  • Description

    Description

    We bought a run down farm 10 years ago and have worked hard to create one of the best bed and breakfasts in Denmark.
    We decided to let the belonging farmland return to its original state and thus become a wilderness santuary.
    Denmark is due to industrial farming depleting natural diversity. The farm is becoming a Noah's ark for insects and birds.
    We hope to buy the adjacent farmland in the years to come and hopefully ensure it for all future, farm free, poisonfree and living wild.
