Did You Know...

Tomten Farm and Sanctuary is named after Swedish author Astrid Lindgren's book, "The Tomten." Adapted from a poem by Viktor Rydberg, the book shares the legend of the Tomten—a mystical Scandinavian gnome-like figure who lives in the barn secretly protecting the animals and their farm.
