In the year 1888 in the Royal Kingdom of Denmark, 47 farmers united to found their own dairy. Our fairy tale begins with a loan of 300 US dollars and 135 cows. Our first chairman was the local schoolteacher in the small village named Them in the beautifully curved Danish countryside.
History was shaped through dreams and hard work and little did we know when it all started that the united Danish cooperative dairy was forever to change the world of dairy. We have been standing firm since 1888 and we have kept our heritage strong. Its´ hard to beat real Danish dairy.
Organic cows in Denmark must have access to free pasture from April 15th to November 1st. Even in the wintertime, the cows must go to open-air areas for exercise. Besides, the feed for cows must be 100% organic, and a major part of the feed must be rough-age coming from the farm´s own pasture.
When the cow gives birth to the calf, the baby calf must be given the opportunity to satisfy its suckling need during the lactation period of 3 months.
If an organic cow is treated with veterinary medicine, the withdrawal period at our dairy is twice of non-organic milking cows.
The cows are carefully milked on our own farms and thoroughly tested on a zero-tolerance basis for antibiotics and thermo bacteria on farm level on every single milk collection. By any trace of antibiotics all the milk is rejected and send to waste.
The milk is transported in our own controlled milk tankers directly to our dairy. We are the only dairy in Denmark performing systematic testing for thermo bacteria on our tankers delivering the fresh milk to the Dairy.
The milk is freshly pasteurized using the newest and best technology to ensure a natural, rich and fresh organic taste. When spray drying our milk is gently processed and monitored all the way to keep taste and nutrients.
All our milk is immediately packed and delivered. We do not keep stock but produce in small series so we ensure only fresh milk is delivered to you. All products must pass the full test before release.
Denmark is the ideal country for dairy production with a climate and soil that provides optimum conditions for dairy farming. We are dedicated to keep it that way and Denmark is a world acknowledged frontrunner in environmental protection.
