    Description

    We are Inga and Jens Peter, we run an organic dairy farm and Agro turism/B&B on the westcoast of Denmark (jutland) close to a cozy little city called Lemvig.

    We have just arond 160 cows that we milk, then we have calves, pigs, hens, bunnies, peacocks, horses, a dog and lots of outdoor cats, and 2 indoor cats.

    We milk 2 times a day, early in the morning and once in the evening. year round.

    In summer we let the cows in and out every day with help from our border collie dog "Sille" and the atv. We have sesonal calving, so in May-July all or most of our calving happens, in those months we tjek on them every hour/2 hour, from May to September is also your high season with the Agro turism/B&B, and the farm is pretty busy in this time. We often have piglets in summer too.
    lots of garden work in this time too, picking berries, plums, making juice and jams.

    In fall there is a lot of havesting, driving tractor and machinery. Toasting horse beans.
    picking apples, juice and jams

    Winter, milking cows and all the other usual farm rutines.
    prune trees, baking

    Spring, lot of field work, fencing, getting the seeds in the ground
    Veggie garden

    We are also likely to have a project going on, like expanding the chicken house, expanding our pond, planting trees.
    Other than that your daughter have a little forrest that is a well visited place for the neighbors, we help her take care of while she is traveling, cutting down trees, mowing the lawn, picking apples, groving hops, that we intend to brew beer with

    we have 5 adult "kids" 37, 31, 29, 26 and 25, all of them likes to travel and likes to meet other cultures, they visit often, our grandchildren as well. Always lots of life on the farm.

    it will be possible ride horses as well, if you have riding experience or if our daughter is home she can teach you.

    We are very openminded people, and like to get to know new people
