Fårabackarna Old sheep pasture Nature reserveShow map
Fårabackarna is a Nature reserve that stretches out to sea in Skateholm.
Fårabackarna is a small but interesting remnant of the old farmer's way of life. The area was not fenced in like the fields and pastures, but used as an open pasture facing the sea. Today it is set between houses and summer cottages.
The moors at Fårabackarna are set in sand. The protected species of small pasque flower grows here. In the south part of the reserve heather dominates, but the reserve houses many plants, such as spike hairgrass, maiden pink, and meadow saxifrage.
Within the reserve it is forbidden to camp, ride horses or bike. Dogs must be on a leash and not allowed to disturb the plant- and wildlife.
