Sheep & Food
Herd sheep and enjoy local food – a unique experience
Imagine a short visit to Scotland or Wales. You sit down on the slopes around Häckebergasjön.
During three hours you get to experience the interplay between sheep and herding dogs and enjoy a tasty lunch in the green, Skåne.
About Sheep & Food
Sheep & Food is a collaboration between Smak hiking Skåne and Timetolearn. Several of the participating producers are members of Regional food culture Skåne.
Learn about the exciting interplay between sheep and dogs
If you have not been through the interplay between shepherd dog and sheep before, you will now experience something new. You will get really close and see the impressive interaction when the shepherd dog controls the sheep. Behind this is a lot of work. You will learn more about how to train a shepherd dog, how it works and what the sheep means.
A tasteful lunch of local produce
Close to nature tastes like food as best and even better when the food comes from the local cuisine. Pernilla from a taste hike in Skåne serves in connection with sheep waxing a rich and tasteful lunch in the green with food and drinks from local producers. We serve in the paddock with a view over Häckeberga and Romeleåsen. Wax yourself!
After lunch you will have to try herding if you want. It’s a challenge to be as effective as the dog!
Fårhagen is located a few hundred metres from the Skåneleden trail at Häckebergasjön outside Genarp.
Feel free to take a trip out if you are hiking in the surroundings.
Fårhagen is not wheelchair-or stroller-friendly. Expect us to move around in the paddock and walk a few kilometers. Parking is available outside the Paddock. Dogs can be taken on a leash provided the dog is accustomed to sheep and does not react if sheep come close.
Dress in comfortable clothes for the weather and have hiking-friendly shoes.
The activity takes about 3h and it is good if you dress after the weather. Good and sturdy shoes are preferable, but not necessary. This activity is suitable for adults and kids over the age of 7, with good fitness. Paths and roads are not always wheelchair-friendly but the dog is welcome to accompany.

Reviews for this tasting hike
A big thank you for the very nice tasting that was invited on 1 May. You had arranged with a nice weather, but a bit very windy, but it was good anyway. A very nice round in beautiful scenery and with a moderate speed so that everyone could keep up with. Fantastic products from local producers, tastefully presented to us. A very good presentation of the products, and further about the landscape. All this mixed with nice anecdotes and stories from times gone by.
We are very grateful to you.
