The farming carried out at Børglum Abbey consists solely of crop cultivation.
On the 436 hectares belonging to Børglum Abbey, we cultivate approx. 230 ha of wheat, approx. 40 ha of barley, approx. 30 ha of oats, approx. 40 ha of winter rape and 50 ha of grass seed.
The wheat is used for bread and animal feed, the barley for beer brewing, the oats for oatmeal and animal feed, and the winter rape is used for oil, e.g. biodiesel and cooking oil.
Denmark is one of the world leaders in producing grass seed, and Danish seeds are used around the world for sports grounds, golf courses and grass fields.
We cultivate the old Danish species of wheat Emmer and Spelt as part of our plans to establish a “special malt house”. There is not very much space, but still it allows us to learn a great deal about how to handle these types of grain.
Finally, a small area has been set aside for “Energy Willow” – an almost CO2-free fuel.
We receive quite a bit of manure from other farms that do not have sufficient land to cover their livestock production needs.
