Farm stays in North Jutland

Farm stay is the closest you will get to experiencing country life. In North Jutland, we have many lovely farms, which are certified for farm stays. You live at or by the farm in an independent building or your own room, and you are free to come and go as you please.

Your farm holiday

The holiday type "Farm stay" is often offered by farms with active agriculture, which provides you with an opportunity to participate in the farm's different activities. If you want, you can pet a cow, collect eggs, scratch a pig's back or gather hay. Since the farm has active agriculture, you can't always count on the hosts having the resources to offer meals at the farm. This will appear in the description of the farm if it offers meals or not during your stay.

Whether you can have your meals on the farm or not, your stay takes place in your own home, which can either be a separate house, an independent apartment, or your own private room on the farm.

An organic farm stay

You can also experience this type of holiday in an organic way, where everything is organic and the served meals are based on organic products - often from the farm itself.

The other option of farm stay, is countryside holiday, where you live in a separate building, whether it is a house or apartment, on the farm containing a bedroom, living room, kitchen and bathroom. Here there is no opportunity to eat on the farm.

The farm does not necessarily have any agriculture of its own, but if there is you can participate in the activities and walk freely everywhere. Many of the farms offer different activities such as riding trips, fireplace-evenings with cosiness and "snobrød" (baked bread on a stick) or grill-evenings. This type of vacation is ideal if you want to live in the countryside, but also prefer a permanent base where you can explore the nature and attractions of the area.
