The Café at Skovsgaard Manor

Delicious locally produced organic food. Most of the raw ingredients come from Skovsgaards own fields and stables.

The cafe is beautifully situated, next to the moat that surrounds the manor house. In the kitchen you will find Sally Lundgren directing proceedings with her wooden spoon in hand. Sally shares Skovsgaard’s passion for organic food. She loves to prepare delicious meals from seasonal, locally produced ingredients. She gathers her raw materials from the fields, stables, forests and even the beach.

Here at Skovsgaards Café great tasting food goes hand in hand with local ingredients, sustainability to make a great story. You will be surprised time and time again how something so simple can taste so good.

Opening times and the current menu can be found on Skovgaard’s website and on Facebook.

Home grown vegetables
Most of the produce sold in the café is produced at Skovgaard itself. Vegetable production here at Skovsgaard Manor is carried out with the aim of creating new high products, improving quality, and a “greener” way of enjoying good food.

Today far more vegetables are produced than can be eaten by the thousands guests who visit the estate each year. Therefor Skovsgaard now works in partnership with the company Dansk Catering, who buy most of the vegetables produced here on the estate.

The Market Garden
Skovsgaard grows its vegetables using a highly efficient, tractor free system of cultivation. In what is called “the Pometergarden”, healthy, great tasting vegetables are grown in between rows of old fruit trees. Sowing, weeding and harvesting are all carried out by hand by the estate’s many volunteers. The plants grow in nutrient rich, naturally composted soil, where they are able to grow to their full natural size and develop the special characteristic unique to each variety.
