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 Smakupplevelser in Skåne and Timetolearn. We give you an experience you will remember. 

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 thinks.

A tasteful lunch of local produce

Close to nature food tastes like  best and even better when the food comes from the local cuisine. Pernilla from Smakupplevelser in Skåne serves a tasteful lunch in the greens with food and drinks from local producers. You will eat in the paddock with a view over Häckeberga and Romeleåsen. 

After lunch you will have to try herding if you want. It’s a challenge to be as effective as the dog!


The area is located a few hundred metres from the Skåneleden trail at Häckebergasjön outside Genarp.

Feel free to take a trip out if you will hike in the surroundings afterwards.

Practical details

The activity takes about 3h. The area 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.
