Grantoftegaard Farm

Grantoftegaard is a very cosy farm set in a picturesque village called Pederstrup. It is open all year around. We got to know about it and visited it today during the Organic Harvest Day. During the Organic Harvest Day that takes place every year in September, the farm puts up a special program. In fact, the whole village Pederstrup is closed to traffic today for this event, and we also got to visit the adjoining Ballerup Museum.

When we arrived the farm, we saw the program of the day and the map of the farm.

Here is the program of the farm (in Danish only)

You can see some goats too and jump on the hay.

You get to see sheep and could also participate in a wool workshop - We didn't have time to join the workshop, as we were rushing to church

You could try to grind your own flour with the miniature grinder. You get to keep the wheat flour that you ground. It was a long queue, thus we didn't get to try. Could you see the big grinder behind?

Hay playground for jumping

Kids had fun going around in the hay cave

You see some pigs too

Behind is the Grantoftegaard farm and the Pederstrup village. It was quite magical. Just outside, it is civilization, and just across this path, you enter all things quaint and picturesque, but yet a living village and a living farm.

We had a great time at the farm. It has a fantastic atmosphere, also thanks to the weather. We will definitely visit it again.
