We are so lucky to live on a property with an incredibly beautiful nature, which we enjoy living right in the middle of every day.
We have, for example, five small lakes (marl pits), very old trees, a rippling brook through it all and an old plantation, which today mainly consists of very large maples.
In 2006 we chose to make a nature plan for the property, and this meant that we subsequently planted several small habitats, established insect corridors and soil strips, and in recent years we have chosen to sow flower mixtures in our fields for the benefit of the fauna.
In recent years, we have set up a number of nesting boxes for small birds as well as owls and kestrels.
In order for you, as our guests, and ourselves to enjoy the initiatives, we have established paths around the property, so it is now possible to walk through the biotopes, over the stream, through the old plantation and around the poplar grove.
There is a high probability that you will see either a hare, a deer, the pheasant or some of the many beautiful birds, which especially appreciate the berry bushes. You may also be lucky enough to see the heron standing by the brook or one of the small lakes.
We keep the paths mowed, but on several of our other grassy areas we have chosen to leave the grass uncut for the benefit of the insects.
Along the paths you will find signs informing about the nature at our property.
At national level, we are registered under the Agriculture and Food Council as a "Bee-friendly property", which means that we have made various initiatives that cater to the bees. This can be, for example, making sure to plant white-flowering native trees and shrubs in the small habitats, leaving the cut branches and twigs in the small habitats after pruning and leaving obsolete trees standing as well as preserving the large old trees. It also makes it seem a bit messy in some places when you walk around here on the property, but as you can see, it is for the benefit of nature.
Billund Municipality has launched a project called "Wild Enterprise" for the benefit of nature, and here we have chosen to participate. One of our initiatives is to sow flower mixtures that cater for insects, bees and small game.
