Kastebergs Gård is also home to an old farmhouse with all your favourite farm animals. This is steeped in history as the ancestors of the current owners at Kasteberg's Gård all grew up here, with the farm having been passed through many generations. They also grow a lot of rapeseed, which they then turn into rapeseed oil and sell to the public alongside their own meat produce. It’s no surprise then, that apples and rapeseed oil are featured ingredients on the homemade menu.
With an estimated 30,000 moose roaming in the forests of Småland, you can be almost guaranteed to spot one. For a guided sighting, head to Smålandet Moose Safari – a park in Sweden purpose-built for you to experience the moose in their natural habitat. The region also has a number of national parks, hiking and cycling trail, and thousands of glittering lakes. The municipalities of Alvesta, Ljungby and Älmhult form a genuine Land of Legends. Visit trolls’ mountains and giants’ rocks, holy springs and the waters of Neck, as well as dragons’ treasures and magic trees.
