In the old agricultural society, it was necessary to keep the farm animals grazing during the summer months, so that the more easily cultivated land could be used for growing crops for the household. Keeping farming and animals in this way has been common in the northern and central parts of Sweden, of course also in Dalarna, which in fact is Kurbits Snus' geographical source of inspiration. Fäboddrift has its own tradition regarding culture and customs, with a sharp focus on flavours, aromas and cooking. In the older society, many products were manufactured out on the summer pastures as it increased the shelf life of the fresh milk by refining the raw material into butter, cheese, whey cheese and other things that could be made out on the summer pasture.
Working on the summer pasture was often a job for the women who raised the animals and produced things that would help the household cope with the severe winters that prevailed up here in the north. It was a job that required a lot of imagination and courage, as both desolation and wolves were a constant threat out on the summer pasture. The mountain hut culture has pulled its weight when it comes to creating Swedish folk music and it is out on the summer pastures that many of our culinary delights have been created in terms of food culture.
Fäbodsnus is intended to be a light summer breeze by an evening fire.
In our snus, we do not use milk as a raw material, but high-quality tobacco that we refine in order to capture the feeling of balmy summer evenings with the scent of forest, tarred houses and summer meadows. We have created a snus where the barren rawness meets the sweetness and long-lasting traditional flavours of Swedish cooking. Fäbodsnus is intended to be a light summer breeze by an evening fire. Above hangs a cauldron filled with whey that will become the cheese of the winter, and the feeling of calmness and well-being gets a chance to surface in our otherwise so hurried senses.
