Take the opportunity to use the fantastic right of public access, “Allemansrätten” now that the Vimmerby forests are full of late summer and autumn goodies.
Lingonberries, blueberries, chanterelles and porcini mushroom are the favorites to add to the basket during a forest excursion. The options are then endless, how about, delicious blueberry pies, slightly sour lingonberry drink, buttery chanterelle sandwiches and creamy mushroom sauces.
Welcome out in nature!
