What to do on the farm?

Mushroom picking

Take a walk and see if you can find any mushrooms in the woods. They always thrive after rainy, hot summers. Chantarelle and king bolete are some of the good species you may find. Please have the right of public access in mind when you are in nature.

Bicycling

It's an easy ride to both Hult, Höreda and Eksjö. Hult's camping offers swimming, crazy golf and icecream.

Animals on the farm

There are a bunch of different animals on the farm. Tame animals like horses, cows, sheep and cats can easily be spotted on the farm. If you are out walking in the forest you may also be able to see deers, fallow deers, hares, foxes, wild hogs and with some real luck you may even see the king of the woods, the moose! If you don't want to miss latter, we can recommend Moosepark in Målilla (69 km), Moosepark in Kosta (110km) and Moosepark in Ljungby (160km).

Golf

If you never have played golf before we recommend you to go to Boaryd's 9 holes pay-and-play course where no green card is required. The course is located between Hult and Eksjö about 8 km from the farm. The course is probably one of the most well-trimmed pay-and-play courses in the south of sweden, why even more professional players would want to play it. There are also Skedhult's 18-holes course not far from Eksjö and about 20 km from the farm. Eksjö Golf
