History and Family

Tiraholm is situated on a penisula on the west-coast of Lake Bolmen. Its closeness to water made Tiraholm a natural habitation where Bronze-age burial grounds have been found. In the beginning of the fifteenth century the first known owner of Tiraholm was Peter Gumundsson.

The legendary Ebbe Skammelsson is supposed to have lived here several hundred years ago.

In 1928 grandfather Per Ekwall bought Tiraholm, and the farm was cultivated by him and his family and was taken over in the late forties by his son Gustaf.

We, that is Vicky and Nisse Ekwall, rented the farm from 1981, initially we farmed the land and started the fishery, after a couple of years we decided to concentrate on fishing. In 1986 we bought Tiraholm and at that time we also had our children, Jens and Malin, Jonas appeared a couple of years later. Since the beginning of the nineties we have had employed staff.

The business has growned and Tiraholm is now its own destination with a farm shop, a fresh water fish restaurant - the only one in Sweden,  both selling and serving only the fish we catch in lake Bolmen nearby. In 2018 we had the fortune to open up an hotel on the premesis.

We do look forward to welcome you!
