A taste of Öland
Going on an excursion to discover new places is always cozy and also cooking over an open fire is something very special and creates memories that we carry with us through life. Meeting family and friends outdoors with plenty of space is not only nice but also a safe way to socialize.
Here we therefore want to recommend some of the island's landscaped barbecue areas. The barbecue areas are open to everyone and can not be booked in advance. Of course, you put out the fire and clean up after yourself when you go so that it is just as cozy for the next visitor.

Öland, the destination for all tastes!
Agriculture and its production have characterized Öland and the islanders since time immemorial. The farmers who live and work here, take great pride in quality and are constantly interested in development. Various projects on processing are underway and there is always a great interest in trying new exciting products. It is not entirely easy to cultivate on the whole of Öland and the rocky soil and proximity to the limestone bedrock sometimes puts the farmers to hard tests. On Öland, potatoes and many other vegetables are grown, large quantities of beans of both traditional varieties but also new ones. The growing interest in vegetables is noticeable when farmers invest in lentils and Borlotti beans. In the wild, chives and berries grow, and above all Öland is known for its herbs.
Interest in locally produced food is growing and on Öland, producers are following the trend. Farm shops, foremen, farm dairies and processors take careful care of raw materials and offer a wide range of high quality. The grazing animals that nibble on herbs from the beach meadows and keep the landscape open are an important part of the agricultural culture on Öland. The herbs get nourishment from the limestone base and the potatoes get their best taste from sandy soils in the north. In the farm shops there is ham, country milk, cheese, eggs, vegetables and fruit. Examples of Öland food processing and production are broad. Finding Öland drinks with the food is not difficult. Micro-format temples and breweries are located on the island and even grapes are grown for wine production.
