The story behind Birkegårdens Haver
In 1970, Finn Sørensen bought Birkegården, which was then a small farmhouse with 10 pigs. From 1972 to 1978 they expanded the farm with land and buildings, so they ended up with 100 dairy cows and breeding.
Merry originally had neither special knowledge nor interest in plants but she had creativity and color sense.
It all started with Finn wishing for a small lake. The lake was excavated at an existing watering hole, and they laid lawn all the way from the farmhouse down to the lake. More and more people stopped and asked if they could see the garden. Then the interest in plants started and they built the Danish-English garden, which July 1, 1996, was opened of the public.
It became a great success, and already in 1997, they established the Japanese garden. In 1998, the Meditation Garden and Sandhaven were built. Later they build the convent garden, the prairie garden, and the latest gardens are the self-sufficiency garden – a permaculture garden.
Today there are only pets on the farm. The dairy cows were sold off in two stages, back in 1999 and 2001. In 1999, half of the stables were converted into a 200 m2 large store.
In recent years, Birkegårdens Haver has developed itself to not only be for guests with garden interest, but also for families with small and large children.
We hope you will enjoy a day in the beautiful, exciting and soothing environment!
