The Edible Country

At Kastebergs Gård 

Dinner with a cow as a table neighbor!

A short way from the Kasteberg farm on winding gravel roads and through surging forest.

There in the middle of a meadow with cows roaming, there stands the table, a rustic Småland wooden table. The idea is that here you create your own experience and cook from raw materials from the farm's and nature's rich pantry!

Visit Sweden has placed a few tables in some of the most unique and beautiful places in Sweden. The goal is to create interest and curiosity about nature experiences and Sweden´s rich pantry. One of the tables are placed here at our farm. As our guest you are welcome to create your meal of ingredients from the farm and what to find in nature.

The Edible Country – at Kastebergs Gård

The table is placed in the middle of the most beautiful of cow pastures. Winding stone walls, old apple trees and a house foundation testify to the fact that there is a story to tell here. Surrounded by the buzz of the forest and the cows as the nearest table neighbor - this will be an experience you will never forget.
The food you cook on your own is Småland home cooking inspired by the farm's and seasonal produce. Depending on the season, you will find some of the ingredients in the kitchen garden, the forest or in the meadows on your walk up to the table. Once in place, it's up to you how you want to spend your afternoon. Maybe take a short walk in the surroundings or take a selfie with the cows before you start cooking.

Here's how:

1. Book a seat at the table and choose which experience you want, more information about the different options is available a little further down. There is room to book for 2 – 16 people at the table and can only be booked by one party at each time. NB! In the current circumstances, it is allowed to book for a maximum of 8 people.

2. Once you have made your reservation you will receive a confirmation by email. We will also contact you well in advance upon your arrival to personally welcome you to our farm.

The Drinkable Country

Welcome to book a unique drinking experience in our nature! In the concept The Drinkable Country you are invited to visit our "open air bar". In a few selected places around Sweden there is the opportunity to taste what nature has to offer, in the middle where the ingredients are found.
Sweden invites you to The Drinkable Country – an experience where local beverage crafts meet our unique nature. The drinks are developed by some of Sweden's foremost drinking experts, and then locally interpreted by us here at Kastebergs Gård.

At Kastebergs Gård we have agriculture in our blood – here we have been plowing and harvesting in pastures and fields for generations.
You will find our table just in such a place; in an open forest glade, in a beautiful meadow, where traces from previous farms are still there.
With us you get to experience flavors such as rapeseed, wild game and meadow acid.
This is a DO-IT-YOURSELF experience where you pick up a beverage kit from the farm shop with clear instructions, recipes and ingredients.

Afterthe experience, you have hopefully increased your knowledge of Swedish nature and its ingredients and learned more about how nature's pantry can turn into exciting drinking experiences.

Extra silver lining for your experience:

A good start to your experience starts with riding a tractor and wagon with the farmer. The farmer will guide you and drive you to the cow pasture where the table is placed. On the way there, the farmer shows "secret" places where you can pick up edibles for your meal. Once in place, the farmer tells stories and ducks about when Anders-Johan went on the suitor's door to Kasteberg, The Witch at Össlöv's bog and Zakrias Marie's cottage while quenching your thirst with the farm's cooling rhubarb.
