We have arranged our life on a liberal attitude based
on Grundtvig, combined with a social attitude, where the values
of the near society have guided all our activity. We have
been used to making decisions both for ourselves and for others
on the basis of logical arguments, and we both work very structured
Through our educations, registered accountant (Jytte) and
mate, veterinarian, and manager (Knud), and through our many
leisure-time activities in politics and society work we have
both of us built up a strong network to many dedicated people
of the society while at the same time we have from our own
experience got to know the conditions of both the entrepreneur
and the established.
With the experiences from an incredibly rich and active life
we have since 1997 been running a unique course- and holiday
center at Kolleruplund where we also have our home. The farm
with its nature, where the sky never has the same color, where
hares, roes, foxes, pheasants, partridges, herons and the
red kite are daily visitors, where the nightingale sings from
mid-May to Midsummer Day while there is a ground mist, and
where we used to have our own domestic animals and a big vegetable
garden, is a value we wish to share with others. On grounds
of our age we have now closed down the course center and continue
running the entire house as a fascinating holiday house.
We have learned that many people are forgetting or have never
realized from where our food is coming, and how tasty real
food can be, how exciting it is to cook together with others,
and, not least, how important the daily food is to our health
and well-being. We therefore attach great importance to an
all-round kitchen garden that delivers the vegetables of the
seasons and, together with raw materials purchased from good
suppliers, make up our healthy food.
We believe that the respect for nature, which many people
speak of in their holier-than-thou attitude, can be transformed
into the running of a unique holiday house where we have chosen
genuine materials in brick and wood, with solar heat and Finnish
mass stove as the main heating units, and with the latest
AV equipment, B&O music and sound centre, and an up-to-date
large kitchen with own wine cellar and cold room, all of it
in our beautiful surroundings.
