The shop itself is full of quality raw materials and meat from its own animals, both beef, veal and pork. No additives or growth promoters are used here and the animals are guaranteed a good life, visit f.ex. the pigs that go rooting about in the ground out in the fields.
After a visit to the meat producers, cheese must now be tasted. The old cooperative dairy Them cheese is a short bike ride away. Here you can find all kinds of cheeses and fresh milk from the farms in the catchment area. If time allows, also visit Gothenborg with their prize winning poultry.

- Cycle helmet (can be borrowed)
Good advice for packing list
- Cycle shorts. A pair of regular pants will not protect against the wear and tear that will occur against the saddle. The double pads in the cycling pants allow you to slide from side to side on the saddle without hurting your skin, giving you a much more relaxed position on the bike without getting sore.
- Rain. In case of rain, it is a good idea to pack a raincoat. You can get special rain covers to cycle in which can cover hands and arms when they are holding the handlebars.
- Cycle helmet. It is not a requirement from our side, but it is always a good idea to wear a bicycle helmet, especially when cycling on roads with motor traffic.

Our bikes are maintained according to the manufacturer's instructions and we always have an extra bike in reserve if necessary.

The shop is comfortably furnished, like an old-fashioned grocery store. Here you can shop and have an experience out of the ordinary. In addition to quality meat, we sell specialties such as ice desserts, freshly ground coffee, tea, a large selection of oils, balsamic vinegar, salts, spices, pesto, cheeses, jam, chocolate, arts and crafts and much more. We have our own wine cellar, with an exquisite selection of wine, beer and some spirits.

Them Andelsmejeri - good milk and good craftsmanship
At Them Andelsmejeri, we emphasize old-fashioned care and milk from cows that thrive. We collect fresh milk of the very best quality every day in our own tankers from our own farms. 13 farmers own the dairy, and all the farms are located in the beautiful area around Them.
Good milk and good craftsmanship are needed to make good cheese. Them Andelsmejeri has stubbornly stuck to this since 1888.
In the shop you will find a large selection of special cheeses, fresh milk and butter.
