360 kg, and each cannon weighed 120 tons.
Until 1987, Garnanäs Gård could be legally commandeered by the military.
This meant that the farm had to be prepared at all times, for the military’s need to accommodate crew and set up a command centre, should the need arise.
Large amounts of stone were cut and exported, mainly to Germany for the development of their road network. Mining ceased shortly before World War II.
