Visit Småland

The Edible Country - Småland

You’ll find one of the two tables deep in the forest, standing on the soft moss, right by Asa Herrgård (manor), and the other by Wallby Säteri on the edge of Skirö lake. Far from stress and everyday life, the tables are situated in the midst of nature either surrounded by conifers with the sky its ceiling at Asa Herrgård, or by beautiful meadows and billowing pastures right by the lake at Wallby Säteri. You cook your meal on site and the seasonal ingredients are found right there in the forest, on the meadows, and in the lake. Reserve your seat right now!
