But there are many other producers of fine food products such as bread, herbal drinks and other delicacies. Creativity is thriving within the craft industry - visit carpenters, potters, weavers and textile producers.

Skärvångens Bymejeri

Skärvången
Guided tours / Food experience / Farm shops / Second hand
Sample the delicious cheese made in harmony with nature. Gastronomists worldwide praise the products from the little village dairy in Ska¨rva°ngen. The dairy is located in Ska¨rva°ngen, a village clearly affected by the dairy’s activities. The grazing cows and goats keep the whole landscape around the village open. Their milk is then made into top- quality cheese. These cheeses are perhaps the finest example of Ja¨mtland ‘slow food’, made in harmony with nature. The dairy has tours at 13.00 every day in summer. You’ll also be able to taste the dairy’s 25 types of cheese laid out on a delectable buffet in the dairy’s outdoor cafe´. You should also visit So¨rbodarna, a summer pasture for the milk providers between Ha¨ggsjo¨vik and Bakvattnet. It’s a perfect excur- sion for families with children. Here you can also enjoy delightful coffees and snacks.
