The family consist of Elsebeth and Bjarne as well as their three adult children: Marie, Jens and Peter who no longer live permanently on the farm but assist during harvest and other busy seasons.
Bjarne has the main responsibility for the farm and holds an MSc in Agricultural Economies. He likes to share his enthusiasm and knowledge about organic farming and guests are more than welcome to book him for a guided tour to learn about farming in Denmark. The livestock needs daily attention and at the feeding feeding hours at 9:00 and 17:00 there is always a need for helpers. During summer we tend to them by tractor to the fields while during winter months mainly at the stables. If you are keen to assist during your holiday there is always need for extra hands at a farm, ask Bjarne for an assignment that suits you and your children. Bjarne is a passionate sportsman and can advise you regarding good jogging or biking trails.
Elsebeth is the heart of the farm, where she was born and can tell many tales from the past. She holds a Bachelor Degree in Agriculture and is the chef and host of the Hellevad Watermill. Elsebeth’s passion is organic cooking. She has responsibility for the kitchen and flower gardens. When time permits she assists with the horses and pet animals. As a true chef she keeps inventing new delicacies from the farm’s healthy, organic products. Any guest at her table gets an gastronomic adventure beyond the ordinary and it completes the feeling of wellbeing at the end of the day indulging the farm’s own food prepared to perfection with passion and love.
We wish to give all our guest a unique experience through our hospitality and presence and we enjoy sharing the feeling of home and ownership with our many regular guests.
