Gro Spiseri

It was in 2014 that three young people decided to transform the 600m2 (717.6 square yards) rooftop of Copenhagen’s oldest car auction house into an urban garden where vegetable fields and greenhouses would be cultivated and chickens, rabbits and bees would be raised. With the help of 100 neighbours and volunteers, ØsterGRO was born and became Denmark’s first roof farm. For two seasons, Stedsans was housed on the rooftop serving its guests with dishes prepared with ØsterGRO’s organic ingredients. When it moved to Sweden, GroSpiseri took its place. The long wooden table, the experienced chefs, and the fresh ingredients can still be found on Copenhagen’s coolest rooftop, so make sure to stop by and taste their delicious meals.

Fuglebjerggaard

Fuglebjerggaard

Camilla Plum’s farm, Fuglebjerggaard, has been certified as organic since the 1990s. Nowadays, it has animals such as sheep and pigs, grasslands, ornament gardens, and a great variety of seeds and vegetables. When the kitchen doesn’t function as a pop-up restaurant, guests can just visit the farm and buy the organic products from the farm shop. Those who want to get a glimpse of how the farm works can join the gardening courses and tours or get an insight of how taste and sustainability can be combined in tasty meals with the cookery and baking courses.

Knuthenlund

Covering an area of 960 hectares (2372.2 acres), Knuthenlund is one of the most popular and largest organic farms in Denmark. Organic milk, dairy products, and vegetables from the renowned organic farm are sold at Irma supermarkets and in Michelin-starred restaurants all over the country. The farm’s café serves organic delicacies and beverages while also offering picnic baskets filled with sandwiches for those who want to eat their lunch in nature. Knuthenlund is located in southeastern Denmark on the island of Lolland.

Muld

Muld

Approximately a one hour drive from Copenhagen stands Muld, a beautiful organic farm with more than 300 edible plants, sheep, pigs, and poultry. When an event takes place, guests (maximum 80) can visit the cozy restaurant and taste its delicious dish made of the farm’s fresh ingredients. Aside from the regular Wednesday yoga classes, Muld hosts different kinds of events such as piano concerts, workshops, and the muld-dinners where guests share the long wooden table while savouring delicious meals and beverages.
